2020_Gaetan_Philipot_Latents_landscape_of_Roma_Category A

My project follows the logic of research through the project, of which my questions are as follows: How can we reconcile the need for urban natural spaces and the unique landscape heritage in relation to the future post-oil urban changes in the municipality of Rome? Which I hypothesize that current or future (post-oil) neglected spaces as a key to (re) conciliation for post-oil changes.
My project takes place in three stages, from exploring the territory, imagining landscape transition scenarios and how to activate them. I started from landscapes that I qualified as latent, in other words pending (or forgotten), presenting a latent potential, waiting to be exploited to become a landscape. I imagined three scenarios, free wilderness (the man is spectator and the guardian), becoming of reconciliation (the man observes and acts for and not against) and, becoming of an urban park (whose objective is to ensure an open space available).
My choice fell on reconciliation. Reconciliation goes through the experimental gardens with a centre of research about urban nature, the garden of the commons where citizens learn to garden the third landscape, and the place of the commons where they test new space practices. My work aims to raise awareness that abandoned spaces, which are in a period of latency, have the potential to be considered as landscapes by their social, ecological, subjective values, and no longer as “warts” in the established urban order. These three scenarios are possibilities of activations of abandoned spaces.
