My name is Christian Vötter. I‘m 25 years of age and currently enrolled in the third se-

mester of my landscape architecture/planning degree. Many of my previous experien-

ces in my pursuit of finding the right occupation have lead to me to believe: I should find a profession I thoroughly enjoy. It is at this point that I would like to share some these

past experiences that have lead to this conclusion. After receiving my high-school di-

ploma, I completed an apprenticeship to become a bank employee followed by a year

in which I worked on a horse ranch building saddles. These very different career deci-

sions along with my love to travel to different parts of the world such as Latin America and South East Asia aspire me to become a landscape designer.

When working with landscape, I try to have the nature of the site guide me to an indivi-

dualized solution as there is nothing more disappointing then to present a stereotypical answer for a distinct question. I place great emphasis on discovering new approaches

to challenges found in landscape architecture. Nevertheless we must always respect

the greats of our profession who have come before us. In addition it is of great personal

importance to me to share my personal values and experiences through my work.

My appetite for new knowledge has taught me: one is never done gaining new ideas

or learning about new concepts. This is why I seek to learn and develop new methods

within the realms of landscape architecture. Finally I would simply like to continue on my chosen life‘s journey, in which landscape architecture will now continue to play a

decisive role.

5 from 34 A group of 34 trees can be found in the northern part of Freising. The tree crowns create a large enclosed area. The shape of the crowns can be compared to a bell. This creates a feeling of protection for those who find themselves within this space. A simple path winding its way around tree trunks highlights the atmosphere which is found here. Stepping stones encourage visitors to climb up onto the different platforms surrounded by trees. These platforms intend to give visitors a place to rest or enjoy the atmosphere on different heights.

RAUMaufenthalt The aim of this project was to create new areas offering both places of refuge and sensory experience. This intervention seeks to display the transition between the existing tree stock to a highly technical underground garage. This crossover should be seen on the ground‘s surface. We intended to create a smooth passage from the natural tree stock to an established meadow with fruit trees ending with an artificial tree rectangle. The area is structured by the pergolas which in themselves create space. The resulting proportions lead us to associate our intervention with Mark Rothko´s color field painting. Drawing inspiration from this work of art, we chose different shades of green for the different materials (natural grass, olympia mastix, glass mulch). A wall of tamped clay as well as the pergolas frame the picture.

Architect´s plan of fusion After our survey of teachers and pupils at the FOS/ BOS Memmingen our analysis finds a dominant building which meets the monotonous and empty outdoor school grounds.

This disharmony motivated us to develop different theories of harmony such as: the theories of Louis Sullivan and Lancelot Brown. If the building is embedded in its surroundings accordingly, the feeling of disharmony will vanish. Our aim was to have the building and its surroundings come together as one. Through the remodeling of the topography as well as the conscious placement of trees and plants we were able to create a place of harmony.
