Walking

Movement and action generate space and can therefore be used as a basis for design. For the landscape architectonic design process the elementary concept of movement is essential. Walking through a town, we internalize the relative positions of our spatial environment step by step in relation to our own bodies. It is a way in which we connect ourselves with our environment. We add distance and personal experience to our conception of the world. In addition to plans, sections and analysis material, the pedestrian perspective can facilitate decisions concerning the design of (urban) landscapes. At the same time this can also be a means for verifying spatial scenarios in terms of the suitability for the horizontal perspective.
