Operating as a coherent unit within the context of its environ­ ment, the undertaking has the inventive capability to polish because the new center of a reworked cultivated panorama – and rep­ resent it while. The panorama layout achieves a synergy among the hot use and the preferred price of the average potentials of where. This impact stands within the culture of holistic pondering, appearing and developing that outcome­ ed from the Enlightenment. while technology and good judgment and with it the critique of judgement and the belief of cause sup­ planted creationism, the possibility of new artistic principles was once unlocked, calling for orientation and values. those are root­ ed in Romanticism. 89 In early modernism there have been the guidelines of a serial produc­ tion of good looks in either construction and panorama structure which may merely consequence from a solidarity of shape and vividness. This stance of the arts-and-crafts flow is being trans­ ferred to the current electronic age. ninety Campus der Lu Xun Kunstakademie Eine neue Kulturlandschaft In das hügelige Bergland im Osten Dalians, einer 6-Mill­ ionen-Einwohner-Stadt im Nordosten Chinas, battle der Campus der neuen Niederlassung der Lu Xun Kunstakademie in Shenyang mit Museum, Ateliers, Sportflächen und Parkanlagen einzufügen. Topografie und Potenziale der baumlosen Landschaft nahe dem Meer waren eine Herausforderung für diese Aufgabe im Rahmen eines internationalen Wettbewerbs, den Rainer Schmidt Landschaftsarchitekten + Stadtplaner in Koopera­ tion mit dem Architekturbüro Auer + Weber + Assoziierte, München, 2004 gewannen. Die natürliche Topografie wurde für die Anlage des Cam­ pus mit einem Plateau überformt. Ein schachbrettartiges Raster dient als foundation für die Einfügung von unterschiedli­ chen Volumina der Bebauung und ihrer freien Räume in die Landschaft. So entstand ein Rahmen für die Verzahnung von Landschaft und Bebauung, groß- und kleinräumlich. ninety one Die Bebauung folgt den Prinzipien des klassischen hellenistischen Städtebaus einerseits und der tradierten ­chinesischen Hofform, dem Hutong, andererseits. Das hügelige aid nimmt das Schema der Rasterstruktur auf, es entsteht aber auch ein Kontrast zwischen Natur und Besiedelung, indem Baumgruppen und Pfade die neue Landschaft im Campus-Park bestimmen. Pittoreske Ele­ mente, dem Formenkanon des englischen Landschaftsgar­ tens entnommen, brechen das Schachbrettmuster auf. Die von power Brown inspirierte scheinbare Regellosigkeit der Freiraumgestaltung ähnelt den Gestaltungsidealen chinesischer Gärten. Grüninseln, zwei Aussichtsorte, ein Amphitheater und gewundene Pfade ergeben ein maleri­ sches Bild und schaffen eine romantische Atmosphäre. Unüberwindbare Grenzgräben umgeben den Campus. Sie zitieren ein point des englischen Landschaftsgartens, „Aha“ genannt. So wird die culture einer Einfriedung durchbrochen, die in chinesischen Gärten obligatorisch ist. Der Blick ins Umland bleibt dadurch erhalten. Zugleich fließt die plants von außen in den Campus hinein. Un­ regelmäßige Baumgruppen betonen das topografische Gefälle.
