IFLA APR Conference – Incheon, South Korea Sep 1-4

The theme for the IFLA APR Conference is ‘Hybrid & Convergence of City and Landscape Architecture.’ By doing so, we are to discuss a new paradigm facing the landscape architecture in the 21st century ‘Knowledge-Information and Creative Society’ and seek for insightful approaches to practice the visions.

A city we are living in today is ushering in the era of urban regeneration in the new framework of urbanization in the globalized world: high urbanization ratio, high conversion into mega cities, networked cities and urban sustainability. We believe that at the IFLA APR Congress to be held as a part of Incheon ‘Global Fair · Festival 2009 Incheon,’ you will have precious opportunities to see and explore yourself the work sites in Korea that are to map out a new relationship between urban and landscape architecture , and to contribute to urban competitiveness through convergence of city and landscape architecture.

Chelsea Flower Show award for Daily Telegraph heralds new age of modernism – Telegraph.co.uk

Telegraph reports

“The garden designed by Swedish landscape architect Ulf Nordfjell was praised for managing to merge clean, crisp Scandinavian lines with pretty English elements.

The “iconic modern garden” is expected to set a trend for more minimalist designs in gardens around Britain and launch a global career for Mr Nordfjell.”
