TERRITORIAL COMPLEXITY

Carlos Umaña – Tactical Morphologies

March 10, 2011. 4.30 PM. Veritas University Lecture Hall.

LU/CR tutor Carlos Umaña will be presenting the project “Tactical Morphologies: Resisting the Uncertainty of Strategic PLanning”, thesis project for the MA in Landscape Urbanism at the Architectural Association  School of Architecture.

The project addresses the issue of soil remediation, artificial topographies and green infrastructure as main tools for re-territorialization, challenging local relocation policies, capital accumulation and land dispossession.

“THE PROJECT WILL TAKE ACTION IN THE LOW SCALE OF “DOING”, RETHINKING THE VOIDS AND SPACES LEFT BEHIND IN THE CITY BY THE UNCERTAINTY OF STRATEGIC APPROACHES, COMBINING THEM SYSTEMATICALLY IN ORDER FOR THEM TO ADAPT WHERE ANY SITUATION DEMANDS.”

“TACTICALLLY RESIST THE TOP DOWN ACTIONS AND MARKET-ORIENTED URBAN PLANNING BY  redefining methodologies and reestablishing connections between nature and the built environment…”

“QUESTIONING THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SPACE, AND PRODUCTIVE AND URBAN LANDSCAPES.”
