Workshop / ArchDebates III: Islamic Landscape Architecture and the Making of the Renaissance Garden

Date : 21 mars 2024

Heure : 14:00
Lieu : Madrid

Chercheur(s) Intervenant(s)

Die 3. Veranstaltung in der Reihe „Diskussionen zur Architektur in der Archäologie“ widmet sich der Frage nach den islamischen Wurzeln der europäischen Landschaftsarchitektur. Immer wieder sind Ähnlichkeiten zwischen der Gestaltung islamischer und Renaissancegärten beobachtet worden, von der Terrassierung und der Wertschätzung des Blicks bis zum Einsatz von Wasser als Gestaltungsmittel. In dem gemeinsam mit der École Pratique des Hautes Études (Paris) und der Escuela de Estudios Árabes (CSIC) organisierten Workshop soll der Frage nachgegangen werden, inwiefern diese Gemeinsamkeiten auf einen Kulturaustausch zurück gehen, oder auf parallele kulturelle Entwicklungen.

The third event in the series « Discussions on Architecture in Archaeology » is dedicated to the question of the Islamic roots of European landscape architecture. Similarities between the design of Islamic and Renaissance gardens have been observed time and again, from terracing and the appreciation of views to the use of water as a design element. The workshop, organized jointly with the École Pratique des Hautes Études (Paris) and the Escuela de Estudios Árabes (CSIC), will explore the extent to which these similarities are the result of cultural exchange or parallel cultural developments.

El tercer encuentro de la serie « Debates sobre arquitectura en arqueología » está dedicado a la cuestión de las raíces islámicas de la arquitectura paisajista europea. Las similitudes entre el diseño de los jardines islámicos y renacentistas se han observado una y otra vez, desde el aterrazamiento y la apreciación de la vista hasta el uso del agua como elemento de diseño. El taller, organizado conjuntamente con la École Pratique des Hautes Études (París) y la Escuela de Estudios Árabes (CSIC), explorará hasta qué punto estas similitudes son el resultado de intercambios culturales o de desarrollos culturales paralelos.
