Abstract

In just a few years the crisis has brought about the development of a different understanding of social, environmental and economic values, a point of view that transforms the demand for change. A new geography of desire is modifying the development processes so quickly that it produces crises in the economic and cultural centers that are more inert or more resistant to the change dynamics, making them suddenly seem old and outmoded. The crisis is decidedly changing the way we think about the future and the forms it is taking. It is a crucial issue that directly affects the lives of the citizens and sets qualitative targets of a different kind and new paradigms for architectural and city planning. Landscape is the synthetic idea of a context that is, at the same time, natural and cultural, ecological and social. It is a point of view about change. If a territory is no longer needed to describe reality, to interpret the condition of our settlements, landscape remains. What I am able to tell about a physical space, inhabited or natural, is what inside my eyes: my culture, my point of view, the way in which I look at it. But at the same time, territory is like physical space and environment is like life space. That’s it. Landscape puts these two categories together, and through projects of its continual change, tells us a story about our society and our time.
