i mean part of a new a forts in luxembourg to develop and direction
of protection of studies uh and what is particular to this project
and ease that and it tries to bring various case together fires case
in the production of the built environment with the understanding of that
environments for the program is called headmaster eh in
architecture european organisation and localisation and you
get immediately this idea of ten same thing you know the the boundaries between states
and so and we just started the september and we're all show just starting with
this a new research an initiative uh and i was just there someday actions
this research imported try to give you an initial portraits there about the region of luxembourg
it's it's a bit as good but it's fine okay yeah that's fine so yeah yeah yeah
i think i am i couldn't find of a better way of uh introducing we say
the elf and turned scarlet interpretation off after detector van and uh going back
it when nancy picked why actually tried to design and the world so a
reference for this project and actually useful reference and that i'm trying to
revisit uh is the work of a of an architect and plundered or something
that looks you have from the from the sixties and about and
he terminal points what he courted human open which was actually a in in fort it
to understand and know the park turns yeah off and a density that they were
correct arising minimisation dynamics uh could be saved it meaningfully n. b. c.'s earned isn't
snapshot and from or a german opens in europe meaning can be so now
and diffusing hand right c. three but would emerge and europe yet but what is
interesting about about this project and why and i use it as a reference
it's basically two things at first of all if the idea that uh
this say the physical shape of things you know the country physical
configuration of the built environment a is a really important elements in
oregon rising life something that we that we often forget especially
after they the failed experiments in the sixties like that and the second is that
and monday station is also a pool and for at savings and ecological balance and then yeah
i think it's like a it does have one moment eh here that they that they have when whenever
i'm andy with this project because at first of all
i see that always concerned about yeah and
we're focusing for example and the increasing in partly from out of the plan and how
to best and manage these heavier quite you know aunt and say i second and
their approach the scientific let's say up roads and they're very rational
approach to these issues that is all should do they have a prominent
and it is also dating back and to this time actually initially
yeah when i was a investigating this project i also wanted to i always wanted to be visited there within the tools
that we have today with all the u. two judges based on information that special data modelling techniques and there
yeah it so yes this is eventually and the global in months or
of the of the prototype of the project and the but and
what idealised and it was that a someone and
even the patient yeah that where an
inherent to this approach uh of the sixties and are still very resistance today and
i think that the based the most obvious and way too so it did you uh is
that the whole project this whole project of us how organisations do to be saved on
the planet it was based on this idea that society has a day now make it to
go to expand not perform cities and they'll nature is offering something like an envelope
sustainability associated with ability envelope them away or a you know these development
would be confined or wait it would be allowed to develop more
individual and the for the logically the way this product was designed
it was by blinking with these two uh elements together
so one element was the dynamics of society another element it
was the envelope yeah that need to provide and
and this is basically the envelope classification of land uh based
on there and capabilities to inhabit it uh in
an optimal ways and combining these two you would actually end up with the say it like that and
surprisingly yeah i mean although in at an intellectual level and at the conceptual level a we
have a long ten saying that all of these debates about the difficulty maybe between
society in nature eh at the at the level of uh the protection of your special
no well it's a it's actually a expedient yeah if a persistent problem okay so
initially eh my disappointment was that all these guys with zero tools with not computers
a with some quantitative information eh the much more than somehow what obviously in
a limited way maybe it would make some sense with the contemporary tools they with
all this proliferation of just based on information that we have with yes
remote sensing call this abundance of they'd uh it would make sense to you physically it's a knowing the problem
for the past and the reason i say that i was disappointed is that they realised that although
want at the conceptual intellectual level it we have been you know we'll be owns a basic automate a
if you're wasting your spatial information is organised eh
deflects eh these limitations of society in each
uh in this project in a way has in the two levels one used to explore with with this idea
of landscapes a tentative classification show displays information so instead
of having it eh as separate layers data combined
them together uh in actual landscapes that also if like the physical configuration of things uh and the second
is just to see how these things play out in the case of like some work with actually
eh idea nice offers a very good example eh of um
but seeing and the problems that sets interpretations they can create
okay so uh you might say that population growth and you know this then i'm totally station yeah i'm not an
issue for you up maybe today and uh but uh in fact if you look yeah at the end
a population uh fluctuations a on the european continent you see that it's not
like a this static idea that we have that tell you know
you hope is not about missing any more information is not really going the lebanese racial problems are
you know in the west africa or in southeast asia and it kind of like that
obviously a the the intensity of these problems elsewhere might be might so much bigger but being
beat in europe we're still facing some seed use a population movements uh in this market
so's anna in in orange or in red heavy areas and we it's a population is going
to engine blew a the areas in weeds a population is actually sinking a during
the past almost to date it's a and you can see several sports a big highlighted
obviously some accommodations are going some accommodations are losing population to the suburbs but mostly
what you can see eases sift it off population from the
east to the waste into that percentage up right
a and i usually mean they do this a region that you know you see parties uh on the bottom left and
you see uh the flemish diamond on the north a somewhere in the need to uh you also see yeah
i don't ah nice to have a pointer someone the needle in the middle of a of a black
hole uh use the pink spots here and not answerable to end this is like some work
so like somebody's like a tiny a pain can't really uh i mean not so tiny as other ones like um the
cattle at monaco or a a mile to what's it like that but uh indeed it's quite small uh especially
and in relation to the impact that it has a and b.
packed is actually categorised by to fix a by a who
will just seeing that three in the demographic landscape and we should just seen at three in the economic landscape so
you can see here the the growth rate the population growth rate in europe and luxembourg is it
by far and i i hate of any other country almost without blood and the ratio
an impartial you can see a the g. d. p. go fate
which is also quite right considering a that the other countries
in front of the tired like the economy that that not has developed a so that is like a in a
single thing the economic and demographic landscape and which is also reflected
at the global label with with lex and we haven't
looked at the highest g. d. p. per capita and walked into some discrepancies with that with the statistical them
eh interpretation but we can discuss about that later you know and
in addition to that in it like somebody's all shows you the cementing the
ecological landscape having one of the the highest and ecological footprints in the
world even i hid of count is like that but we all know how
unsustainable the use of uh of course if you to this country
print this actually has a lot to do with the other one is asian patent it and escape from an easy shun like simple
and a lot of it as you can see is footprint related to c. o. two emissions
now eh there that the way yeah yeah i want to present uh the whole situation there is like as a
bad books and because you can see luxembourg popping up in all of these categories like that that that is
something very things going on there but actually if you look at the landscape it feels like nothing is going
on there and you cannot really beat through the typical interpretations of landscape that we have eh so one
one element that we you know we always associate with organisation of
corporate relation things of the this is a population is it
more in europe if you see the the black hole here and this is what like somebody's uh if you go closer
eh you can see that this population eh that we're talking about is actually not
really creating such a dense environment so luxembourg is here in the sport
it's not actually eh it feels that everyone is very much concerned
about the population growing but in fact they can't they
is very sparsely populated with especially you put it next one other small
countries like martha a it's like a even if this thing
he's not populate i mean it's not densely populated all in speed feels that that is a lot of change or
and this is how the population distribution looks i either can't issue basically you have the c.
d. here you have some surroundings i settlements around n. mining region and and you have
eh eh brody region which is also quite sparsely populated
it but in the the the pretending that going uh and it's going to not do
you know natural don't but obviously through a migration as we saw in the mop
eh nth eh one way to understand it why this population
that is going to meet invisible used to associate like
simple give it like in geneva with a blow the region within it we it within with this position
so the brother region is basically and eh
the senate this context and that is being saved by the
presence of this of this uh symmetry and and one
obvious anyway that this happens ease through commuting patent it in and out of the city so i'm like if
it were case that we show that is still a place in ticket agent here you have indeed several supplements but
they've the pardon of function is actually completely a motion
take so everyone is going in and out eh
in luxembourg and how flexible so only one point is actually a that tractor point
not so yeah eh nth dishwasher starch eh explaining
why also these numbers that we discussed at a bit off because think about it when you calculate
the d. p. or when you calculate the ecological footprint you basically calculate or the the
actions will always back in then you divide it without relations however but the position that is
actually they existed in these latter how it is actually eh fifty percent or less
than the population is about this activating this let's get with the meeting visible in the typical way
that we're interested population right with like nine type population so whenever you see population statistics it
is always reflecting would be politely things not where people according to the people are not aware they
are going but where the raw that how just how right so one discrepancy is that
uh_huh and what actually the flows of population somehow follow a pattern of
accessibility in so you can see inaccessible diagram at around and flexible
and this is the relation of their of the actual population of like some work
ain't even owns the population a coming in and out of the city every day
and this other person that's so it's almost thirty percent twenty five to
thirty percent of privilege so i wanted to see that it is
designed a four at around a eight hundred thousand people but only has
a population of about five hundred or six hundred thousand people
now in addition to to the population question in very much related to it and actually the shores
of this button a ease the interpretation of the landscape so similar it to the division
operation this is a mop showing if the concentration of a of a of beat spaces and
be a cousin settlements in europe and that you you you you see them up so
it like simple is again like in the black all around the major recommendations that define the you know the
core the about nice court of your right or what is considered to be run its course of europe
and if you look at their that once you've actually a you bid he's he eh the settlements
eh act and show this is basically this with the with the city of one
hundred thousand eh these these uh these and complex of cities in the south
so once you hit actually how it looks usage basically like
like a a quite contains a small right now or
in these activities and my point here being that eh
looking at the landscape you can barely in favour of the intensity that is
happening there and one of the decisions is actually eh how this
information is translated into your spatial data end i have here a typical
data set that souls land use and land cover the coding
on comedy does that uh which is actually based like all the land
cover they doesn't seem that basically three categories you know a band
things i've deficient comes like that things which is like of this
part agriculture end then for history and nature and did water
eh and what we're concerned that whenever we're talking about the relation it'll be fine
in all these things right the f. t. v. c. l. things that have to do with this site i ended up in the mountains
it looks something like that so we we take out all the dead spots another
purpose ports into what is the meaning is not supposed to be about right
uh and if you if you continue looking at these and you fall historically what is happening
you see that basically v. m. and it is not expensive so the populations going
computers are going to the beach going a the eminent is basically not
really going after the two thousand ten it's like stopped here
to do a lot because they developed of infrastructure but then again that's relatively the same for three to make the same
everything you know basically started it is in here you can see the expansion elevate sorry i would
just go through it just showing that the forest is basically a covering instead of um
the mean isn't eh and we can summarise this idea and through
every a fort eh to eh p. z. a. of nature for this interpretation that basically what we
want to do is preserve natural landscapes 'cause if i did catch should not allow development
the not so we're back to beat in this map of looks have is that you know
you have the envelope of nature that you have the envelope that the dynamics of
society one is like trying to weed out in t. v. land these two so forth in
agriculture you basically end up with an envelope of potential development within facts in the case
of like simple it is very very ideal because it forced the areas and agricultural areas
that excluded from development so whatever is for us to all agriculture cannot be developed
which means that if you want all these areas you end up with the potential development area always always
it is that could be developed potentially with basically not it he wants to that to this development
envelope eh the actual speculation that emerges out of the
state speculation then you have an explanation why no
one can basically afford leave their everyone has to come a and one week interpret these basically
easily can afford to pay yeah maintain the p. z. a. of some sort of a given
ecology so very and literal interpretation of having you
know basically natural environment and basically offset
all the ecological cost under the social cost due on the bothers with again because by the script the questions get right
uh and i didn't these these that i'm kind of summarise this piece of settings
of social and ecological course because you can see a the cops sorry
you can see the g. d. p. growth a you can see the population growth with the result that asians right so there it
the population is keeps going up around two point five percent a
bath we're not expanding and you're not expanding the infrastructure
i and you keep expecting that you can have golf without the bunnies action right which basically means that
you're just expecting that you will be able to contain usually offset eh social and ecological costs
yeah young's your boundaries and things like for some which also explains you know this huge and
eh c. o. two a footprint and i think i would stop
here because i understand when i think of remotes are
