The concept of „sharing” experiences is essential in our society… We hear about gardens, parks, green spaces … that are obviously part of landscape, but what happens with the problems of agri-cultural landscapes, productive landscapes, deserted, nitrated landscapes? What happens with the rural populations? What are the new relations between the city and the village? Here the landscape architects are missing and sometimes things are going well, sometimes not. Why? The mission of landscape architects of tomorrow is certainly more comprehensive than what we think today: more social, more human, more tasteful! We really need new tasty landscape! This is what we want to do with the project of Izvoru, a new productive landscape around the old Perticari Davila mansion, for the village, for the city, for people. This old mansion was totally destroyed in the last 10 years, and nowadays we try to find solutions to create a new economical activity based on the historical elements, based on the local landscape ” N.T.
