Transitional Territories

Transitional Territories studio and research focus on the de-construction and re-construction of physical, ecological and political relations between downstream and upstream areas within hydrological basins and ocean spaces. We see the agency of urban design and architecture as the fine-tuning of the ever-changing interrelations between natural processes, societal practices, and (geo)political frameworks. The leading hypothesis is that the territory is a shared project – independently from scale – wherein the urban always co-constructs with nature. The studio graduation projects focus on the design of alternative forms of coexistence and care in highly dynamic geographies characterised by fragility, criticality and risk.
