Aims of the course:The aim of the course is to familiarize students with methods and techniques of development and current state of the landscape at a particular time and space. The main emphasis is placed on evaluation and diagnosis of the landscape, identifying its potential and limits, and building a territory information system. The course emphasis is placed on analysis, synthesis and evaluation of the landscape. Students will learn research methods and practices for the needs of the landscape plan.
Course contents:
1.The course is based on present European and Czech legislation and international conventions (i.e. building act, EIA act, ESPOO convention etc.). Principles of functional and spatial structure of a territory, limits of a territorial land use, buffer zones designing, typology and placing of buildings are characterised. Urbanisation and rural settlements are understood in their agroecological and sociological aspects. The following important factors of territorial planning are described: natural, industrial, agricultural, transport, defence, demographic, sociological and cultural. Territorial systems of ecological stability are understood as the basis of landscape planning. EIA is mainly orientated on farm animal stables, processing of agricultural products and foodstuffs production. In a seminar students prepare a simple land-use plan of a territory including territorial system of ecological stability. EIA of a selected activity includes multicriterial analysis of identified impacts. (allowance 0/0)
