Special mention

According to data from the Landscape Convention of the European Council, landscape matters are included in energy, environmental, forestry, infrastructure, leisure, climate change, cultural and agricultural heritage topics. However, even though it isn’t included in the subjects of elementary or nursery schools, we can find landscape in the university degree that bears the same name and in some masters. This is the case of the Oslo School of Architecture and Design University, where landscape has become one of the main cornerstones of these subjects. Projects presented at the tenth edition of the Biennial (in the schools category) were finalists with special mention regarding the representative quality and the original and innovative methodological investigation in each landscape project: strategies are proposed for analysing and transforming tangled up urban areas, without forgetting how new landscapes are built, both through abstract methods and with the acceptance of concrete as a new panorama.
