r-urban development
tristan da cunha - united kingdom, competition

Tristan da Cunha is the most isolated community in the world, the sustainability of which asks for a late process of modernization. Without the chance to rely on a large budget, the project suggested a different approach to the transformation of the landscape. In particular, a long-term dynamic of low-tech transformation was drafted, by means of which the landscape could gain integrated performances in terms of wind protection, water management, and agricultural productivity. An innovative r-urban environment is thus expected to emerge due to the preservation and development of the socio-natural alliance that characterizes this particular kind of community.
