Exploring research theories and methods of rural settlement landscape from a multidisciplinary perspective

ByN.-X. Wang & Q. Lu

Landscape architecture is an interdisciplinary subject focusing on ecology, geography, and architecture. It also covers the range of philosophy, history, and art subjects and highlights practice. Currently, Chinese landscape architecture mainly focuses on landscape characters, cultural relics, ecological protection, and so on. It always starts from the macro-view of ecological planning and concentrates on natural patch and corridor conservation planning, land use, and rural landscape planning as well as rural human settlement environment and settlement planning [5].
