M. Ricci (2012). New Paradigms. p. 1-196, Barcellona:List, ISBN: 9788895623535
In the world of urban planning, architecture and landscape a new paradigm is a new way of working that has big effects on the living space. A new paradigm refers to an idea of science according to which new technologies or discoveries can completely change the way people think or act. For the disciplines related to design is worth the same idea: a new paradigm is a completely different way of looking at living spaces and their change. The transition from a system of measures (the territory) to a system of values (the landscape) represents the conceptual background and the overall goal of the research and projects presented in this book. In the landscape we recognize ourselves. By describing it, we tell ourselves. We identify. We give value and meaning to things we do. In this sense, in the projects of architecture and the city, we constantly interpret landscapes. The landscape is, in some way, the descriptive category in which the forms of contemporary living become spaces and find meanings.
