    Towards an instrument for designcritique in landscape architecture,

    Society demands solutions to design problems in urban and rural planning, that are based on logic, and trains of thought that can be put into words. This in order to support discussion, debate and criticism. Central purpose of this study is to develop an instrument for designcritique in landscape architecture. To judge contemporary professional practice a 'triptych' of three types of landscape architecture has constructed. They are called the traditional, the modern and the postmodern approach. Traditional landscape architecture is an art- and-craft-based approach. In modern landscape architecture landscape is seen as an object to be analysed scientifically. Post-modern landscape architecture deals with participation of the population. The task of the late designer is to get the user emotionally involved in ,the product through the designproces. With this instrument it is possible to become aware of what motivates the individual designer in landscape architecture.
