Description

I have been invited as a guest speaker at the conference "The Landscape as Union between Art and Science". Other guests were: Rainer Willmann; Anita Berrizbeitia and Pablo Pérez-Ramos (Harvard University); Sonja Dümpelmann (U Penn); Michael Lee (University of Virginia) and Günther Vogt (ETH Zurich).

Abstract of the conference:
"Many worldwide institutions have celebrated during the year 2019 the 250th anniversary of the birth of Alexander von Humboldt and the centennial of Ernst Haeckel’s death. Their contribution in the natural sciences, their cosmopolitan view and transdisciplinary approach offer an exemplary demonstration of the importance of interconnected systems; what von Humboldt called “Naturgemälde” and Haeckel defined as “Ecology” imply global connections between biotic and abiotic realms.

The PhD programme in Landscape and Environment of Sapienza University in Rome wishes to discuss the current knowledge in the areas of landscape design and environmental theories and their relationship with the original concepts and insights of these two key figures. Being researchers, philosophers, scientists, explorers and artists at the same time, their thinking attests the importance of holistic connections and of keeping together the scientific, humanistic and artistic approaches. The international conference wants to evaluate the modernity of their thoughts in our present time, and their legacy in the theory and practice of landscape design."
