OASE 110 - The Project of the Soil
David Peleman (uni.lu - DGEO), Martina Barcelloni-Corte (Université de Liège), Elsbeth Ronner (TUDelft) and Paola Viganò (EPFL/IUAV) have edited the new issue of OASE Journal for Architecture, published in January 2022: The project of the soil / De grond van de kwestie.
Inspired by Bernardo Secchi’s 1986 text ‘Progetto di Suolo’, this issue of OASE makes a critical analysis of how soil – as an intermediary package that connects surface and subsurface – can further connect to the practices of urbanism and urban design. OASE 110 is dedicated to the radical transformation that open space is experiencing and will increasingly experience in the future, in relation to the recognition of soil as a fundamental resource and as a powerful tool to reframe the urban project. This issue of OASE collects a series of ‘insights from the frontlines’, a series of voices testifying to a radical transformation on the border between urbanism and architecture.
