Description

Katrin Bohn presented their joint paper written with Dong Chu at the 9th international conference of the AESOP Sustainable Food Planning Group held at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid in Spain from the 6th to the 9th of November 2019. Researchers, practitioners, students and guests from all over Europe and further afield came together to discuss their works around the conference’s theme of Agroecological transitions confronting climate breakdown: Food planning for the post-carbon city.

Dong and Katrin’s contribution is titled ‘Food-productive urban infrastructure: Enabling agroecological transitions from an urban design perspective’.

Focussing on the intrinsic relationships between ecology, agriculture and landscape and selecting – from a variety of existing infrastructural concepts – the spatial landscape typology of the Greenway as our example, we explored a “food-productive greenway” theoretically based on our design concept of Continuous Productive Urban Landscape (CPUL). We propose a pathway to assess our contention by referring to landscape ecology criteria.
