A rich variety of projects on display at the second Landscape Odyssey exhibit in Budapest
This marks the second time that Landscape Odyssey has taken place - the first was in 2010 - but this time the exhibit was paired with the launch of this year's Landscape Architecture Europe Yearbook. It also marks the first appearance of a Hungarian landscape architecture firm in the yearbook. New Directions Landscape Architects firm - recently lauded as Hungary's Landscape Architect of the Year - was included for their innovative community-based street art and other design work in Budapest's historic Palace Quarter. The book includes 44 projects and was introduced by jury head Lisa Diedrich.
This two-day celebration of local and European landscape architecture was jointly organized by Corvinus University of Budapest's Faculty of Landscape Architecture, the Association of Hungarian Landscape Architects, the Hungarian Chamber of Architects' Landscape and Garden Design Section and the Dutch LAE Foundation. The exhibit can be viewed at Budapest's Center of Architecture (FUGA) until May 29. (http://en.fuga.org.hu/)
The original LE:NOTRE Projects were co-funded by the European Union's Socrates and Lifelong Learning Programmes.
The LE:NOTRE Institute has been established by ECLAS as foundation under Netherlands Law.
