Perceptions Of The “New Urban Greenways” In The Pearl River Delta, China, Zheng Liu 2019 KU Leuven, Department of Architecture

Perceptions Of The “New Urban Greenways” In The Pearl River Delta, China, Zheng Liu

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The Pearl River Delta (PRD) greenways are the first regional greenway network in China, which has been seen as the pilot greenway project to the other provinces and cities. The PRD greenways also resulted in continuous debates on their forms and functions. Some researchers argue that the PRD greenways show great value in promoting economic development and urban-rural integration, while some criticize that the PRD greenways have accomplished little ecological benefits that were planned in the early stages. However, most of the debates exist among key actors or researchers, while public perception of greenways is overlooked. Public perception could not ...


"City In The Park,” Greenway Network Concept Of High-Density Cities: Adaptation Of Singapore Park Connector Network In Chinese Cities, Guifang Wang, Huawei Li, Yang Yang, Sándor Jombach, Guohang Tian 2019 Szent István University, Faculty of Landscape Architecture and Urbanism, Department of Landscape Planning and Regional Development

"City In The Park,” Greenway Network Concept Of High-Density Cities: Adaptation Of Singapore Park Connector Network In Chinese Cities, Guifang Wang, Huawei Li, Yang Yang, Sándor Jombach, Guohang Tian

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

This paper uses the “Park Connector Network” (PCN) as a model, to analyze Singapore’s experience and to cope with the dramatic increase in population and urbanization, and then to apply this experience to Chinese high-density cities. The research goal is to provide guidance for the adaptation of “City in the Park” in China and the construction of high-density urban green space systems. The concept of “City in the Park” that was born in 2018 in China can be related directly to the “Park Connector Network” model.


Challenges Of Metropolitan Scale Green Infrastructure: The Sydney Green Grid, Catherine B. Evans 2019 Faculty of the Built Environment, UNSW

Challenges Of Metropolitan Scale Green Infrastructure: The Sydney Green Grid, Catherine B. Evans

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In 2017, the Government Architect of New South Wales launched a draft policy known as Greener Places (Government Architect NSW 2017a). The new policy is underpinned by the Sydney Green Grid (SGG), an initiative pitched as transformative in its power to promote sustainable development, improve connectivity and enhance green infrastructure (GI) networks across the metropolitan region and the state (Government Architect NSW 2017b). How successful will the SGG be in delivering “greener places” for urban areas across the state?

This paper exams the claims of the transformative power of the SGG with a focus on two related objectives. First, because ...


Greenway Planning Of Guangdong Province, Zhou Lu, Bing Wu, Xiaoguang Liu, Yuanxiang Wu 2019 Harbin Institute of Technology, School of Architecture, Dept. of Landscape

Greenway Planning Of Guangdong Province, Zhou Lu, Bing Wu, Xiaoguang Liu, Yuanxiang Wu

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Guangdong Province is located in the southernmost region of mainland China with a total area of 180,000 square kilometers. The GDP ranks first in China, and the economic aggregate accounts for 1/8 of China’s total. As the economic development continues, the fragmentation of ecological land is becoming more dangerous. To solve this problem, the local government organized the master planning of environmental protection. The provincial greenway planning (also called ecological corridor) proposed in this paper is an essential part of it. The total length of planned greenways in Guangdong Province is 2,836 kilometers, and its primary ...

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning is held every three years to bring together experts who are influencing landscape planning, policy making and greenway planning from the local to international level. It is intended to highlight recent trends and expand the literature about landscape and greenway planning. The aim is to explore how landscape architects and planners from different countries have approached greenway planning and to understand how greenways have been tailored to each county’s unique geographical, cultural, and political circumstances. The theme for the 2019 conference, Urban Greenway Planning: Adapting to Expanding and Contracting Cities, explores ...


Greenways For Climate Adaptation: Avoiding The ‘Green Paradox’ While Improving Urban Resiliency, Jacobien F. Kuiper, Elisabeth Hamin Infield 2019 University of Massachusetts Amherst, Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning

Greenways For Climate Adaptation: Avoiding The ‘Green Paradox’ While Improving Urban Resiliency, Jacobien F. Kuiper, Elisabeth Hamin Infield

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenway planning and design is an important approach to climate adaptation in urban areas. In this paper we bring together literature on green gentrification, climate adaptation, and equity in an early exploration of equity issues specific to urban greenways for climate adaptation (‘adaptation-greenways’). Similar to environmental risks and green space access, impacts of climate change are distributed unevenly across urban space. Climate-vulnerable communities are often minority- and lower-income neighborhoods. Greenways can redress existing inequities (‘pre-equity issues’) by providing green space access and climate adaptation benefits in vulnerable communities. Recent projects demonstrate that greenways, while redressing existing inequities, can introduce new ...


Greenness Indicator For Spatial And Settlement Planning Based On Ndvi And Lai Indicators, Laszlo Kollányi, Klaudia Máté, Viola Prohászka, Edina D. Fóris, Ágnes Sallay 2019 Szent István University, Department of Landscape Planning and Regional Development

Greenness Indicator For Spatial And Settlement Planning Based On Ndvi And Lai Indicators, Laszlo Kollányi, Klaudia Máté, Viola Prohászka, Edina D. Fóris, Ágnes Sallay

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In the international practice of green infrastructure research, many indicators have been developed to measure the social functions, naturalness, the role of the urban climate, interconnection, networking, multifunctionality, and ecosystem services. In 2007, an indicator of biological activity value (BA) was introduced into the Hungarian town planning practice and legislation, which shows the intensity of green areas in areas to be built and is the basis for counting land use changes of settlements. However, the actual biomass, which can be measured by remote sensing devices, has not yet been considered in determining the indicator values. The main purpose of this ...


‘Brown’ Is The New ‘Green’: Post-Industrial Sites As Potential In The Development Of The Green Infrastructure On The Riverfront Of Budapest, Hungary, Anna Adorjan, Anna Pecze, Kinga Szilágyi 2019 Szent István University Doctoral School of Landscape Architecture and Landscape Ecology

‘Brown’ Is The New ‘Green’: Post-Industrial Sites As Potential In The Development Of The Green Infrastructure On The Riverfront Of Budapest, Hungary, Anna Adorjan, Anna Pecze, Kinga Szilágyi

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In Budapest, Hungary and all-around Europe in the capital cities, the sight of degraded, industrial landscapes in urban areas became usual during the last decades, due to the unexpected growth of cities. In the last 30 years, many sites have gained new functions and have been reused for different purposes, but still, huge areas remained unused and presumably polluted. According to my hypothesis the unutilized areas – especially in the riverside area - could potentially become the part of a new green infrastructure element, which could make the green infrastructure system of Budapest more complete, usable and ecologically valuable.

For this paper ...

Greenway Exploration In The Satellite Jungle: Discovery Of Urban And Rural Green Network With Satellite Image Analysis In Hungary, Sándor Jombach, Huawei Li, Guifang Wang, István Valánszki, Krisztina F. Kovács

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Over the last few decades of growing data production in the field of remote sensing and GIS, we have experienced a rapid development of methods and tools in green network analysis. A series of journal articles, methodological and technical guidelines describe how to map green system based on aerial photography and satellite imagery. Many studies stress that green networks have a climatic conditioning role and outstanding ecological significance in landscapes. Environmental agreements and sustainability aspects emphasize the need for mapping and managing green infrastructure in urban and rural landscapes. The usual question is: What are the elements of green infrastructure ...


Palermo, Italy: The Coast Road, Monica Manfredi 2019 Politecnico di Milano, Department of Architecture and Urban Studies

Palermo, Italy: The Coast Road, Monica Manfredi

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

This paper proposes a re-reading of the work of Roberto Collovà dedicated to Palermo and its coastline. It interprets, in a perspective paper, the arguments contained in his research as suggestions for the construction of landscape research to condition, through their appearance, a new way to see and interpret places and their potential.

Rereading his studies, his drawings and his observations suggests the construction of a method of recognition of the existence of a landscape, in this case of a greenway and its potential, within an existing urban fabric. The historical center, the fragments of urban spaces, and the fragments ...

Identifying And Classifying, Quantifying And Visualizing Green Infrastructure Via Urban Transects In Rome, Italy And Sydney, Australia, Simon J. Kilbane, Daniele La Rosa

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Green Infrastructure is increasingly recognised as an approach to deliver a wide-ranging set of ecosystem services in cities and to operationalize concepts of urban resilience through the better delivery of urban planning, water sensitive urban design and a broad diversity of open space types. This paper argues that the first step in the delivery of effective Green Infrastructure planning and hence ecosystem services is the identification, visualisation and calculus of the full spectrum of existing open space types within urban contexts. To test this idea two case study cities – Rome and Sydney – were selected for their differing geographical origins and ...

Recognizing Greenway Network For Quantifying Students Experience On Campus-Based Universities: Assessing The Campus Outdoor Spaces At San Diego State University, Mohammed Gabr, Hisham Elkadi, Claudia Trillo

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

This paper evaluates the potential of creating a green infrastructure – more specifically, an urban greenway – and its contribution the students’ campus experience, with emphasis on the outdoor university activities. To achieve best value for money – particularly in the current financial climate, with severe budget cuts constraining universities – justifying investments on campus outdoor spaces such as greenways, relies on a clear demonstration of their link to the overall success of the campus. Attempts of quantify the benefits from investments on such spaces are challenged by the scarcity of studies on the relationship between students’ experience and design (and related cost) of ...

Greenways As Indigenous Cultural Pathways: Healing Landscape And Peoples One Step At A Time In The South West Of Western Australia, Simon J. Kilbane 2019 University of Technology, Sydney

Greenways As Indigenous Cultural Pathways: Healing Landscape And Peoples One Step At A Time In The South West Of Western Australia, Simon J. Kilbane

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The South West of Western Australia (SWWA) is widely known as one of the world’s most biodiverse regions and a recognised biodiversity hotspot. However, since European colonisation approximately 200 years ago, this landscape has been cleared, fragmented and degraded at large and small scales, a problem magnified by being one of the planet’s most vulnerable locations to climate change. This region also hosts one of the world’s longest continuous cultures, the Nyungar people, who have lived in the SWWA for at least 38,000 years. However following colonisation Nyungar land management practices – that once connected the region ...

Cultural Ecosystem Services And Local Identity – A Ppgis Case Study From Budapest Metropolitan Region, István Valánszki, Sándor Jombach, Krisztina F. Kovács, Asmaa Abualhagag Ahmed, Fernando A. Mendez Garzón, Gabriella Balha

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Several studies and international conventions highlight the importance of public participation in the process of strategy building. In spite of all these initiatives, public participation methods are not common tools in the practice (especially in Central-Eastern-Europe). In the frames of our research, we applied the ppGIS (Public Participation GIS) method, a special, mostly new tool in Hungary, in order to bridge the gap between the scientific world and local citizens. The method combines community based mapping with GIS techniques. It aims to foster the integration of the public into the process of evaluation, planning, and decision making using GIS technology ...
