News from our member BSLA/FSAP Switzerland: New ANTHOS is out!
We are pleased to inform you about the launch of the first edition of the new ‹anthos›. The yearbook of the Federation of Swiss Landscape Architects (BSLA) is a text volume, consistently in German and French, supplemented by a “Best of” landscape architecture in Switzerland.
The first edition of this new showcase for Swiss landscape architecture deals with the specific challenges that the climate crisis poses to landscape architecture and its makers in urban areas. The thematic section consists of 46 climate tips for practitioners, texts on the trees, the climate weapon, sponge city planning in Berlin, Copenhagen and Vienna, the BSLA’s position on the urban climate, statements from landscape architects on how to deal with the climate crisis and texts on climate-neutral building and planning in the Practice. A round of talks will discuss how much space and soil we are making available for the climate. In the yearbook section, 15 landscape architecture projects from the past four years, selected by an independent international jury, are presented. This “best of” Swiss landscapearchitecture forms the visually powerful second part of the yearbook.
‹Anthos›, the association magazine of the Federation of Swiss Landscape Architects (BSLA) founded in 1962, was discontinued in 2020.
On behalf of and in cooperation with the BSLA, the architecture publisher Hochparterre has converted the title into a yearbook. With other communication measures of the association, it launches the annual landscape-political theme of the BSLA. The first issue is devoted to the topic of urban climate. The second issue on radicality will appear in May 2022.
Take a look at the new yearbook here. A printable cover, more information about the book and the list of the presented landscape architecture projects can be found in the media release in the appendix.
