In search of Milan's DNA

Lotus, n. 161, January 2017

“Landscape design teachesarchitects something fundamental: it is a bad idea to stifle growth, vital structures cannot be put into hibernation. In this way investigations in territories and landscapes are liberating from an architectural perspective as well [...]. The ideals are no longer concerned with stability, harmony, balance and necrophilic detachment, but the management of conflict, existential anxiety and revived nomadism". Bruno Zevi

Marghera, ideas for the future

Text by Andreas Kipar in "I tre futuri di Venezia. Marghera, Mestre e città storica, pensieri sulle trasformazioni", edited by L. Facchinelli, O. Giovinazzi, V. Martini, Ed. Trasporti & Cultura, Venezia 2017.

"Urban regeneration, reduction of land-take, regional development: these topics are crucial today for politicians and urban developers. Cities cooperate and compete to attract new investiments, inhabitants, users. To achive these goals, they implement strategies to turn former industrial cities into centers for business and services, cultural and recreational hubs or even technological platforms".

Mediterra Editrice, Milano 2016

Europe's future depends on our future cities

"European Green Capitals. Experiences of Sustainable Urban Regeneration", Edited by G. Capocchin, M. Botti, G. Furlan, S. Lironi, Lettera Ventidue, Siracusa 2016

"Our society in the past decades faced new challenges for urban development of metropolitan areas. Some cities experienced a constant growth whilst others are shrinking due to the relocation of industrial production or socio-economical dynamics of rural areas. In both cases the worldwide trend of urbanization as well as the need to build new infrastructures and renew the spatial and functional structure of already urbanized areas generates conflicts that may turn into threats for citizens’ life quality, if not adequately addresses by planning policies".

The need for landscape

Abitare, n. 558, October 2016

"Landscape design is an atypical discipline. It has long time scales and often has to mediate between the public and the private, architecture and nature. But it is precisely because of this flexibility that it is becoming crucial in today’s world."

Andreas Kipar

Edited by A. Coppa, G. Marinoni, SMOwnPublishing 2015

Milano, Essen, Colonia, Mosca. Potrebbe sembrare un paradosso: il libro di un ‘paesaggista’ ha come protagonista la città. Ma questo, oltre a riflettere gli specifici interessi, le attitudini e le passioni di un ‘paesaggista composito’ come Andreas Kipar, rispecchia l’attuale articolata nozione di paesaggio. E anche ha a che fare con quella sorta di ‘nouvelle vague’ che la progettazione di paesaggio ha conosciuto in questi ultimi decenni.
