CSLA 2020 - Enria Dall’Ara - Landscape in Motion. Interdisciplinary methodology to inform design processes
Landscape in Motion. Interdisciplinary methodology to inform design processes

This presentation will focus on urban design processes and their acknowledgement of and sensitivity to local identities as temporal products. Pairing an artistic and phenomenological sensibility with in-depth landscape analysis, the presentation addresses a current project, Landscape in Motion, which aims to transform design approaches employed in urban renewal projects. Through this project, we examine urban landscapes using both spatial data (mapping) and experiential activities (site-specific physical and aural performance methods), in order to develop specific creative outputs. The outputs, which will be linked through a site-specific installation and an online platform, will then be accessible to community members, design firms, artists, and academics. Overall, the project aims to convey the aura of past and existing conditions of place, as key informational indicators for future design processes. In particular, the presentation addresses the methodology and lexicon we are developing through this process, with attention paid to the confluence of space and time as key dimensions in the disciplines of landscape design and dance choreography. Specifically, we address the development of an interdisciplinary stratigraphic methodology that can offer a portrayal of landscape as a complex palimpsest, at different temporal scales, to inform future design processes.
