Research content

Though the topics of research of landscape architecture in the modern world are so diverse, I am particularly interested in those which directly relate and contribute to the improvement of our quality of life. Most studies are carried out through the collaboration among students, developer, local authorities, and local residents, and viable solutions, which should be visually pleasing as well as financially feasible, are sought out.
