Each of the three Landscape Institute seminars, held as part of a fringe event at the Ecobuild exhibition, focused on a different aspect of landscape and housing.
"We had a full house at each of the seminars," explained Landscape Institute director of policy and communications Paul Lincoln. "They were very popular and fitted in with the green infrastructure focus of the Cityscape element of the show."
The first seminar focused on the importance of landscape planning.
Led by Clare Brockhurst, who co-authored the Landscape Institute's latest position statement, Making it Home: The Power of Landscape to Deliver Communities of the Future, the session also featured a case study of the Cambourne development in Cambridgeshire.
A seminar on innovation was led by landscape architect Peter Wilder - who developed the masterplan for the BRE Innovation Park in Ravenscraig, Scotland.
The importance of landscape design and social issues were explored in a third seminar presented by Farrer Huxley Associates director Noel Farrer.
In the main exhibition, a major installation designed by former Chelsea Flower Show designer Patrick Collins was a draw to Capita Symonds' Cityscape feature. The 10m tall green cube highlighted the role of green infrastructure in creating sustainable communities.
