Rapperswiler Tag
April 5, 2019


The intact nature, the ideal city with a lively living envi­ron­ment: as landscape architects we are orientated to­wards model pictures of an environment worth living — towards ideals.

We aspire to compose land­scape considering the needs of society. Open spaces, as space for acti­vities and experiences, should meet the func­tional and emotional needs of their users. Their needs are diverse and some­times difficult to capture.

Designed open spaces need to consider nature and topography, but also culturally-­topologically aspects. In our projects, beauty should be achieved, without static ideal images restricting usage.

The better the composition, the better society can respond to the designed environment, with identification, adoption and further development of open spaces.

At the Rapperswiler Tag, professionals report about their research, experiences and analysis with ideals and ask the following questions:
— What do we consider as ideal?
— Who can make his ideals heard and enforce them?
— How do we translate ideals into projects and how do we deal with contradictory ideals?
