Landscapes at the tipping point: the landscape of the in-between city

Michiel Dehaene UGent (2014) OASE. 93. p.100-117
abstract
If urbanisation has been historically portrayed as a front moving over the country from the city outwards, today the process of urbanisation is unbounded. It spreads through networks in changing relations and geometries over the territory and encompasses the entire planet. Also the transformation of non-urban to urban is no longer attached to a clear line demarcating the boundary between city and countryside. An in-between landscape is spreading with the urbanisation along the rational of the network. The interpretation of urbanisation in terms of landscape fosters the search for strategies that transform urbanisation as an accumulation process into a work of building meaning. Through the documentation of four cultural events, AIR Rotterdam, IBA Emscherpark, 50.000 Logements Bordeaux and IABR Rotterdam 2014, this article shows the various ways in which the landscape perspective has been used to transform the multiple spatial claims and intensified use of the territory into a shared semantic field, creating the circumstances to make the unbounded process of urbanisation the subject of public discussion.
