Green Design and Sustainable Architecture
The article focuses on the Landscape Architect profession and the competencies that a person must have in order to be able to conduct research and analyses of green areas, organizing the space optimally, making informed management decisions and finding economically sound solutions. A landscape architect possesses specialized knowledge and skills that are directly involved in designing and managing the green infrastructure and its various components. The importance of this profession is undoubted in the process of creating a high quality environment in the public and private spheres of our lives: the workplace, the residential areas and areas for recreation, an environment that affects everyone’s life and health. In this sense the Landscape Architect profession has social, environmental and economic significance and the specific competencies it requires must be constantly developed and upgraded. This publication aims to study the relationship and correspondence between a landscape architect’s education and the necessary competencies in practicing the Landscape Architect profession. The profession has long been recognized as having a public value and has a place in a society’s macrostructure through the political, economic and cultural systems. The profession’s future development seeks to integrate landscape architects’ specialized knowledge and skills in enhancing the technologies, ecology, economy and culture of modern cities. In constructing and managing the green infrastructure, a landscape architect must demonstrate specialized economy management competencies. These can be acquired through multidisciplinary educational approaches based on clearly formulated competencies, corresponding to competency, for a specific context and at a specific mastery level (See Woodruffe C. on the distinction between competence and competency as understood in this paper). Therefore, monitoring and managing the educational process in developing landscape architects’ competencies is carried out continuously, taking into account the working practice. This approach is an important prerequisite for landscape architects’ high quality work, which reflects on finding sustainable, ethical, environmentally friendly spatial solutions for the green infrastructure that have a high cultural value for society.
