It’s good that the University of Greenwich has a programme in Landscape & Urbanism. The Wikipedia entry on landscape urbanism opens with the statement that ‘Landscape Urbanism is a theory of urban planning arguing that the best way to organize cities is through the design of the city’s landscape, rather than the design of its buildings‘. Personally, I find this more helpful than much of the post-structuralist jargon with which the subject is fondly explained. My next-favourite approach to understanding landscape urbanism is through looking at examples of urban development projects in which landscape principles have been ignored. There are two recent examples on the recently launched LAA Website: Edinburgh and Ebbsfleet.
