CONTEXT: Symposium of the new Institute of Urban and Landscapes Studies (ISUP), Accademia di Architettura, Mendrisio, October 29./30., 2020
The inaugural symposium organised by the Institute of Urban and Landscape Studies (ISUP) aims to rethink density as a conceptual category that extends not only to urban areas but also to the surrounding territories. Dense living environments have become the norm in many parts of the world, and the rural/urban divide is obsolete when it comes to conceptualising density. Globalised realities are much more complex and new spatial entities are constantly being created by the movement of people, goods and services.
