Urban and Landscape Perspectives

Series Ed.: Maciocco, Giovanni

Aims and Scope
The Urban and Landscape Perspectives series aims at nurturing theoretic reflection on the city and territory and devising and applying methods and techniques for improving our physical and social landscapes.
The main themes of the series are developed around the projectual dimension, with the objective of visualizing both the city and the territory from a particular viewpoint, which singles out the territorial dimension as the city’s space of communication and negotiation.
The series examines emerging problems that characterize the dynamics of city development, like the new fresh relations between urban societies and physical space, the right to the city, urban equality, the project for the physical city as a means to reveal civitas, signs of new social cohesiveness, the sense of contemporary public space and the sustainability of urban development.
Concerned with advancing theories on the city, the series resolves to welcome articles that feature a pluralism of disciplinary contribution studying formal and informal practices on the project for the city and seeking conceptual and operative categories capable of understanding and facing the problems inherent in the profound transformation of contemporary urban landscapes.
