Nowadays, the relation between the elements of the riverscapes has changed. Human ignore the rivers as elements of a highly dynamic ecological system, development corridors and places of social invention and have already transformed them into urbanized landscapes and transport routes for trading purposes. As a result, riverscapes are treated as...

“The ideal is seldom a choice of either/or, but rather the combination of both or all. One dreams of the museum and cabaret, concert hall and ball park within stones’ throw, but it would be as splendid if the mountains, the ocean and the primeval forest were at the doorstep.”- IAN L. McHARG

Japan and the Netherlands have very different physical, historical and cultural contexts but they share a vulnerability to extreme flood related events and have, in both their (relatively) recent pasts, had to recover from such events: be they the floods of 1953 in the Netherlands or the tsunami that hit Japan’s east coast in 2011. This paper...

From the environmental point of view, future mobility (positive) and the change in the hydrological system (negative) are taken as trends from which the urban program needs to develop. This research starts with the conception that the Strategy of te Two Networks (S2N) internalizes a method that could help face the given challenges occurring both...

Sao Paulo, a megacity of almost 11 million inhabitants in its city center, is facing environmental, societal and infrastructural challenges due to its rate of rapid urbanization. The rivers in the Tiete basin reflect the painful truth of unmanageable urban planning and the unawareness of water as a valuable source. The rivers, once the blood...
