Landscape challenges in Lucca
- Monastery of St. Augustin: This ex monastery can be seen as a key case study at a European scale. Religious communities hold a wide heritage of material goods and intangible memories, yet it’s projected that around 60% of monasteries in Italy will be abandoned within the next ten years due to vocational deficiency. It’s readily apparent how the dismissed heritage of religious communities will soon become an urgent topic in landscape planning. Can a monastic fence become the training ground for a democratic development? Is it possible to analyse a monastery as a common good and fulfill the combined needs of the stakeholders’ community with theses spaces? Moreover, would this process be self sustainable over the long term?
This intensive program aims to develop new visions for a regeneration process through the participatory involvement of program participants and local stakeholders.
