Geography of a landscape – Landscape of geography
According to the European Landscape Convention, adopted by the European Council, “landscape” means an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors.
The basis of our research is a real area and landscape planning problem. Taking a holistic and interdisciplinary approach, which is in line with the European Landscape Convention, we have been looking for the answer to how society in a factual karst area divided by a border can explore the area’s landscape potential in order to satisfy ecological, economic and social expectations. With the presentation of a new modelling method that we have elaborated in the hopes of successful planning, our practical approach might take the issue one step further from a philosophical point of view as well.
Once and for all, (though from a distinct perspective and despite of our original aim being different) we wish to contribute to the issue by underlining the legitimacy of neodeterminist narratives that aim for a unified geography
