Operating in the context of the DDr approach, the research starts constructing a precise framework that dialogues with design in a manifold way, going back and forth between the theoretical level and its manifestation in physical experience and design programs. It’s considered crucial the multidisciplinary of the work, being a theme in between different fields of study.
To represent this journey a research map is composed (fig. 1), constantly adapting and changing to host the new findings, like a city or a circuit where everything is interconnected.
The research advancement presented above shows a development in the proposed research also thanks to the recommendations received in the previous CA2RE event held in Ljubljana.
The proposal presented there, at that time at the initial stage, could greatly benefit from the debate and suggestion given by the panel members and the audience.
In particular, were received and implemented enlightening contribution on how to harvest the peculiar biodiversity of railway nature and some reflection on the way we can use technology to deal with it and what information is relevant to feed the Smart city network. It was especially paid attention to the chosen testbed, railyards, with compelling arguments and suggestions and on how to exploit their peculiar “innate” intelligence.
The research moreover aims to build further on this international approach with a planned research stay in the next months, thanks to the idea league scheme, at the chair of Landscape of TU Delft. This will allow to draw a comparison between different scientific background, the dutch and Italian one, allowing also the research to define test beds in the Netherlands.
