Revealing hidden landscapesLANDSCAPE PROJECT
Human patterns recognition, hidden landscape values discovery, diagnosis and fragility analysis, productive social and economic proposals / Tarragona, Spain
After a general approach to Camp de Tarragona, where there are geometrical predominance lines (produced by slopes, radial growths, paths, etc.) and lines of trees or vegetal ruins, a general classification is made dividing the territory in big agricultural areas by patterns. According to common characteristics, these areas are divided in terms of fragility and proximity to other uses (with growing power).
From this macro vision, where the area can be chosen, the analysis gets more precise and focused. The more interesting zones are the ones with the greatest agricultural richness, but fragile due to their size and in danger of disappearing because of future industrial and airport extensions.
The project area is, then, an area with vegetal ruins and big diversity of crops, but will be, in some years’ time, destroyed by the enlargement of the airport and the finishing of the industrial zone located between Reus and Constantí.
The studied area is situated in the triangle formed by three cities: Reus, Constantí and Pobla de Mafumet and Morell. In terms of infrastructures, we can find rural-scale and inter-municipal connections, but big-scale as well: airport, train, and the close highway. However, some conflicts and disconnections are produced between these two scales.
