The Forming of Landscape

The Chair of Prof. Girot reopened the debate on the forming of landscape with our Topology Symposium’s 3 days of talks and discussions at the ETH Semper Aula, from October 11th to 13th, 2012.

The term “Topology” refers to our position: Landscape Architecture should be strengthened as an integrative discipline with a deep-rooted tradition in shaping and preserving nature.


For this first conference on Topology, in German, we enjoyed multifarious lectures by Mario Broggi,  Annemarie Bucher, Gion A. Caminada, Erik de Jong, Aita Flury, Christophe, Girot, Stefan Körner, Norbert Kühn, Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani, Raimund Rodewald, Lothar Schäfer, Joseph Schwartz, Michael Seiler, Antje Stokman, Wulf Tessin and Jörg Zimmermann, as well as discussions with a very interested and involved public.
