Emerging Landscapes and Territories

Emerging Landscapes and Territories

The landscape is continually changing in relation to natural processes, climate change and urban development. The discipline includes the major relationships to the basic structures that make up the landscape such as flooding, urban growth, energy production, and new infrastructure routes.  

Natural landscape variations throughout the seasons and from year to year, gives rise to biodiversity and nature-based industries. Infrastructure development, energy harvesting and utilization of (non-renewable) natural resources will, along with climate change, change the balance of the ecological and economic systems. What are the consequences of interventions and how does this change places over time? 

What is the sustainable and long-term options that can respond to new challenges? The subject examines the major and minor cycles and discusses reversible and irreversible changes to approach an overall understanding of the landscape and the local landscape practices, issues of just, conflicting objectives and dialogue processes.
