Section 8 | Living Territories

Defining areas for intervention is the first step in planners' and designers' activities. The regional approach in selecting problematic frames and design surfaces was the key issue proposed in this call for papers in the session entitled Living in Territories. How and why a region is defined are crucial questions in urban and landscape planning. Three  criteria are widely known to delimitate a region: biophysical, political and socio-economical. They are deeply connected to the sustainable development of territories.

Energy systems, ecological structures, agricultural activities, settlements and communities are the elements identified in querying the regional concept and finally, regional planning incertitude.  When we think about the regional scale in the planning and design process we  imagine a specific approach which deals with urban and rural issues together, because a region is never a uniform environment.

What elements could help planners and designers hypothesize their research field and interpret  their operational ground? What are the analysis methods, planning processes and design tools that should be explored in order more effectively implement regional planning?

Although people are more and more involved in the planning processes, this point, as well as the procedure to include stewardship practices in planning, is the most relevant uncertainty for planners and designers.

In the call for paper two main questions were asked to be explored:  on one hand the regional approach in planning and design concerning methods, procedures and operational knowledge; on the other hand the planners’ and designers’ roles in regional transformations.
