WALKSCAPES FOR CAMPOSAMPIERO

WALKSCAPES FOR CAMPOSAMPIERO | A Nomadic Observatory for an Inclusive Design
EUROPEAN MASTER IN URBANISM | IUAV Venice, KU Levune, PARSONS The New School for Design NYC

A territory is traced by multiple typologies of activity on multiple scales and levels.
Recognizing the importance and relevance of the informal traces as a strategic resource, leads to a development of new way to think, represent and affect the territory itself as a resilient, dynamic and inclusive realm.

PSYCHOGEOGRAPHIC MAP

This work wants to assess a twofold narrative.

  • a general framework about communicability and inclusiveness of urbanism, through experimentation of alternative modes of representation of space.
  • a grounded design for Camposampiero in Padua, focused on sustainable, resilient and participated strategies.

Here lies the importance and the relevance within the metaphor of urbanism as a language. It alloes to refer in a first instance to rational and funcional structures, trough wich it is possible to organize thoughts and formulate an intelligible message. On the other yet iyt is able to go beyond its functional component in a way to grant a creative and symbolic poiesis.

The graphic novel – embodying an experimentation on the representation of urban space and communication of urban symbolism –
constitutes the narration of the design strategy for Camposampiero in itself.
