The task of landscape architecture is to define the tense relationship between man and his environment. Landscape architects plan for man and nature, act responsibly for society and the environment.
The fields of activity range from the design of our living and residential environment to the preservation and development of our natural environment, i.e. from the planning of a city park to the design of a pedestrian zone or extensive natural and cultural landscapes to complex environmental impact assessments.
