- Abstract in English : I am working in a team with staff members from teacher-training
colleges and universities in Scandinavia on a Nordic Research Programme to
develop teaching methods which can inspire students to see, understand and
value qualities in their own culture. The main goal of this programme is to
establish a one-year post-graduate course in Nordic Culture Pedagogy.
In the same way that town planners and architects have developed guidelines,
based on genius loci, for new buildings, our Research Programme aims also
to publish a handbook entitled "Landscape Design in a Regional Context".
Landscape architects need to be made more aware of their regional landscape heritage
and be encouraged to enhance rather than erode a region's "spirit of
place" through their planning and detail design.
