 Is this Rural?: the new a+t series questions the identity of the territory

The title of this series, IS THIS RURAL?, questions the identity of the largest proportion of territory, that not occupied by cities, that which is out there, that which traditionally used to be known as the countryside.

Are there still differences between urban and rural, or are the boundaries increasingly blurred?

How is architectural design affected by the absence of unequivocal identities?

We have chosen 12 actions and situated them within their environment, taking into consideration territorial and population data in order to find out whether, in accordance with their distance from consolidated urban nuclei and their different degrees of density, they operate in an urban or rural environment.

Distance and density are two parameters which condition the lifestyles of inhabitants and their opportunities to access employment and basic services.

The interventions address the needs of those living out there which can be summarized as:

  • Developing local activity hubs
  • Attracting a stable population
  • Creating local supply chains
  • Enhancing educational and cultural uses.
