A timely project for RUHR.2010, which showcases the Ruhr as 2010 European Capital of Culture. Features innovative concepts for agrarian land use in urbanised regions and fascinating designs by landscape architect Paolo Bürgi

Agricultural areas in industrial and urban regions will in the future no longer be seen merely as functional space but rather as islands of the beautiful and the useful. In the extremely densely built Ruhr region - European Capital of Culture RUHR.2010 and one of Europe’s major agglomerations with an industrial history - two projects explore the space between postindustrial forest landscape and useful agricultural landscape: the Industrial Forest of Rhine-Elbe and the Ornamental Farm of Mechtenberg.
