    Keynote Speaker LAUD 2016 edition


    Green is not the only solution, but there is no solution without green. The future Green City is being built today. An important aspect of our designs in the past 15 years that has appealed to clients and governments around the world is the application of the Green City theory in the designs.

    Prof. emeritus Peter LATZ

    LATZ+PARTNER, Germany
    Special Guest LAUD Bucharest 2015


    The communication at LAUD lectures was very interesting and I have seen many people that had experience. I held a master class about post-industrial landscape architecture, it was very relaxed. I had a good time. The presentations were very good and they had a lot of information.

    Prof. Robert TREGAY

    Keynote Speaker LAUD Warsaw 2015


    LAUD is very well organized and there are interesting speakers. About the audience, the first funny thing is I don’t know anybody, and usually, if I go to a conference in England, I know a lot of the people there. It is a very interesting experience to meet new people and share ideas.

    Arch. Martí FRANCH

    Founder, Estudi Martí Franch, Spain
    Winner of the European Biennial of Landscape Architecture and Special Guest of LAUD 2014


    LAUD is a very good idea, it helps to grow culture between local practitioners because you can mirror with other people. I was positively surprised with all the projects presented from Eastern Europe I did not know about, also about the plans of the municipality in Bucharest – it looks positive to me. These examples show that it’s a growing culture.

    The project I presented drew the attention because of the amazing mission. What was amazing was that politicians decided to spend money to undo things, not build more, but to go backwards. And this is new for the discipline. Normally, most of the projects are about building new things or rebuilding. Here, we could really erase things that had been done. What caused the attention of so many people was the mission and the way we did it – we were very respectful in adding very few things.

    Keynote Speaker LAUD Bucharest 2015


    We found a very kind athmosphere at LAUD, and for us, these kinds of meetings are very interesting because they help us better the architecture of this part of understand Europe. It was great because it was so intense and we were impressed. So many interesting projects, so many great architects, it was a great conference.

    arch. Mariusz ŚCISŁO

    President of the Association of Polish Architects SARP

    I find important that this conference highlights the exceptions and things that can be inspiring, models to follow. The world does not know them, does not see them and this justifies the public’s appetite for this conference. A great benefit is also its educational role.

    Co-organizer of the Romania editions of LAUD


    LAUD conference was announced as being highly attractive in the field of landscape architecture and, through the presence of some outstanding speakers, has confirmed this appeal through the interest shown by the public and a full day of lectures and presentations, to which questions and interactions with participants were added. The field of landscape architecture at the top was covered with examples of international practice excellence. If we consider our situation, where the need for a higher quality of the communities in which we live, of green spaces and public spaces in general, well-designed and accessible is growing, we can say that LAUD came at the right time, drawing attention to the performances reached by others in the field, amid an uninterested attitude from the part of the authorities at different levels for this area. The natural and anthropic landscape must be considered as the fundamental infrastructure of the fabric of life, the continuing support of architecture and heritage essential to communities – this is the message that we are sending through LAUD to all those responsible of our state.
