Concepts and definitions

Author 1: Andrea

  • Cinematic landscape (Alexa Weik von Mossner, cinematic landscapes, topos 2014, 88)

In film, landscapes can act as symbols to underline a point, make you think of a place or event, or be used to enhance a feeling or mood through its role as "setting" or "backdrop" for the narrative, and it that way also becomes a part of it.

  • Placemaking (Places in the making, MIT,2013)

The practice concerns the deliberate shaping of an environment to facilitate social interaction and improve a community’s quality of life. Stresses the importance of the process of "making" to empower communities.

  • Political style - as a designer (Randy Hester, whose politics, 2005)

There are different types of designers, the blissfully naïve, the savvy naïve, servants, contextualists & catalysts. As a designer you have a political style wether you belong to the blissfully naive, who design with no concern or understanding of larger impacts and connections, or if you belong to the catalysts, who purposely act and design in order to address bigger issues and prompt change.

Author 2: Benoit

  • Local Self-government (European landscape convention, 2000)

This approach recognizes the possibility to the local people to be organized and protect the landscape. This theme appears in the European convention and develops the local power to protected and improve the landscape.

  • Tokenism (Sherry Arnstein, A ladder of citizen participation, 1969)

This is a ladder of the ladder of the participatory process. It is ladder where the participation start to be real. This ladder is divided in 3 parts Informing, consultation placation. That gather 3 steps and each one evolve in the participatory process.

  • River Community (Friends of the Los Angeles River (FoLAR).)

There are different people in different territories which share a common good, the River. That opens a community life which is organized around the river and them people accept to protect the river this is for the common good. This community organizes the life, they promote, the protection around the river.
