Our Topics

The intensive use and climatic changes of urban and landscape spaces are placing ever-increasing demands on the design of the environment.

Parks and gardens, streets, squares and promenades shape the image of a city. They organize social life, encounters and recreation.

To preserve the beauty and diversity of natural landscapes, to develop cultural landscapes with concepts and concrete projects - that is the goal of landscape planning work.

Legal and business management issues are becoming increasingly important in projects and planning offices.

Landscape architects operate in a demanding work environment with complex professional requirements. The bdla offers support.

Competitions are an important means of strengthening building culture and innovations in practice. To this end, the bdla has been awarding the German Landscape Architecture Prize for over 25 years.

The European and international dimension has also become a noticeable factor in landscape architecture.
