Berlin's open spaces can now be experienced with the online portal "ParcView.de"
bdla presents landscape architecture in a manner that is emotionally attractive, spatially positioned and knowledgeable - for your desktop and as a mobile web app
The portal www.ParcView.de is now available on the internet, the first element in the Federation of German Landscape Architect's (bdla) innovative online strategy to experience Berlin's cultural landscape. On the start page, the 360° swivelling panorama of the capital city, infused with "green", provides an eventful and informative view of the landscaped architecture. As an intuitive entrance to the portal, it awakens the appetite for diverse encounters with the designed outdoor areas in the metropolis.
The portal "ParcView" addressed the topic landscape architecture and its diverse references to Berlin art, cultural goods and cultural institutions. "The urban cultural landscape is especially pronounced in Berlin and very dynamic. The cultural and tourist-related potential produced by this interaction has been insufficiently exploited until now," is how Christof Luz, member of the executive board, summarizes the bdla's motivation to develop "ParcView".

We had a great conference in Florence last week. Desiree Martinez, Martha Fajardo and I presented papers, and at the end of the conference, we agreed on this declaration, so now the ILC is back on track. There was so much support for the idea. The ADG of UNESCO was heard to say, "well, now this is serious". The UN agencies will work with UNESCO to examine the proposal. It is great news.
What we need to do is get 5,000 signatures on the change.org website for the ILC.
As soon as I have the IFLA International Landscape Convention document changed, I will send that to you for you to collect hard copies of signatures, meanwhile please encourage your contacts to sign the petition
