The 2011 workshop Erasmus IP "Changing Landscapes - Mediterranean Sensitive Areas Design" took place in the University of Thessaly in Volos, from Thursday 2nd to Thursday 16th of June, 2011.
The Changing Landscape/ Mediterranean Sensitive Areas Design Project it is a joint program which brings together European Schools of Architecture and Landscape design allowing to face and to share different attitudes, strategies, politics of intervention focussing on Mediterranean critical areas, where the landscape project (in terms of value and quality) imbeds a cultural dimension and serves as sources of reference.
The project objective is to strengthen the research focussing on the values and sensitiveness applied to the landscape project, in both meaning the aesthetic-cultural and the ecological-environmental. It will be helpful to lead new strategies of intervention for this particular situation. Themes are different: abandoned industrial areas, suburban areas, the public space system for the city, parks and gardens design into marginal ambits, coastal line and infrastructures, all things that need a definition of problems and most of all correct approaches to work out in the “landscape system”. So to build, with this experience, a disciplinary specialization and to enlarge the educational system, and over to share and to favour cultural exchanges between all involved Universities.
