Nowadays humans lost connection with nature. We live in artificial environments which affects our wellbeing and lives, making us feel trapped. We all have this subconscious, primal need to experience and adore nature around us. Now imagine that you can have your own paradise at home. Imagine creating and shaping environment in a way in which you can achieve your own landscape. That’s what landscape architects do. That’s what we do.
Landscape architecture is the study and art of designing environments which includes elements of engineering, architecture, sociology, environment and arts. It is used in streets, housing estates, apartment compounds, shopping malls, squares, gardens and across towns or cities. It enables life between the buildings, brings nature and harmony back into urban areas. It uses resources that we already possess, it can be terrain topography, present trees, rocks or ponds. When the architects look at raw landscape, they see potential and reshape it into work of art that fits into the needs of local community and environment. Landscape architecture has tremendous potential to improve quality of our lives and help fight off climate change. Let’s have a closer look into its benefits.
Benefits for society
Landscape architecture has potential to create vibrant and healthy communities, reshape cities into accessible, safe and breathtaking places. Reshaping infrastructure can enable safer and greener transport, prevent soil erosion and improve quality of air. Scientists agree that green places are improving health and wellbeing of society. Well-designed outdoor spaces will encourage people to go outside and enjoy sunlight which greatly reduces stress and improves concentration. Scientists have also proven that access to green places improves cognition development in children and has potential to reduce their obesity rate by approximately 8%. Landscape architects can also create places for sports and leisure which have direct impact on community’s health and wellbeing.
Benefits for nature
Earth’s climate is changing extremely fast and we all need to take action. It is estimated that forest loss is responsible for 8-10% of global carbon emission. However globally around 2 billion hectares of degraded land are available for restoration. It is area as big as South America. We know that nature-based solutions can provide 37% of the mitigation needed by 2030 to keep global temperature rise below 2°C. In this case landscape architecture might be one of the best solutions. Landscape architects equipped with cutting edge technology design urban areas into natural carbon sinks, they develop healthy communities that reduces their greenhouse emissions and adapt to changing climate. They design infrastructure that prevent floods or wildfires and play important role in protecting Earth’s biodiversity. In the future they can be the ones that finally reconnect humankind with nature.
