RURAL DISTRCT OF PRIORAT-5th edition

With the interest on recognizing the landscape, cultural and architecture values of the Priorat, a mountainous  area in the north east of Spain, students are working during one week during 2013 in describing urban morphologies with relation to the agricultural activities, the main and only economic occupation in the area.

In 2014 focus was on urban and landscape regulation. Students worked during one week visualizing the scope and impact of the plans.

The objective of this workshop, which was develop for 5 years, is to support the candidacy to the UNESCO cultural landscape.

Thus, in those editions, water system that irrigate the small groves, trails and bridges that connect towns and valleys, walls that modified the landscape to make it arable, and build-up areas are identified and represented. At the same time, regulations are assessed to identify risks affecting the natural landscape. Proposals are therefore stated to improve management and enhance landscape values.
