Post-modern view of design and planning materials a with landscape design

1. Mehmet Cetin, Kastamonu University, Turkey

In the history books, cities are ‘founded’, ‘taken by storm’ and ‘razed to the ground’. They are objects, which may be owned, conquered - or planned in two dimensions. Real places are perceived and seen as landscapes, dependent on physical and mental points of view, with foregrounds and backgrounds always switching positions. Some are ephemeral; others comparatively permanent. In these plural times, the day of the singular town plan has surelypassed away. Individuals, communities and social groups wish to plan their own worlds. A new age of planning is on the horizon. Different plans will be required for different purposes. We shall see more planning, but less control. The city of the future will be an infinite series of landscapes: psychological and physical, urban and rural, flowing apart and together. They will be mapped and planned for special purposes, with the results recorded in geographical information systems (GIS), which have the power to construct and retrieve innumerable plans, images and other records. Christopher Alexander was right: a city is not a tree. It is a landscape. And also for trees, plants and infrastructure and skyscrapers , a major role in the design and planning of modern cities
