RIVERFLOW (after the sprawl)- new settings for territorial capital - Ref. 360/2012

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Land transformation, in a scenario of strong contraction of resources like the present, seems to be quite a fleeting subject. Design disciplines, which were used to interpret the growth as a consumption activity done by a confident colonization of empty spaces, now appear to be immobilized by the end of the incremental logic, an attitude which was often stigmatized, but never dropped. At the same time, other land elements are ignored, sometimes even rejected, neglected or maybe protected, but surely excluded from the processes of transformation: they are geographical structures whose marginal life somehow continue, and still endure, potentially showing a new vitality. The Research Workgroup will inquire into this potentiality through an experimental recycling process made on old and new materials, upon which new transformations are to be imagined.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
