I am delighted to announce the Second International Congress on Landscape Architecture Research (ICLAR) which will be held in Turkey.
Landscapes are defined as the places where all our living activities take place, in other words, they are our living spaces. Our physical and mental health as well as social and cultural development are directly related to the quality of the landscapes. Landscapes improve the quality of life with its aesthetic, environmental, physical, psychological, socio-cultural and economic benefits and play an important role in the development of healthy societies.Sustainability of landscapes can be achieved through planning, design, protection, repair, and management studies. One of the most important professions involved in this study area is landscape architecture.
