Topos 66/2009 Landscape Strategies

People live in cultural landscapes; they change their environments to suit economic requirements or through the way they manage their affairs. In the process, they often exhibit a strong urge to shape things, creating completely new landscapes by means of landfill islands or interventions in the existing vegetation. Landscape strategies encompass both urban and rural landscapes, the latter often being in a state of gradual or sudden transition to becoming urban.
