Description
Mestrado em Arquitectura Paisagista - Instituto Superior de Agronomia On April 3rd 1968, Stanley Kubrick presented in NY, ‹‹2001 Space Odyssey››. As the film followed its course through European movie theatres, dramatic events such as the death of Robert Kennedy engrossed the attention of the western elites, alarmed by the hippy parade and the new feminism. Somewhere in the universe, a few astronauts travelling in a spaceship controlled by supercomputer HAL become aware of the machine’s error/treason. David Bowman will shut it down. However, HAL’s «death» turns out to be the beginning of regeneration. The words «disconnect», «regenerate», «reactivate» detach themselves from the movie and make their way into the present dissertation, where one attempts to undertake a selective journey to the current state of the world (resources, energy, globalization, illegality). Landscape is a reflection of this state of affairs, the visible side of its achievements and set-backs. The present dissertation analyses a concrete case proposing process capable of regenerating ecological processes and redefine relations between occupation and economy. Moreover, the illegal human settlements threatened by the sea create the opportunity to give places a new life and welcome emergent courses.Maybe Kubrik’s landscape is to be found somewhere in these places... a premonitory light briefly intercepting contemporary culture.
