The Landscape of Contemporary Infrastructure

Text by Kelly Shannon, Marcel Smets.

The design of infrastructural networks-that is, roads, railways and any system that enables flow within a structure such as a city-is among urban design's foremost tasks. Around the globe, the awareness of enhanced infrastructure fluidity as a catalyst for economic development is rising. The Landscape of Contemporary Infrastructure investigates how infrastructure design determines the organization and flow of the inhabited landscape-as an agency of enhanced mobility, as a design feature contributing to the character of a city and as a sound theoretical approach to a positive experience of collective space. These issues are explored in four chapters that catalogue these approaches, each chapter buttressed with key projects from the world's most important designers in this field, including Arata Isozaki, Paul Andreu, Xaveer De Geyter, Jean Nouvel and Ricardo Bofill. The authors demonstrate how the creative potential of architecture, landscape architecture and urban design is essential to the effective flow of infrastructural networks.

FROM THE BOOK
"Approaching infrastructural design as an integrated project drastically changes the position, contribution, and responsibility of the professional disciplines involved in its creation. Unlike in previous generations when large engineering offices were engaged for the entire management of the building process of infrastructure – from preliminary design to the control of execution drawings, launch of the tender, and follow-up of the contractor/developer – there is now a growing tendency to have multiple disciplines involved from the outset... A cyclical process whereby the renewed interest in spatial quality on the side of public clients has strengthened the position of urban and landscape design, and has produced projects that in turn inspire other public bodies to heighten their ambition for a quality infrastructure, has thus been set in motion. Such a process prompts the new models of contemporary practice."

Kelly Shannon and Marcel Smets, excerpted from The Landscape of Contemporary Infrastructure.
