Pantone Landscapes: The Visual Order of the City after ‘Urbanalization’ | Monday, 9 February 2015, at 7 p.m.
In his lecture, “Pantone Landscapes”, geographer Francesc Muñoz will explore the “urbanalization” hypothesis he proposed a few years ago. A quick look at the “copy and paste” style of urban planning used in cities’ historical centres, shopping areas and airports, and in the water features and glass towers of their waterfronts, it is clear that his theory is as valid today as it was back then.
Francesc Muñoz is currently working on the project designs for landscape intervention and management in different types of urban and non-urbanized spaces. He is the director of the Urban Planning Observatory and of different master’s and postgraduate programmes, such as the Master’s Degree in Landscape and Heritage Intervention and Management at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. His publications include the books urBANALización: Paisajes Comunes, Lugares Globales (UrBANALization: Common Landscapes, Global Places) (Gustavo Gili, Barcelona 2008) and Estrategias hacia la ciudad de baja densidad: de la contención a la gestión (Strategies for the Low-Density City: From Containment to Management) (Diputació de Barcelona, 2011)
He collaborates with the CCCB in several projects, you can find here some videos and related information about him: >>>>>>>>
