“We build …
… and always leave a footprint. Our concern is to do justice to every place and to create habitats for people, but also for animals and plants, which we all too often deprive of their habitat first for this purpose. That’s why we focus first on the existing landscape with its special features and potentials.” This is the credo of landscape architects Ingrid Liebald and Katja Aufermann.

In their view, the topic of green should be at the beginning of all planning tasks in every building project at every planning level, whether urban land use planning or works planning: “Green First” as the pioneer Richard Bödecker called this philosophy.

In 2022, liebald + aufermann landschaftsarchitekten und stadtplaner were awarded the Bavarian Landscape Architecture Prize for their ecological model settlement in Prinz-Eugen-Park in Munich.





The partnership liebald + aufermann landschaftsarchitekten und stadtplaner was founded in 2012 by Ingrid Liebald and Katja Aufermann in Munich and currently comprises a well-established team of just under a dozen dedicated employees. They are supported by a long-standing network of experienced planning partners.

In their work, they always keep an eye on those who do not enjoy a large lobby: e.g. people with a migration background, senior citizens, children, but also insects, bats and some so-called weeds. Ideally, they plan gardens with the participation of the future residents and users for their needs and demands. In this way, they contribute to everyone taking responsibility for “their” areas after the landscape architects have left the construction site.
