The text is a chapter in the book Revising Green Infrastructure: Concepts Between Nature and Design, which presents innovative approaches in designing green, landscape or nature as infrastructure from different perspectives and attitudes instead of adding another definition or category of green infrastructure. The approaches range from retrofitting existing infrastructures through landscape-based integrations of new infrastructures and envisioning prospective landscapes as hybrids, machines, or cultural extensions. The contributors share a decidedly cultural perspective on nature as landscape and the presented ecological views emphasize the individual nature of specific local situations. The chapter explores a scientific functional approach in landscape architecture. It includes an overview of green functionalism and includes examples of how new design logics are deducted from ecology in order to meet economic and environmental requirements. It finally opens to new aesthetic relationships toward nature.
