Southern Landscapes is a project derived from the collaborative transnational project MODSCAPES – Modernist Reinventions of the Rural Landscape, aiming to continue the study of transformations resulting from internal colonization in Southern Europe from the architectural and urbanism point of view.
To this end, it was decided to organize it into work packages, through which it is intended both to deepen specific aspects of the theme and to disseminate the collected documentation in order to make it useful for future research work.
The project also include as WP, short-term ESAP Projects, co-financed by the Autonomous Section of Theory and History and by the ESAP Department of Architecture following an internal call.
