A BUILDING AS A GARDEN - A GARDEN AS A HOUSE

  • Viktor Filipi Mendel University in Brno, Czech Republic

Abstract

This paper discusses the issue of urban development in the near future from the perspective of garden design and landscape architecture. It is a response to the deteriorating situation related to the population growth and the human separation from nature. Attention is mainly devoted to a detail - a building. The author suggests a solution in the form of a house and a garden being combined. This paper describes the positive impacts of such a combination from the environmental, ecological, hygienic, and economic perspectives. Further, garden forms appropriate for this vision are presented. The solution is documented using a study created in cooperation of Filipi and Damec.
