Landscape is everywhere. It affects us all, even if you are not aware of it. Landscape architects create places and environments for everyday use in cities, parks, squares, streets and residential areas. They take part in the development of rural areas and land use and they take care of the environment. 

What has been the landscape architect’s intention? You find yourself before a wonderful scenery, a resting spot shuts traffic noise away?

Preface to the book Maiseman tekijät

Our environment is changing rapidly and landscape architects pave the way for the future. This means that they have several responsibilities and duties, as well. The professional ethics of landscape architects is based on a deep understanding of the needs of people as well as nature. Landscape architects are always looking for a balance between the two. All environments should be functional, beautiful and sustainable.  

For 30 years already, it has been possible to study in Finland to become a landscape architect. By fall 2019, altogether 246 landscape architects have graduated from Aalto University and its predecessor the Helsinki University of Technology. The Degree Programme in Landscape Architecture at Aalto University will be celebrating its thirtieth anniversary in October 2019. 

What kind of a landscape are we living in — today and in the future?

Aalto ARTS Books has published a book Maiseman tekijät (in Finnish).
