European Landscape Convention definition of „Landscape“ means an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors.


The landscape reveals layers of past relationships between people and the land. We can read this narrative through pealing away the layers and interpreting the relationship of these past resident of the land; their lifestyle, values and beliefs. We can also look at the contemporary manifestations of our current etchings on the land. Through this lens, we can contemplate the potential future relationship between the land and us.The Centre for The Future explores cultural landscapes from a variety of vantage points through intensive international, interdisciplinary workshops as well as focused research projects.
