Series: Fare Paesaggi/Making Landscape
“Sharing landscape” is the starting point and conclusion of a reflection on the landscape, where the protagonist is the community, in the center of the building process of physical and virtual places within the Network Society.
Information and communication technologies affect our way of thinking, perceiving and living an “augmented reality” that develops around sociality and data communication.
The sharing paradigm, from the virtual streams of the Internet, flows into the physical space, redefining the social, economic and cultural dynamics: bottom up actions of “urban makers” and “creative communities” and “open governance” policies in smart cities, both highlight new design approaches for spaces, cities and territories, focused on the inhabitants collaboration. This scenario confirms a new awareness of the inhabitants participation value in the urban transformation as a solution to critical situations and contemporary problems, but also generates many questions about the theorical and operative architecture, for the need to define tools and methods able to interpreting and designing this new reality. What are the strategies for the project? Which materials? What role for the architect? The relationship between the Landscape and the Web becomes the key to answering these questions.
