In the field of urban design, architecture has recently come to terms with landscape’s emergence from mere background of objects to its engagement with complex environmental dynamics. Landscape architecture has become a primary point of reference from which to think about planning, ecology, and infrastructure, through a performative attention to time-based processes of transformation at multiple scales.
35 years ago, the exhibition Roma Interrotta inaugurated the post-modernist focus on the permanent values of historical urban center. Princeton’s and Columbia’s Schools of Architecture have recently participated in an initiative called “Roma 20-25,” in which 25 international universities have both critically re-assessed the role of architecture, urban, and landscape design at a metropolitan scale, and outlined new visions for a pedagogical approach to its modes of representation and relationship to the larger urban environment.
