Peter Latz (born 1939) is a German landscape architect and a professor for landscape architecture at the Technical University of Munich. He is best known for his emphasis on reclamation and conversion of former industrialized landscapes. Retired today, he was an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and was also a visiting professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
Latz once noted in a foreword for the book Visionary Gardens by Ernst Cramer that the overall of landscape architecture could be applied in abstract rules. "The beauty of nature lies within the essence and effect of plants and materials."
Peter Latz was born in Darmstadt and grew up in the Saarland as the son of Heinrich Latz, a German architect. After graduating from high-school he studied landscape architecture at the Technical University in Munich, and after taking his diploma in 1964, he joined the four year post-graduate education in town planning at the Institute of Urban Development and Regional Planning at the RWTH Aachen.
Peter Latz and his wife, Anneliese, founded their landscape architecture office in Aachen and in 1968 in Saarbrücken under the name Latz + Partner. Another firm for urban planning, system planning and landscape planning was set up and run between 1970 and 1976 in cooperation with fellow architect Conny Schmitz. Latz continues to practice landscape architecture and town planning, working with groups of architects, sociologists, and economists.
Latz started teaching in 1968 as a lecturer at the Limburgse Akademie voor Bouwkunst (Limburg Academy of Architecture) in Maastricht. He became a full-time professor for landscape architecture at the Gesamthochschule Kassel in 1973 and was appointed as a professor at the Landscape Architecture and Landscape Planning Department at the Technical University of Munich in 1983 where he retired in 2008.
Among his best known projects is the Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord in the Ruhr region of Germany. The site of 230 hectares was formerly a very large steel mill. When it became derelict, Latz + Partner, the firm was commissioned to design the park after winning an international design competition with the master plan for the whole site in 1991. They decided to keep the main structures and to incorporate them into a postmodern landscape design. A series of gardens were planted within and around the ruins with the use of the traditional horticulture. Clipped hedges, knot gardens, parterres, bosquets and rose gardens had created a juxtaposition between this formal garden that is situated within a post-industrial site. Duisburg-Nord was a successful landscape garden because Latz had altered the relationship that humans had with the existing site. Because of this project Peter Latz is considered to be, along with American landscape architect Richard Haag, one of the international pioneers for the reclamation and conversion of former industrialized landscapes.
Peter Latz and Partners specialize in a contemporary, intelligent use of alternative technologies and the regeneration of industrial wastelands. They are renowned landscape architects who have worked with luminaries as important as Norman Foster among oth

Use the search options below to find help for your native plant needs or click here to add your business to the directory. Associates are providers of native plant services who offer Wildflower Center members a discount on merchandise or services. To qualify, at least 50% of an Associate's projects or inventory must use native plants.
Note: This feature does not correspond to device orientation. Opening the soft keyboard on many devices in portrait orientation will cause the viewport to become wider than it is tall, thereby causing the browser to use landscape styles instead of portrait.
This example has exactly the same code as the previous example: it has three boxes in the HTML, and uses the orientation media feature to switch between a row layout (in landscape) and a column layout (in portrait).
Genealogical classification of the spatial extent on the basis of different degrees of ecological density (thus, different degrees of projected water-sensitivity) through the three (3) landscape ecological units (patches, corridors, matrices).
This works fine on PCL6, but, when tested on PCL5, I noticed that LONG_EDGE and SHORT_EDGE rules are simple ignored. And that in both cases the job is sent as LONG_EDGE. This would not be a problem, except that Java AWT printing API resolves landscape printing by turning all pages 90º anti-clockwise causing the impression that it was printed on SHORT_EDGE mode.
Obs: I was able to print correctly with both configuration, SHORT_EDGE and LONG_EDGE, in portrait and in landscape, by using the SWT API. But I'm not able to convert the jasper printing request in a SWT compatible printing request.
Find a way to, when the page is in landscape mode, invert LONG_EDGE and SHORT_EDGE commands. Observe that for this one I would be obligated to correct the problem in which both are treated as LONG_EDGE requests.
Detail isn't important here as this is your zoomed out view showing a big picture of the system landscape. The focus should be on people (actors, roles, personas, etc) and software systems rather than technologies, protocols and other low-level details. It's the sort of diagram that you could show to non-technical people.
My background is in architecture and my research focuses on the urban design and city scales. My primary research domain is urban morphology, the study of urban form, through analytical approaches using spatial and empirical data. I am an expert in space syntax methodologies, having spent seven years in the UCL Space Syntax Laboratory for my doctoral and post-doctoral research, funded by EPSRC. I conduct research on sustainable urban transformations, focusing on urban streets and sidewalks, street liveability, placemaking and urban regeneration, temporary cities, the architecture of the ordinary, historical urban landscapes and sustainable urban heritage. I have presented my work in over a dozen conferences as well as in prestigious public venues such as the Royal Academy of Arts. In 2017, under the patronage of UNESCO, I led the organisation of HUL Forum, an international networking initiative on the UNESCO Historic Urban Landscape approach.
Based on the theory of space syntax, this study quantitatively analyzes the landscape space of Baosteel Zhanjiang Steel Co. Ltd., which is constrained by epidemic preventive measures and steel plant safety production requirements in the post-epidemic age. Space syntax has the benefits of decreasing research expenses, boosting analytical efficiency, assessing space use efficiency, minimizing environmental interference, and addressing epidemic prevention demands.
Baosteel Zhanjiang Steel Co. Ltd. was founded in 2012 and is located on Donghai Island. Environmental rectification has become a serious problem for many big industrial units at now, owing to China's carbon neutrality legislation. In this setting, Zhanjiang steel plant has developed a renovation plan to establish a 10-min traffic circle that is both efficient and environmentally friendly. The author and design team were involved in this renovation project in 2021, which required rethinking the relationship between people and space and better landscape utilization. With a restricted budget, they need to investigate a method for efficiently completing quantitative space evaluations, in order to guide the identification and renovation of key spaces.
Based on the aforementioned analysis, it can be concluded that the eastern portion of Weft 3 Road is important in various traffic situations, is close to the steel factory's main entrance, has convenient transportation, a broad field of vision, and a tidy environment, all of which are suitable for the construction of a factory facade. Additionally, an activity area can be built to exhibit the traits of corporate culture and green production in combination with the surrounding environment in order to meet the standards of the carbon neutral policy . In terms of design details, the pavement is mostly comprised of square stone slices, pebbles, and steel in the details. Steel gabions are mostly utilized as seats, with some landscape structures added to the site to demonstrate the company's development process. They are mainly made of rust plates and weathering steel plates. In Fig. 15, various material textures can be used to highlight the combination of an industrial theme and environmental concerns . 781b155fdc
