Abstract/Contents:Green spaces and infrastructures offer multiple ways to tackle challenges associated with increased urbanisation and densification. Greenspace aesthetics have long been pointed out as an important aspect to support human health and wellbeing. There is however a need for evidence-based approaches in order to aid practitioners, such as, e.g. landscape architects and urban planners/designers, to best meet peoples needs. Here we summarize a comprehensive study, conducted since the early 1980s, with the intention to identify the most important perceived qualities of urban green spaces. We compile evidence collected between 1984 and 2018 suggesting eight key qualities, or perceived sensory dimensions, as particularly important to support peoples needs. A summary interpretation of our collected evidence suggests that they can be related to each other in a model with four axes of opposing qualities, 1) a Natural Cultural axis, 2) a Cohesive Diverse axis, 3) a Sheltered Open axis, and 4) a Serene Social axis. Synergies and tensions between qualities are suggested based on their relations in the model, as well as some possible implications for greenspace planning and design. In general, simultaneous support for three closely related qualities is suggested as a simple heuristic for strong aesthetic function. We believe our model to account for equally important but complementary aesthetic needs that people seek support for in their close-by outdoor environment. As such, it could aid the inclusion of an evidence-based perspective on greenspace aesthetics in various design and planning practises, as well as in trans- and interdisciplinary research settings.
