AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Landscape design requires a multidisciplinary ability for reading and understanding the project site. The Laboratory proposes a design path that expresses cultural contents starting from the interpretation of the context at different dimensional levels and in coherence with the transformations that characterized it and with the inhabitants’ needs. The integrated module intends to give to the students a specific support in relation to the analytical and critical study of the landscape context where the project area is located. It will provide useful tools for conscious design, in particular by guiding students in the design of open spaces in connection with the urban, peri-urban and large-scale landscape context, with reference to the most current contemporary examples of landscape design.

Teaching methods

Lectures on the most significant topics and 
 integrated REVIEWSof the students' works.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Methodological and applicative lessons, integrated with reviews of students' work:

Retrieval and selection of data: Reading of maps, thematic maps, aerial photos, etc.(with introduction GEOPORTAL use by geomorfolab)
Analysis of landscape transformations
Relations between the historic center, the urban area and the cultivated plain
Identification of critical and strategic areas
PROJECT Themes to be developed:
Interpretation of the landscape as project content
Connections between the project area and the context: visual references, physical connections to a broader urban redevelopment system
WATER: along the river, archaeological area in the riverbed, embankments, SOIL permeability and surface water DRAINAGE.
VEGETATION and ecosystem services for a resilient city.
Participation and shared planning: needs of the inhabitants and socio-cultural aspects. Gentle mobility.
Examples of landscape projects with similar themes.
