The opportunity is favorable, the prerequisite ideal. Much that seemed impossible just a few years ago may suddenly become reality: Facades are green, streets are filled with life, holidays take place at home, the garden or the park around the corner is more important than one’s own parking.

Landscape and open space can — and have to — become different. Change. Permanent. Now!

We plan for the world of tomorrow. The climate is changing and with it the familiar landscapes and the importance of open space. Society places new demands on fair and sustainable living spaces: positive landscape experiences right on the doorstep, diverse public spaces filled with life regardless of social status and financial opportunities, less energy consumption in construction and operation, no pesticides, ambitious promotion of biodiversity.

We reflect to what extent our tested methods and design approaches are suitable for finding new solutions — we formulate visions for shaping the future.

Now! is the moment to tackle the burning issues and develop new skills that allow us to shape the future together.

Now! is the moment to question proven patterns and make decisions differently in our daily work – more reflected, more sustainable.

Now! is the moment to set the course for a visionary engagement with the designing of our living spaces.
