POLI-TECH STORIES The Politecnico di Milano
The Politecnico di Milano meets the Philippine Italian Association
Through its professors, the Politecnico tells stories of polytechnic culture: stories of science, technology and creativity, of the achievements of its great masters, of future visions.
Sara Protasoni, prof. of Landscape Architecture
In recent years, urged on by environmentalism and global ecological awareness, landscape architecture has begun to demonstrate its fundamental role not only in defining beautiful and efficient places to live, but also in guaranteeing the continuity of many eco-system services in the built environment that are crucial to primary processes, such as normalising the carbon and nutrient cycle, adapting to and mitigating climate change, capturing and purifying pollutants, filtering fresh water and combating desertification phenomena. This new global ecological vision, which is indispensable for better clarifying the ethical and technical commitment to environmental issues, is now even more urgently required by the proliferation of crises (including the Covid19 pandemic) in different regions of the planet that call for transformative action. The conference will present examples of the new commitment of landscape design to address the contemporary ecological crisis.
