12.12.2014 >> REGGIO CALABRIA : LECTURE STRATEGIE E PROCESSI PER RIATTIVARE PAESAGGI RESILIENTI

The day December 12, 2012 AutonomeForme is invited in Reggio Calabria to the workshop “L’orto incolto” to hold the seminar “Strategies and processes to reactivate resilient landscapes”.The term resilience (from Latin: resilire) comes from metallurgy and indicates the breaking strength of a material and, more generally, the ability to face and overcome adversity. Applied to the landscape, the term resilience describes the ability of an ecosystem natural and human to restore a new equilibrium condition following an intervention of external disturbance. The definition of new strategies and processes to reactivate landscapes resilient allows you to connect the characteristics of the site, the program and the demands of the people, in order to develop projects in which the size of natural and man-made can co-evolve reducing the vulnerability of the landscape and building new development scenarios based on a synergistic relationship between man and nature.

The Workshop “L’orto incolto” is focussed on urban agriculture and is promoted by SUDARCH in collaboration with the Ecolandia Park, under the european project “The Garden of Calypso” made in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts and the Music Conservatory of Reggio Calabria, with the sponsorship of the Order of Architects and Engineers of Reggio Calabria, the association Italia Nostra of Reggio Calabria, the Department of Agriculture of the University of Reggio Calabria, the Innovation Pole Net – Nature Energy and Territory, with the partecipation of the AIAPP section Campania, Basilicata and Calabria and with the technical partnership of newitalianblood.com and professionearchitetto.it.
