Workshop „Methoden visueller Kommunikation in der räumlichen Planung“ 15./16.02.2018 - Kassel

Im Fokus:

 Visualisierungsmethoden für Planer

 Visuelle Kommunikation zwischen Planern

 Visuelle Kommunikation zwischen Planern und Öffentlichkeit  Visuelle Forschungsmethoden

 Visuelle Kommunikationsmethoden angrenzender Disziplinen

Visualisierungen sind in den verschiedensten Wissenschaften und Disziplinen - unter ihnen auch in der räumlichen Planung - zu einem unentbehrlichen Instrument zur Produktion und Vermittlung von Wissen geworden (Schnettler/Pötzsch 20071). „Ikonografische Wende“ (Boehm 19942) - „Revolution der Bilder“ (Flusser 19963) und weitere derartigen Ausrufe in den traditionell bildorientierten Wissen- schaften beschreiben die - zumeist theoretischen - Auseinandersetzungen mit den „expandierenden Bildwelten“ (Schnettler/Pötzsch 2007). Dies steht einer Lücke planungsbezogener Reflexion gegenüber.

In der Landschaftsplanung und Landschaftsarchitektur ist die Aneignung und Entwicklung visueller Kommunikationskompetenz aus mehreren Gründen von grundlegendem Interesse: Landschaft wird vom Menschen überwiegend auf der Basis visueller Eindrücke und derartiger Erinnerungen individu- ell konstruiert. Dementsprechend erfolgt der Zugang zur Landschaft für einen großen Teil der Öffent- lichkeit durch visuelle Wahrnehmung, so dass der visuellen Kommunikation über Landschaft eine besondere Bedeutung zukommt. Im Zuge der in den letzten Jahrzehnten stärkeren kommunikativen Ausrichtung der Planung gewinnen Methoden visueller Kommunikation zum Beispiel im Rahmen öffentlicher Mitwirkung an Bedeutung. Aktuell sind Innovationen im Bereich digitaler Medien und interaktiver Darstellungstechnik zu beobachten, welche visuelle Kommunikation in der Planung ver- ändern und erweitern. Hierzu gehören bereits gängige Methoden, die adaptiert bzw. über das Internet verfügbar gemacht werden, wie z.B. Public Participatory GIS (PPGIS), aber auch völlig neue Methoden wie z.B. Virtual Reality. Manche Methoden kombinieren bisher getrennt erscheinende Bereiche z.B. im forschenden Entwerfen. Ein weiteres breites Handlungsfeld ergibt sich im Bereich Social Media.

Die Formen der Kommunikation betreffen unterschiedliche Arbeitsbereiche von Landschaftsplanung und Landschaftsarchitektur und schließen verschiedene Methoden und verschiedene Techniken zur Darstellung und Sichtbarmachung von Landschaft ein. Die Disziplin kann auf eine lange Tradition in der visuellen Kommunikation in Form von Karten- und Plandarstellungen sowie visueller Konzeptualisierungen zurückgreifen. Jedoch fehlt es in der entsprechenden Literatur an theoreti- schen Herleitungen von Kriterien und Ansprüchen an planungsbezogener visueller Kommunikation (Lange und Bishop 2005; Sheppard 2012). Bislang greift die Planung auf das methodische Repertoire

LANDSCAPES FOR

COMPACT CITIES

 

The compact city form has in the past two decades been actively promoted as a desirable
urban form that influences the economic, environmental, and social performance
of cities, particularly in the context of nudging cities towards achieving a higher level of
urban sustainability. While the exact effect of compact city form on urban sustainabilityis
still debated, its key arguments of higher density, mixed use and proximate development,
and accessibility to public facilities and amenities have been promoted as key
principles to guide urban development by numerous municipalities and international
organizations, including the United Nations, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation
and Development, and the European Union. In this Special Issue of JoLA, we focus
on the role of urban landscapes in the discourse and implementation of the compact
city ideal.
Despite the well-recognized benefits of urban landscapes in diverse areas such as health
promotion, support of biodiversity, and the regulation of the urban climate and hydrology,
there has, surprisingly, been very little written about the relationships, roles, and
designs of urban landscapes in the context of compact cities. Does the compact city
primarily accommodate or exclude urban landscapes? What do current examples tell us?
When these questions are considered against recent concepts such as landscape
urbanism, ecological urbanism, landscapes as infrastructure, etcetera, an even fuzzier
image emerges. How do these concepts complement or contradict the green,
compact city ideal?
We invite critical contributions that discuss these questions, and more. Contributions can
include theoretical discourses, conceptual frameworks, or case studies on the roles of
landscapes in compact cities, focusing on issues of health and well-being, environment,
biodiversity, community relationships, and so forth.
We look forward to receiving thoughtful and thought-provoking articles, submissions
for Under the Sky and Thinking Eye, as well as book reviews for this theme issue. Articles
submissions are limited to 4,000 words, including endnotes and references; Under the
Sky submissions should be limited to 3,000 words, including endnotes and references,
as specified in the instructions to authors: www.tandfonline.com/rjla.

We regret to let you know that Dr Mihály Mőcsényi, professor emeritus and holder of the highest national prizes in science and creation, the Széchenyi and Kossuth Prizes, passed at the age of 97 on September 14th, 2017.

He had a worldwide international reputation based on his activity as IFLA vice president in 1978-1986, then as president of IFLA in 1986-1990. As a result of His professional participation, Hungary was given the right to organize the 1984 IFLA World Congress.

On the occasion of his 90th birthday, for his successful work in the field of European education of landscape architecture, for his discipline and school promoting career, ECLAS bestowed the ECLAS Lifetime Achievement Award on professor Mihály Mőcsényi. In 2012, as an acknowledgement of his outstanding professional work and school development, he received the most respected award for landscape architecture in the world - the IFLA founded Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe Prize.

Thanks to his cutting-edge professional results, perseverance, the setting of example and charismatic personality, Dr Mihály Mőcsényi has been a role model for numerous generations of our profession in the past 7-8 decades.

JoLA ‘Under the Sky’ invites the submission of critical reviews of built landscape and urban design projects that focus on concepts and strategies of reuse for a special issue dedicated to landscape criticism. Submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed.

 

Landscapes undergo cycles of use and reuse, whether of materials, processes and pro- grammes, natural elements, or built structures. The making of new parks, gardens, and public projects is a history of site transformation, of adapting and overlaying new spaces that respond to changing cultural, economic, and political forces. reuse is a means of both preserving what was valuable or particular to a site and allowing new functions

 

and spaces to arise.

 

Ideas of reuse have characterized seminal projects of twentieth-century landscape archi- tecture, for instance duisburg Nord in the ruhr Valley, which reclaims industrial artefacts for new recreation. More recent landscape design projects suggest other potentials for reuse: West 8’s redesign of Fort Vechten, Utrecht, demonstrates perhaps one of the most hopeful components of reuse in that it values the provision of plant and animal habitats as much as the provision of spaces for people.

 

 

 

CALL FOR PROJECT CRITIQUES

 

We seek critiques that examine and reveal how ideas of reuse have become defining ele- ments in a landscape architecture or urban design project. We are looking for scholarly reviews of built projects that will allow for depth and rigour in interpretation and analysis from the first commission to post-construction reception and use. Critiques may inves- tigate how reuse, particularly of cultural and industrial artefacts, has historically been

 

a defining characteristic in landscape architecture and urban design or has become increasingly important to contemporary practice.

 

We are particularly interested in submissions that are cognizant of and advance different forms of criticism (‘What it is’) and the effects it has (‘Why it matters’). These may range from the use of specific disciplinary, philosophical, and professional frameworks, to the exploration and experimentation of different modes of writing, applied to the reading

 

of a landscape of reuse. Approaches and practices of criticism should be explicit in the submissions. Their particular efficacy in analyzing and interpreting landscapes of reuse should be reflected upon.

 

Written texts of a maximum of 3,000 words including references should be supported by illustrations, analytical drawings, and photographs (a maximum of 15 figures).

CALL FOR VISUAL ESSAYS

 

TE SELECTED SHORTS

 

 

 

‘TE Selected Shorts’ encourages brief, cogent visual explorations in landscape architec- ture and urbanism. Contributions to be published are chosen by a panel of scholars, artists, and designers.

 

 

 

We are looking for original visual essays that demonstrate how ideas of reuse yield

 

new forms of public spaces through the application of a rigorous, inventive visual meth- odology. Work might include diagrams, models and sculptures, collages, photographs, drawings, paintings, animations, films, installations, or any combination of media.

 

A process of making focused on reuse might be applied to the critical interpretation of a site or have been instrumental to the design process for a particular project.

 

 

 

• reuse of man-made materials and structures, of cultural and industrial artefacts.

 

 

 

• reuse and judicious retention of vegetation, soils, or hydrological regimes.

 

 

 

• programmatic (social, cultural, ecological) transformation in one built project over time.

 

 

 

• park/project as palimpsest.

 

 

 

Methods, materials, and process should be explicit in submissions and work should be situated in relation to other artists, designers, or theorists exploring notions of reuse in their art and design practice.

 

 

 

‘Selected Shorts’ typically comprise a maximum of 5 images and 300 words of text (including captions and references).
