ARGRICULTURAL LANDSCAPES OF THE MEDITERRANEAN MOUNTAIN
RURAL DISTRCT OF PRIORAT-5th edition
With the aim of recognizing the landscape, cultural and architecture values of the Priorat, a mountainous area in the northeast of Spain, students worked during one in 2013 on describing urban morphologies with relation to the agricultural activities, the main and only economic occupation in the area.
In 2014, the focus was on urban and landscape regulation. Students worked for one week visualizing the scope and impact of the plans.
The aim of this workshop, which was developed for 5 years, was to support the candidacy to the UNESCO cultural landscape.
Thus, during those editions, a water system that irrigates small groves, trails and bridges that connect towns and valleys, walls that modified the landscape to make it arable, and built-up areas were identified and represented. At the same time, regulations were assessed to identify the risks affecting the natural landscape. Proposals were therefore stated to improve management and enhance landscape values.
