Working with the territory: strategies for the new territorialities / Travailler avec le territoire : stratégies pour les nouvelles territorialités
Carles Llop Torné and Stéphane Bosc
Metropolisation and urban sprawl are recurrences of recent developments in European territories, and particularly the Mediterranean. However, these phenomena often oppose the idea of environmental conservation and respect for natural and economic equilibriums. CREPUD-MED has allowed a group of European experts, local elected officials, academics, architects, planners, geographers, sociologists… to combine their skills and to question the notion of territorial development understood as a “project-process.”
Four case-studies of four European regions are presented within: Val de Durance (Région Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur), Funo (Provincia di Bologna), Metropolitan Region of Barcelona and Eleonas (Athens); in the form of an atlas, as a knowledge instrument of the territory; and a project book, where different strategies that can lead to a contemporary and interterritorial project are proposed.
