Digital Landscape Architecture Conference, 2023

As in previous years, Lands Design proudly participated in the 24th Annual International Conference on Information Technologies in Landscape Architecture, the Digital Landscape Architecture (DLA) Conference. It was held at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences on their Dessau campus from May 24th to 27th. As a sponsor of the event, we had the opportunity to present two workshops about our last achievements for landscape architecture: BIM workflow and Environmental analysis of a landscape project on May 24th.

The conference started with an awe-inspiring opening lecture at the renowned Bauhaus Dessau, Dr. Barbara Steiner, the newly appointed director of the Bauhaus Foundation Dessau, illuminated the audience with her presentation titled “From the Bauhaus to The New European Bauhaus.” This captivating discourse delved into the concept of the “New European Bauhaus” and its profound role in envisioning future living spaces in harmony with the principles of the European Green Deal. The New European Bauhaus places utmost importance on the seamless fusion of aesthetics, sustainability, and vitality, epitomized by the three pillars: Beautiful, Sustainable, and Filled with Life.
