What will be our relationship with nature? we asked Andreas Kipar, founder of LAND (Landscape, Architecture, Nature, Development) with Giovanni Sala.
LAND’s mission “reconnecting people with nature” is one of the answers for the future together with the word “transformation“.
And Sustainability, the key word for urban transformation and landscape architecture, is now more than ever the driver of the future.
What is happening makes us reflect on what we already knew. Now it is necessary to understand how to reposition our relationship with nature in urban contexts, in terms of health, comfort and also as a response to climate adaptation.
The city will have an even more important role in the future because we will travel less.
I think about a sort of Third Nature that protects us. We have to do it for our health, for our well-being.
It’s not just about planting trees in the city, it’s also about generating beauty. The Italian way can teach us a new aesthetic positioned in the dialectic between humanistic culture and nature.
The city doesn’t have to be a place to suffer. This is not an elite theme, but a social and ethical theme. It is not just a matter of creating green terraces, courtyards and vertical park; creating an urban landscape means connecting with our roots and I am confident that this model can come to life.
