We have become very much aware of the fact that landscape is not only a functional or ecological system, but also the expression of ideals, the carrier of meaning. Landscapes represent a heritage in which the collective identity and memory of its population are expressed. Landscape architects, when confronted with the task of combining a cultural heritage with new functional requirements, must search for landscape form and function that represents values and ideals, both in the past and the present. But what are these values and how should they be reflected in our landscapes?
The landscape of symbols is a complex world we may not be able to grasp. An international group of distinguished speakers were invited to cast their light on the subject. They do so on the basis of their own experience and insight. Some of them look back and find historical examples, others attempt to look towards to the future. Together they create a fascinating document on a fascinating theme.
