Keynote IBA StadtLand – from Thuringia to a planetary perspective

IBA StadtLand – from Thuringia to a planetary perspective. Ongoing urbanization and interconnection require us to focus on the systemic relationships and material cycles within larger territories. In this context, I had the honor to speak about landscape-based regional design as a design-oriented landscape approach for future-proofing the urban-rural continuum. 

This international conference was organized by the International Building Exhibition (IBA) Thuringia and the Sino-German research project Urban Rural Assembly (URA) and part of the exhibition „Stadtland – Learning from Thuringia“ in the iconic Eiermann building in Apolda, where the IBA presents the results of its decennial project development process.
