The Seminar will host the annual meeting of UNISCAPE GENERAL ASSEMBLY (20 June 2019, 10.00)
This Seminar proposes a multidisciplinary, transversal and convergent approach that overcomes the struggles for the institutional prominence and the spurious appropriations of the term, to help a convergence of views on the landscape. Contemplating, in addition to the territorial aspects, the emotional and affective, cognitive, ethical and aesthetic dimensions.
The Seminar is structured in three blocks or lines of reflection:
LINE 1. INHERITED LANDSCAPES. This line proposes reflections on the historical conformation of the landscape, about different processes that take place on the landscape: settlements, migrations, transformations, crops, abandonments, changes of use, etc. Questions about identity of the landscape and how to analyse the effects of exploitation and climate change on ecosystems and natural resources. Discussions around the economic exploitation as an agent of landscape transformation.
LINE 2. BUILT LANDSCAPES. This line means to check the relevance of the project as a landscape management tool, as well as the cyclical dynamics of landscape construction and destruction. The influence of large infrastructures in the articulation and modelling of the territory, and the strategies for landscape regeneration.
LINE 3. LIVED LANDSCAPES. This line invites to consider landscape as a substrate and as an experience of human activity, from the perception to the habitat, and then to intervention. To integrate studies on Philosophy, art and landscape theory into the education of the landscape.
