Towards A Sustainable Community-Supported Green Space System For Budapest, Kristin Faurest 2010 Budapest Corvinus University, Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Department of Garden and Open Space Design

Towards A Sustainable Community-Supported Green Space System For Budapest, Kristin Faurest

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The idea of social justice as being intrinsic to landscape architecture can be traced back to Frederick Law Olmsted, who perceived urban parks as sites of egalitarian mingling of the classes, and fresh air and green space as a basic human right. Olmsted’s ideas were radical for his time; in the 21st century, in an increasingly urbanized world with a growing rich-poor gap, they are nothing short of urgent. The presence of accessible, safe, quality green space offers people the opportunity for active recreation, for enjoying clean air in an oasis far from city noise and traffic, and for ...


From Agronomy To Landscape & Greenway Planning, Julius Gyula Fábos Ph.D., FASLA 2010 Professor Emeritus, University of Massachusetts Amherst, MA, USA

From Agronomy To Landscape & Greenway Planning, Julius Gyula Fábos Ph.D., Fasla

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

This paper describes the evolution of my professional career, which parallels the evolution of landscape and greenway planning in the United States and indeed around the world. But prior to the describing this evolution, I felt the need to describe my roots, which led me to become both, a landscape and a greenway planner.

Naturally one can become a planner from any profession, any field. Yet, I felt fortunate to come to it from agronomy, which introduced me well to the “living environment”. As landscape architects we have always modified all planning implementation which may be minor or major changes ...


Towards Landscape Integrity: The Integration Of Ecological And Social Frameworks In Open Space Planning, Lindsay Ex, Carlos Licon 2010 Utah State University, Department of Landscape Architecture

Towards Landscape Integrity: The Integration Of Ecological And Social Frameworks In Open Space Planning, Lindsay Ex, Carlos Licon

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

A dichotomy of community versus conservation has long been present in society (Agrawal and Gibson 1999). This dichotomy suggests communities and ecological systems function without dependency on each other. Open space planning efforts have reinforced this dichotomy, as they typically focus on either socially- or ecologically-based frameworks (Maruani and Amit-Cohen 2007).

This study examines the trend of incorporating both social and ecological frameworks into one open space plan. The research is exploratory, attempting to identify best practices and larger concepts related to integrated open space planning in the context of Hellmund and Smith’s “landscape integrity,” where healthy social and ...


Landscape Transformation At Tourist Resorts Around Lake Balaton, Adrienn Egyed, Zsuzsanna Mikházi 2010 Corvinus University of Budapest, Department of Landscape Planning and Regional Development

Landscape Transformation At Tourist Resorts Around Lake Balaton, Adrienn Egyed, Zsuzsanna Mikházi

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

While a hundred years ago the villages disposed mainly the same functions (working and living functions) for the inhabitants, by now the villages transformed and can offer different functions for the inhabitants and tourists as well. Some of them offer work possibilities or have excellent location for being a living place. Some of them have values that are attractive enough for people for a while, they became a holiday resort. In this essay we examine the landscape transformation of this kind of villages.

Applying Urban Planning Solutions In Order To Improve Suburban Greenway Systems, Brigitta Dublinszki-Boda

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenway system elements lying on the outskirts of settlements may have different functions. According to their function, they may differ considerably in their layout, type of vegetation and plant structure.

In this research, I examined that in urban plans, by which solutions and how efficiently the ecologically significant characteristics of greenways are managed. The subjects of the research were 2 settlements (Túrkeve and Szigetmonostor) with different urban planning projects from the aspect of greenways.

Visibility Assessment Of The Perenye Windpark Near The Kőszegi Mountain In Hungary, Dóra Drexler, Ágnes Sallay, Sándor Jombach

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The visibility assessment of the Perenye Windpark was commissioned in 2009 by the West Transdanubian Authority for Environmental Protection. The plans of the windpark contained 11 turbines situated in an arable area near the small village of Perenye, south of the scenic Kőszegi Mountain and the Írottkő Nature Park. The height of the planned turbines was 179 meters (160 meters tower plus 19 meters rotor height). Ten of them were planned to have 2 MW energy output and one, which was offered by the investors to the local government, 850 kW.

The main reason for the visibility assessment was the ...


Concept Of The Green Spaces System – Belgrade Case Study, Jasminka Cvejic, Anica Teofilovic 2010 Belgrade University, Faculty of Forestry, Department of landscape architecture and Horticulture, Serbia,

Concept Of The Green Spaces System – Belgrade Case Study, Jasminka Cvejic, Anica Teofilovic

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Contemporary approach to urban development, founded on sustainable development principles, is counting on urban green spaces system as one of the most significant city infrastructure. The term implies integration of multifunctional open spaces – various types of green spaces, water courses and open rural areas, distributed in such a way to contribute to improvement of life and working conditions in the city, to protection of biodiversities of urban sites and to the attractiveness of city vista (Teofilović, Cvejić, et al.; 2009).

The city of Belgrade is the capital of the Republic of Serbia, situated in South-East Europe in Balkan peninsula. According ...


Frederick Law Olmsted’S Public Parks, Parkways And Their Influence On The Continent, Luca Csepely-Knorr 2010 Corvinus University of Budapest, Department of Garden and Open Space Design

Frederick Law Olmsted’S Public Parks, Parkways And Their Influence On The Continent, Luca Csepely-Knorr

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The connections between European and American park design have been the subject of a considerable body of research (e.g. Bowe, 1995). However, relatively little has been written on the extent to which European public parks have exerted an influence on the development of American urban green spaces, and the reciprocal effect of these open spaces on European park design.

The main goal of this paper is to examine how Frederick Law Olmsted’s European travels influenced his planning concepts, what he considered as his precedents, and how he put these in practical uses. Adopting a continental point of view ...


Greenway Development Possibilities In Hungray; Flood Protection Banks And Abandoned Railway Lines In Greenway Development, Attila Csemez 2010 Corvinus University of Budapest, Department of Landscape Planning and Regional Development

Greenway Development Possibilities In Hungray; Flood Protection Banks And Abandoned Railway Lines In Greenway Development, Attila Csemez

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenways, as their name suggests, are linear elements. The essence of a greenway is that it connects and separates. A greenway system means a continuous, unbroken connection of green spaces. In Hungary the greenway system could become complete if existing and proposed greenways could be connected at the following locations:

⎯ Along the Danube and Tisza flood prevention banks

⎯ Along main routes

⎯ On both sides of the rivers and smaller streams

⎯ On the edges of settlements

A greenway system would provide ecological harmony and a determining landscape structure for the Carpathian basin, as well as strengthen its visual and landscape aesthetic ...


Is The French View Of Greenways Avant-Garde Or Déjà-Vu?, Laure Cormier, Monique Toublanc, Jacques Baudry 2010 PhD student UP Landscape, AGROCAMPUS OUEST, centre d’Angers, Institut national d’horticulture et de paysage, France

Is The French View Of Greenways Avant-Garde Or Déjà-Vu?, Laure Cormier, Monique Toublanc, Jacques Baudry

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

“Greenway” has become trendy in the French planners’ vocabulary. Indeed, this term has many meanings, related to both the environmental and social characteristics of a territory. It carries many positive cultural values. There are not one but several types of greenways in according to specific area (urban, peri-urban, and rural) with different objectives (recreation, nature conservation, human well being). Nowadays, the French term for greenways is “trame verte”. This expression is a planning concept dealing mostly with private land.

The objective of the paper is threefold. First, we shall look at the changes in the content of “greenways” in this ...

Western Sydney Parklands: Creating Coherency From Diversity In A Greenway Corridor, Linda Corkery, Catherine Evans

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The Western Sydney Parklands (WSP) is a significant greenway corridor of some 5280 ha, extending 27 km from north to south, located 35 km west of the Sydney CBD. It is a corridor replete with opportunities, but also presenting many challenges to its future development and ongoing management, in particular, balancing the public’s interest to gain access to the corridor for recreation with broader conservation concerns to enhance its ecological integrity. This paper charts the evolution of the WSP throughout its history, and explores how the WSP in combination with the M7 motorway has evolved since 1968, focusing on ...


A Sustainability Evaluation And Dynamic Modeling Tool For Landscape And Urban Planning Policy Scenarios, Chingwen Cheng, Timothy O. Randhir 2010 Univ. of Massachusetts Amherst, Dept. of Landscape Arch. and Regional Planning

A Sustainability Evaluation And Dynamic Modeling Tool For Landscape And Urban Planning Policy Scenarios, Chingwen Cheng, Timothy O. Randhir

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Incorporating sustainability principles into urban development is often complex involving strong interaction between ecosystem components and development goals. As identified in the Brundtland Commissions report (UN, 1987), sustainability has gained much attention in planning aimed at balancing current needs without depleting resources and ecological services available for future generations. While the decision-making process is embedded in a social framework, political sustainability depends on collective decisions and citizens’ preferences related to public policies (Munda, 2006; Webster, 1998). In recent decade, the sustainability concept has been adopted in landscape and urban planning. Specific approaches include assessing abiotic, biotic, and cultural (ABC) resources ...


Landscape Painting Adding A Cultural Value To The Dutch Countryside, Ernst J. Bos 2010 LEI Wageningen University and Research Centre, the Netherlands

Landscape Painting Adding A Cultural Value To The Dutch Countryside, Ernst J. Bos

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In this article it is argued that cultural values should be included in policy making on the Dutch countryside. Since the seventeenth century the Dutch landscape had been a valued subject for art painters. This inheritance provides our rural areas a unique cultural value. The focus of this article is the region surrounding The Hague, where painters from the so-called Hague School had brought a large number of sites to their canvases. This group of painters was mainly active in the second half of the nineteenth century. For this study, various sites have been located that had been painted by ...


The Planning Principles Of Standing Waters’ Shore Zones Demonstrated By The Example Of Velence-Lake, Zsombor Boromisza 2010 Corvinus University of Budapest, Department of Landscape Preservation and Reclamation

The Planning Principles Of Standing Waters’ Shore Zones Demonstrated By The Example Of Velence-Lake, Zsombor Boromisza

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The importance of investigating shore zones is justified, on one hand, by the numerous functions the land zones have (that of bio filter, preserving the assortment of species, in addition to being habitat, ecological network’s unit, as well as destination and attracting factor for recreational and tourism opportunities etc.). On the other hand, however, many interests are crossing as to shore zones, the increased utilization’s demands may – in many cases – limit or cease the above mentioned functions, e.g. as a result of regulating the water level, the shore, the water-course or the built-in shore zone . Having in ...


A Strategy For Integrating Public Art Into Greenway Planning: A Look At The Design Competitions For The Canalside Bike Path In Turners Falls, Massachusetts, Annaliese Bischoff 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst, Department of Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning

A Strategy For Integrating Public Art Into Greenway Planning: A Look At The Design Competitions For The Canalside Bike Path In Turners Falls, Massachusetts, Annaliese Bischoff

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Too often the important aspect of art fails to be included into the planning for the linear corridors of greenways. With a focus on the needed work to create the physical corridor itself and make it a reality, the effort to include public art into the process often does not seem essential. Efforts to safeguard ecological networks are often readily recognized as an important integral part of the greenway planning process, where the inclusion of art is often considered to be nonessential. However, several greenway researchers (Lewis, 1964), (Dawson ,1994) speak to the value of including cultural factors in greenway ...

Trends Of Landscape Architecture In Hungary In The ‘70s, Eszter Karlócainé Bakay

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The history of landscape architecture in the seventies is part of a larger topic which covers the history of Hungarian landscape architecture from the 50-s to the end of Socialist era. The strong political pressure which was so typical in all fields of life in these periods, was determining in landscape architecture as well.

The era has not been researched yet, since it hasn’t been enough long ago to be considered as a history. The parks built at this time are disappearing due to park renovations, alterations or functional changes. These works are not protected yet; the officials of ...


Ecological Networks: From Regional To Metropolitan Strategies. The Northern Region Of Portugal And Oporto Metropolitan Area, Teresa Andresen 2010 CIBIO - University of Porto, Portugal

Ecological Networks: From Regional To Metropolitan Strategies. The Northern Region Of Portugal And Oporto Metropolitan Area, Teresa Andresen

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Planning for change across landscape scales in Northern Portugal through the definition of ecological networks has proved to be a challenging exercise. The outputs produced between 2004 and 2009 by CIBIO, a research unit at the University of Porto, demonstrate the complementarities of landscape planning at the regional and metropolitan scales and between regional ecological networks for environmental protection and a metropolitan network of parks.

Through the five years of research, we were moved by the idea of providing solutions for better living in the ‘rural-urban compact’ where the Porto Metropolitan Area is embedded. Gutman (2007, pp. 385) defends that ...

'Al-Mouled' As A Cultural Greenway: A New Developing Tool In The Egyptian Context, Hossam Fathy Ahmed, M.S.C. Hoda Salah Ismail

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Egypt’s heritage is of worldwide interest and importance due to its continuity over a period of more than five thousand years. It encompasses various aspects of human civilization and represents a cultural as well as a natural heritage of national and international value. This wealth of archaeological sites, architecture, arts and folklore reflects the many stages of Egypt’s rich past, giving it the rich diversity that we see now. But, unfortunately, this context is deteriorating due to massive development trends, unplanned urban expansion, unclear planning strategies, lack of awareness of importance of landscape planning in conserving this context ...
