i mean part of a new a forts in luxembourg to develop and direction
00:00:05
of protection of studies uh and what is particular to this project
00:00:09
and ease that and it tries to bring various case together fires case
00:00:14
in the production of the built environment with the understanding of that
00:00:17
environments for the program is called headmaster eh in
00:00:21
architecture european organisation and localisation and you
00:00:25
get immediately this idea of ten same thing you know the the boundaries between states
00:00:30
and so and we just started the september and we're all show just starting with
00:00:36
this a new research an initiative uh and i was just there someday actions
00:00:42
this research imported try to give you an initial portraits there about the region of luxembourg
00:00:51
which
00:00:55
it's it's a bit as good but it's fine okay yeah that's fine so yeah yeah yeah
00:01:04
i think i am i couldn't find of a better way of uh introducing we say
00:01:08
the elf and turned scarlet interpretation off after detector van and uh going back
00:01:15
it when nancy picked why actually tried to design and the world so a
00:01:19
reference for this project and actually useful reference and that i'm trying to
00:01:23
revisit uh is the work of a of an architect and plundered or something
00:01:28
that looks you have from the from the sixties and about and
00:01:33
he terminal points what he courted human open which was actually a in in fort it
00:01:38
to understand and know the park turns yeah off and a density that they were
00:01:43
correct arising minimisation dynamics uh could be saved it meaningfully n. b. c.'s earned isn't
00:01:50
snapshot and from or a german opens in europe meaning can be so now
00:01:55
and diffusing hand right c. three but would emerge and europe yet but what is
00:02:01
interesting about about this project and why and i use it as a reference
00:02:05
it's basically two things at first of all if the idea that uh
00:02:10
this say the physical shape of things you know the country physical
00:02:13
configuration of the built environment a is a really important elements in
00:02:19
oregon rising life something that we that we often forget especially
00:02:23
after they the failed experiments in the sixties like that and the second is that
00:02:28
and monday station is also a pool and for at savings and ecological balance and then yeah
00:02:36
i think it's like a it does have one moment eh here that they that they have when whenever
00:02:41
i'm andy with this project because at first of all
00:02:43
i see that always concerned about yeah and
00:02:49
we're focusing for example and the increasing in partly from out of the plan and how
00:02:53
to best and manage these heavier quite you know aunt and say i second and
00:03:00
their approach the scientific let's say up roads and they're very rational
00:03:06
approach to these issues that is all should do they have a prominent
00:03:10
and it is also dating back and to this time actually initially
00:03:15
yeah when i was a investigating this project i also wanted to i always wanted to be visited there within the tools
00:03:20
that we have today with all the u. two judges based on information that special data modelling techniques and there
00:03:27
yeah it so yes this is eventually and the global in months or
00:03:32
of the of the prototype of the project and the but and
00:03:37
what idealised and it was that a someone and
00:03:41
even the patient yeah that where an
00:03:45
inherent to this approach uh of the sixties and are still very resistance today and
00:03:52
i think that the based the most obvious and way too so it did you uh is
00:03:56
that the whole project this whole project of us how organisations do to be saved on
00:04:00
the planet it was based on this idea that society has a day now make it to
00:04:06
go to expand not perform cities and they'll nature is offering something like an envelope
00:04:12
sustainability associated with ability envelope them away or a you know these development
00:04:18
would be confined or wait it would be allowed to develop more
00:04:22
individual and the for the logically the way this product was designed
00:04:26
it was by blinking with these two uh elements together
00:04:30
so one element was the dynamics of society another element it
00:04:34
was the envelope yeah that need to provide and
00:04:39
and this is basically the envelope classification of land uh based
00:04:43
on there and capabilities to inhabit it uh in
00:04:46
an optimal ways and combining these two you would actually end up with the say it like that and
00:04:53
surprisingly yeah i mean although in at an intellectual level and at the conceptual level a we
00:05:00
have a long ten saying that all of these debates about the difficulty maybe between
00:05:03
society in nature eh at the at the level of uh the protection of your special
00:05:09
no well it's a it's actually a expedient yeah if a persistent problem okay so
00:05:16
initially eh my disappointment was that all these guys with zero tools with not computers
00:05:22
a with some quantitative information eh the much more than somehow what obviously in
00:05:28
a limited way maybe it would make some sense with the contemporary tools they with
00:05:33
all this proliferation of just based on information that we have with yes
00:05:36
remote sensing call this abundance of they'd uh it would make sense to you physically it's a knowing the problem
00:05:42
for the past and the reason i say that i was disappointed is that they realised that although
00:05:47
want at the conceptual intellectual level it we have been you know we'll be owns a basic automate a
00:05:54
if you're wasting your spatial information is organised eh
00:05:57
deflects eh these limitations of society in each
00:06:02
uh in this project in a way has in the two levels one used to explore with with this idea
00:06:09
of landscapes a tentative classification show displays information so instead
00:06:13
of having it eh as separate layers data combined
00:06:17
them together uh in actual landscapes that also if like the physical configuration of things uh and the second
00:06:22
is just to see how these things play out in the case of like some work with actually
00:06:28
eh idea nice offers a very good example eh of um
00:06:32
but seeing and the problems that sets interpretations they can create
00:06:40
okay so uh you might say that population growth and you know this then i'm totally station yeah i'm not an
00:06:46
issue for you up maybe today and uh but uh in fact if you look yeah at the end
00:06:53
a population uh fluctuations a on the european continent you see that it's not
00:06:59
like a this static idea that we have that tell you know
00:07:02
you hope is not about missing any more information is not really going the lebanese racial problems are
00:07:08
you know in the west africa or in southeast asia and it kind of like that
00:07:12
obviously a the the intensity of these problems elsewhere might be might so much bigger but being
00:07:17
beat in europe we're still facing some seed use a population movements uh in this market
00:07:24
so's anna in in orange or in red heavy areas and we it's a population is going
00:07:30
to engine blew a the areas in weeds a population is actually sinking a during
00:07:36
the past almost to date it's a and you can see several sports a big highlighted
00:07:41
obviously some accommodations are going some accommodations are losing population to the suburbs but mostly
00:07:48
what you can see eases sift it off population from the
00:07:53
east to the waste into that percentage up right
00:07:58
a and i usually mean they do this a region that you know you see parties uh on the bottom left and
00:08:04
you see uh the flemish diamond on the north a somewhere in the need to uh you also see yeah
00:08:11
i don't ah nice to have a pointer someone the needle in the middle of a of a black
00:08:16
hole uh use the pink spots here and not answerable to end this is like some work
00:08:23
so like somebody's like a tiny a pain can't really uh i mean not so tiny as other ones like um the
00:08:29
cattle at monaco or a a mile to what's it like that but uh indeed it's quite small uh especially
00:08:36
and in relation to the impact that it has a and b.
00:08:40
packed is actually categorised by to fix a by a who
00:08:44
will just seeing that three in the demographic landscape and we should just seen at three in the economic landscape so
00:08:51
you can see here the the growth rate the population growth rate in europe and luxembourg is it
00:08:56
by far and i i hate of any other country almost without blood and the ratio
00:09:02
an impartial you can see a the g. d. p. go fate
00:09:06
which is also quite right considering a that the other countries
00:09:10
in front of the tired like the economy that that not has developed a so that is like a in a
00:09:17
single thing the economic and demographic landscape and which is also reflected
00:09:21
at the global label with with lex and we haven't
00:09:23
looked at the highest g. d. p. per capita and walked into some discrepancies with that with the statistical them
00:09:30
eh interpretation but we can discuss about that later you know and
00:09:36
in addition to that in it like somebody's all shows you the cementing the
00:09:40
ecological landscape having one of the the highest and ecological footprints in the
00:09:47
world even i hid of count is like that but we all know how
00:09:51
unsustainable the use of uh of course if you to this country
00:09:55
print this actually has a lot to do with the other one is asian patent it and escape from an easy shun like simple
00:10:03
and a lot of it as you can see is footprint related to c. o. two emissions
00:10:08
now eh there that the way yeah yeah i want to present uh the whole situation there is like as a
00:10:14
bad books and because you can see luxembourg popping up in all of these categories like that that that is
00:10:20
something very things going on there but actually if you look at the landscape it feels like nothing is going
00:10:27
on there and you cannot really beat through the typical interpretations of landscape that we have eh so one
00:10:34
one element that we you know we always associate with organisation of
00:10:38
corporate relation things of the this is a population is it
00:10:41
more in europe if you see the the black hole here and this is what like somebody's uh if you go closer
00:10:48
eh you can see that this population eh that we're talking about is actually not
00:10:54
really creating such a dense environment so luxembourg is here in the sport
00:11:01
it's not actually eh it feels that everyone is very much concerned
00:11:05
about the population growing but in fact they can't they
00:11:08
is very sparsely populated with especially you put it next one other small
00:11:13
countries like martha a it's like a even if this thing
00:11:17
he's not populate i mean it's not densely populated all in speed feels that that is a lot of change or
00:11:26
and this is how the population distribution looks i either can't issue basically you have the c.
00:11:31
d. here you have some surroundings i settlements around n. mining region and and you have
00:11:38
eh eh brody region which is also quite sparsely populated
00:11:44
it but in the the the pretending that going uh and it's going to not do
00:11:49
you know natural don't but obviously through a migration as we saw in the mop
00:11:54
eh nth eh one way to understand it why this population
00:11:59
that is going to meet invisible used to associate like
00:12:02
simple give it like in geneva with a blow the region within it we it within with this position
00:12:08
so the brother region is basically and eh
00:12:14
the senate this context and that is being saved by the
00:12:18
presence of this of this uh symmetry and and one
00:12:22
obvious anyway that this happens ease through commuting patent it in and out of the city so i'm like if
00:12:28
it were case that we show that is still a place in ticket agent here you have indeed several supplements but
00:12:34
they've the pardon of function is actually completely a motion
00:12:38
take so everyone is going in and out eh
00:12:42
in luxembourg and how flexible so only one point is actually a that tractor point
00:12:47
not so yeah eh nth dishwasher starch eh explaining
00:12:53
why also these numbers that we discussed at a bit off because think about it when you calculate
00:12:59
the d. p. or when you calculate the ecological footprint you basically calculate or the the
00:13:03
actions will always back in then you divide it without relations however but the position that is
00:13:09
actually they existed in these latter how it is actually eh fifty percent or less
00:13:15
than the population is about this activating this let's get with the meeting visible in the typical way
00:13:21
that we're interested population right with like nine type population so whenever you see population statistics it
00:13:27
is always reflecting would be politely things not where people according to the people are not aware they
00:13:32
are going but where the raw that how just how right so one discrepancy is that
00:13:40
uh_huh and what actually the flows of population somehow follow a pattern of
00:13:45
accessibility in so you can see inaccessible diagram at around and flexible
00:13:51
and this is the relation of their of the actual population of like some work
00:13:56
ain't even owns the population a coming in and out of the city every day
00:14:03
and this other person that's so it's almost thirty percent twenty five to
00:14:07
thirty percent of privilege so i wanted to see that it is
00:14:10
designed a four at around a eight hundred thousand people but only has
00:14:15
a population of about five hundred or six hundred thousand people
00:14:20
now in addition to to the population question in very much related to it and actually the shores
00:14:26
of this button a ease the interpretation of the landscape so similar it to the division
00:14:32
operation this is a mop showing if the concentration of a of a of beat spaces and
00:14:37
be a cousin settlements in europe and that you you you you see them up so
00:14:44
it like simple is again like in the black all around the major recommendations that define the you know the
00:14:51
core the about nice court of your right or what is considered to be run its course of europe
00:14:58
and if you look at their that once you've actually a you bid he's he eh the settlements
00:15:04
eh act and show this is basically this with the with the city of one
00:15:07
hundred thousand eh these these uh these and complex of cities in the south
00:15:15
so once you hit actually how it looks usage basically like
00:15:19
like a a quite contains a small right now or
00:15:25
in these activities and my point here being that eh
00:15:30
looking at the landscape you can barely in favour of the intensity that is
00:15:34
happening there and one of the decisions is actually eh how this
00:15:38
information is translated into your spatial data end i have here a typical
00:15:44
data set that souls land use and land cover the coding
00:15:47
on comedy does that uh which is actually based like all the land
00:15:52
cover they doesn't seem that basically three categories you know a band
00:15:55
things i've deficient comes like that things which is like of this
00:15:59
part agriculture end then for history and nature and did water
00:16:05
eh and what we're concerned that whenever we're talking about the relation it'll be fine
00:16:10
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
00:16:18
it looks something like that so we we take out all the dead spots another
00:16:22
purpose ports into what is the meaning is not supposed to be about right
00:16:28
uh and if you if you continue looking at these and you fall historically what is happening
00:16:32
you see that basically v. m. and it is not expensive so the populations going
00:16:38
computers are going to the beach going a the eminent is basically not
00:16:42
really going after the two thousand ten it's like stopped here
00:16:46
to do a lot because they developed of infrastructure but then again that's relatively the same for three to make the same
00:16:52
everything you know basically started it is in here you can see the expansion elevate sorry i would
00:16:59
just go through it just showing that the forest is basically a covering instead of um
00:17:05
the mean isn't eh and we can summarise this idea and through
00:17:11
every a fort eh to eh p. z. a. of nature for this interpretation that basically what we
00:17:19
want to do is preserve natural landscapes 'cause if i did catch should not allow development
00:17:23
the not so we're back to beat in this map of looks have is that you know
00:17:27
you have the envelope of nature that you have the envelope that the dynamics of
00:17:31
society one is like trying to weed out in t. v. land these two so forth in
00:17:37
agriculture you basically end up with an envelope of potential development within facts in the case
00:17:42
of like simple it is very very ideal because it forced the areas and agricultural areas
00:17:49
that excluded from development so whatever is for us to all agriculture cannot be developed
00:17:55
which means that if you want all these areas you end up with the potential development area always always
00:18:02
it is that could be developed potentially with basically not it he wants to that to this development
00:18:07
envelope eh the actual speculation that emerges out of the
00:18:11
state speculation then you have an explanation why no
00:18:14
one can basically afford leave their everyone has to come a and one week interpret these basically
00:18:21
easily can afford to pay yeah maintain the p. z. a. of some sort of a given
00:18:27
ecology so very and literal interpretation of having you
00:18:32
know basically natural environment and basically offset
00:18:36
all the ecological cost under the social cost due on the bothers with again because by the script the questions get right
00:18:43
uh and i didn't these these that i'm kind of summarise this piece of settings
00:18:48
of social and ecological course because you can see a the cops sorry
00:18:52
you can see the g. d. p. growth a you can see the population growth with the result that asians right so there it
00:18:59
the population is keeps going up around two point five percent a
00:19:03
bath we're not expanding and you're not expanding the infrastructure
00:19:08
i and you keep expecting that you can have golf without the bunnies action right which basically means that
00:19:15
you're just expecting that you will be able to contain usually offset eh social and ecological costs
00:19:22
yeah young's your boundaries and things like for some which also explains you know this huge and
00:19:30
eh c. o. two a footprint and i think i would stop
00:19:35
here because i understand when i think of remotes are
