As a landscape architecture student, this Germany study abroad provides me many benefits and wonderful memories. Not only from the design concept, but also the idea of individual, for career, life, teamwork, cultural understanding… Our whole team spent five weeks together, we have different cultural backgrounds, different professional understanding, but we have the same idea: learn from this trip to Germany to the knowledge we need.
I am very grateful to the Landscape Architecture department and SEBS for giving us this opportunity to broaden our horizons and understand the new world. Germany has a completely different design perspective from the United States, and there is a difference in the acceptance of landscape architecture by the public.Now the city is developing rapidly, and more natural sites are being swallowed up by the new city plan. But many people and planning people have neglected the disadvantages of losing green space. German designers and government departments use a new way to maintain nature, allowing nature to better integrate with modern urban protection rather than replace it.
Studying abroad in Germany is just a small start for me. It opened my new world. I encourage every student of landscape architecture not only to have a pair of insightful eyes, but also to go out of the house and feel the beauty that the world brings to you. There are too many designers in this world who have a smarter mind than us. Only by learning more and more individual can understand those essence inside designs. I have never regretted the choice of this trip, and I am greatly grateful for this opportunity. It added me another chapter on my life journey and encouraged me to continue my passionate on the future way of study.
