Course: URBAN LANDSCAPE DESIGN Core Slovenian language, two semesters Scope: 90 h, of which 30 h lectures, 60 h studio Pedagogical objective: To further widen the thematic scope of design and to reinforce it methodologically and theoretically. To enhance and improve design capacities, both in terms of analytical ability and of finding solutions at the synthetic level. Lectures / seminars Contemporary comprehension of the urban landscape. Landscape of the city as a myth of the primeval nature as opposed to its socio-cultural character. Changes of the value system in urban environment and the position and the role of the landscape and open space within the new social contexts. Urban landscape design between naturalism, the denial of its position in the city and the plurality as the highest achievement in urban culture. Differences and similarities between the comprehension of the city landscape in various doctrines of urban design (Le Corbusier, Aillaud, Bofill, Krier, Koolhas et al.), environmental art (Sonfist, Heizer, Fulton et al.) and landscape architecture. Potential of landscape design to contribute towards the development of the regional identity as an important constituent of the quality of life in the society of tomorrow. Relevant aspects of integration of the urban landscape into structure of the city (in terms of dense and fragmented city concepts). Concepts and role of the urban green system. Studio Studio projects are carried out with the purpose to enhance creative search of planning solutions, especially through development of adequate alternatives. Two major problems are dealt with, possibly in connection to real life situations: landscape plan as a component of a master plan of urban areas and designs of smaller areas and objects (street, plaza, park etc.). Combined with short exercises to complement the solution search and push the elaboration of the alternatives towards more detailed design. Literature: Halprin, L.: Cities.
