Kristina Knauf in podcast Architekturfunk

Kristina Knauf spoke with journalist Kerstin Kunekath for the podcast series Architekturfunk by Heinze GmbH. How do we implement the LAND motto "Reconnecting people with Nature?" Thinking about planning and transformation processes from the perspective of nature, changing people's focus.

As the managing director of LAND Germany in Düsseldorf, Kristina Knauf dedicates herself entirely to landscape planning and consultancy to drive the development of blue and green infrastructure in cities forward. In this podcast episode, she explains how she deals with the complexity of the topic, who she works with to implement it, what strategies some municipalities are already implementing and what makes her hopeful despite the slow pace of change.

How do we work with clients and stakeholders on climate adaptation? How do we integrate and scale climate adaptation measures? What is LAND’s range of services, and, above all, how has the role of landscape architecture changed? Kristina is optimistic: The meaning of “sustainability” is slowly getting into everyone’s head, landscape architecture is increasingly becoming a guiding principle in planning processes, and the urgency for change and acceleration in administrations is becoming noticeable.

Of course, in LAND, we drive change together with our clients and partners, underlining the collaborative approach of our field, where we expand the traditional landscape architecture services by exploring new organisational, business, and financing models.
