Osnabrück’S “Green Fingers” – Adjusting Priorities To Sustain And Develop Greenways And Landscapes In A, Pascal Gehle, Dirk Manzke, Hubertus Von Dressler Jan 2016

Osnabrück’S “Green Fingers” – Adjusting Priorities To Sustain And Develop Greenways And Landscapes In A, Pascal Gehle, Dirk Manzke, Hubertus Von Dressler

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Osnabrück’s so called “Green Fingers” – eleven landscape corridors reaching from the inner city into the region – structure the regional metropolis’ urban pattern. They supply the city centre with fresh air, serve as recreational destinations for the city’s inhabitants and provide space for close to the city agriculture and forestry. First defined in 1926, the Green Fingers have since been part of various planning documents and programs. However, these open spaces have been diminished bit by bit over time. The city’s growing need for land to build on had its impact just like the development of major traffic ...


Challenges Of Establishing Green Corridors In The Areas With Agricultural Land Consolidation, Pavel Benka, Jasna Grabić, Atila Bezdan, Milica Vranešević Jan 2016

Challenges Of Establishing Green Corridors In The Areas With Agricultural Land Consolidation, Pavel Benka, Jasna Grabić, Atila Bezdan, Milica Vranešević

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Conducting land consolidation within an area where agricultural land has the largest share is of great importance. Current practice of enforcing land consolidation was focused upon achieving favorable conditions for agricultural production, simultaneously leading to negative effects related to the environment, wildlife and native species. The aim of land consolidation is achieving favorable conditions for agricultural production, which can be obtained through the grouping of properties and the formation of larger plots of proper shape. In order to accomplish these effects, barriers which might interfere with agricultural operations (e.g. forest vegetation and non-functional amelioration canals) must often be removed ...


Sustainable Management Of Urban Green Infrastructure – The Challenge Of Providing High-Quality Green In Multi-Storey Residential Construction, Christina Czachs, Christiane Brandenburg, Birgit Gantner, Julia Hupka, Doris Damyanovic, Florian Reinwald, Ulrich Morawetz Jan 2016

Sustainable Management Of Urban Green Infrastructure – The Challenge Of Providing High-Quality Green In Multi-Storey Residential Construction, Christina Czachs, Christiane Brandenburg, Birgit Gantner, Julia Hupka, Doris Damyanovic, Florian Reinwald, Ulrich Morawetz

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Vienna is known as one of the most liveable cities worldwide (Mercer, 2015), not least because of Vienna’s green infrastructure (GI). These qualities of life and the trend of urbanisation lead to strong population growth in Vienna. It is predicted that the Viennese population will grow from 1.8 million (2015) to 2 million in 2029 (MA 23, 2014); to offer living space, the creation of up to 120,000 new homes is planned until 2050 (MA 18, 2014). The growth and the resulting exploitation pressure on the (green) areas pose a major challenge for the City of Vienna ...

Greenway Planning: Recreational Corridors Within Ljubljana Urban Region, Mojca Golobič, Nadja Penko Seidl

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Regular physical activity is an important element of healthy lifestyle, which has proven positive impacts on human health (Bedimo-Rung et al., 2005, Telama et al., 2005). Due to the increasing number of sedentary jobs and increased reliance on motorized transport, leisure time physical activity is becoming more and more important in fulfilling recommended physical activity levels (Bedimo-Rung et al., 2005: 159).

Accessible green open spaces encourage physical activity. Several studies have shown that people of all age and social groups, who have access to green open space, are physically more active and consequently, healthier (Abraham et al., 2010, Ward Thompson ...

Phenomenon of the Calvaries lays mainly in their significant religious aspect, but also in the transformation of the landscape in their surroundings. They are significant dominants in the landscape and as the symbols, they are part of the historic structures representing cultural landscape of Slovakia.


Green Belt Of Brescia, Lombardy. From Resilience Strategy To Sustainable Planning In Practice., Luca Maria Francesco Fabris, Guido Granello Jan 2016

Green Belt Of Brescia, Lombardy. From Resilience Strategy To Sustainable Planning In Practice., Luca Maria Francesco Fabris, Guido Granello

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The paper focuses on the methods on which it is built the planning strategy for the ‘Parco delle Cave’ (Park of Pits) in Brescia (Lombardy, Italy). This research, begun in 2010 thanks to the insights offered by a master's degree thesis, in February 2016 led to the approval of the variation to Plan of Government of the Territory of the City of Brescia. The authors, at the time, respectively, supervisor and author of the thesis ‘Park of Pits, from protest to proposal' have gradually followed the different stages of approach to the proposed variant through a real multidisciplinary action ...


Greenway Planning And Landscape Structure; Some Theoretical Backgrounds, Martin Van Den Toorn, Albert Fekete Jan 2016

Greenway Planning And Landscape Structure; Some Theoretical Backgrounds, Martin Van Den Toorn, Albert Fekete

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In this paper we will put forward some theoretical backgrounds on greenway planning as planning and design intervention in landscape architecture. In order to analyse the theoretical context of greenway planning, we first start with a short overview of terminology. In the next step we will investigate a number of case studies on how the principles of greenway planning have been applied and how it relates to other aspects of plan making in landscape architecture. The approach of greenway planning is very much based on linear systems and networks where 'structure' plays a key role. We will put special emphasis ...


Greenway Planning; Developing A Network Methodology For Jordan, Anne A. Gharaibeh, Haneen A. Sawalqah Jan 2016

Greenway Planning; Developing A Network Methodology For Jordan, Anne A. Gharaibeh, Haneen A. Sawalqah

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenway network planning has become an acknowledged tool for allocating land for recreational purposes. Within developing countries such as Jordan, urban laws lack implementation plans and/or policies regarding green open spaces, ecological networks and greenway planning. A review of the currently effective planning policies and city mandates of Jordan reveals that the concept of preserving land for environmental and recreational purposes is addressed (Laws no: 79/15/F, 79/19/F, 79/23/F, 79/52/F, 79/58/F, 1966), yet no strategies are present to instrument land acquisition other than land subdivision laws (Law no: 12/6 ...


Artistic Wind Turbines Along Greenways: The Concept, Vendula Betakova Jan 2016

Artistic Wind Turbines Along Greenways: The Concept, Vendula Betakova

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The contemporary built and industrial landscape - we can see every day - is filled with many industrial parks, logistic areas, power plants and other enormous structures and objects which ensure a living environment for humans. Actually, these structures cause many gaps and blind spots in an otherwise green network. Furthermore, in some cases there are abandoned industrial parks consuming enormous pieces of land. The reason for this is pretty clear in this case: there is no responsible owner who should take care of it or there is no budget to cover the costs for its demolition. So what we now see ...
