Presentation of Prof. Christophe Girot

The advent of new media such as digital video has propelled visual research and communication to previously unforeseen levels in the various design disciplines, particularly those dealing with outdoor space. As a result, landscape urbanism, landscape architecture and urban design are all benefiting tremendously from such progress. This presentation looks at the present state of landscape urbanism in Europe and identifies the factors responsible for this condition. It then assesses the potential impact of the moving image on both urban design and decision-making processes. It is of particular interest to consider to what extent such a mode of visual thinking can affect the shaping of future sites.
