Landscape and environmental planning are part of engineering sciences and conversely, a cultural landscape would be impossible without engineers. Technical innovations are often complements of inventions in the landscape architecture field. How we deal with infrastructure is an important issue when it comes to the specific characteristics of a region. Infrastructure is an integral part of cultural landscapes; it determines their look and feel and is responsible for providing the means of using and developing the area.


What forms of open space are now generated by hybrid infrastructure constructions? What landscape images do they create and how do they determine perceptions and understanding of landscape?

How can the involvement of landscape planners help in the design of functional constructions?

What interdisciplinary knowledge and learning experiences are necessary to find satisfactory methods of dealing with these structures and their possible alteration - in technical, environmental and design terms?
