Magazine Description

In this issue

Over the past few months, our gratitude and the media’s attention and rightly so, has been on focused on the frontline medical workers who are saving lives while putting their own lives at risk during this global pandemic. However, a somewhat unforgotten group or unsung heroes if you like, has been our children. These little human’s have adapted to a whole new way of life without fully understanding why, their once daily ritual of playing in the park, seeing friends and going to school has been taken away from them without any warning. Our veteran Landscape contributor Geoff Sanderson pens a reflective piece in this issue touching on the reasons why we, as landscape architects and urban planners, got into the business in the first place and when you consider it through the eyes of a child, it’s pretty simple! Laila Alawneh of pandemic article, gives a European perspective on designing during a pandemic and how smart urban planning and ‘smart cities’ such as Abu Dhabi in the UAE can become role models for other cities around the world to take a quality of life first approach to city planning and ensure they are better equipped to deal with future global pandemics. We also feature some of the world’s most interesting design projects including Shenzhen Terraces in China and in Baotou City, the Baotou Vanke Central Park, which was transformed from a former wasteland into a lush landscape with a freshwater lake, picturesque hills, meadows and gardens. A public square that has reinvented parts of the Kremlin wall in Kolomna, a small Russian town three hours away from Moscow is featured on page 26.
