Lacunas—The Middle Landscape
Routinely dismissed as mere sprawl, the middle landscape is the black hole of recent urbanism, absorbing human energy and resources but seldom revealing the principles of its operation. Besides the recent affirmation for the dense city under the auspice of sustainability, the reality confronts us with a rather complex conurbation and a weak set of planning instruments. The New Dialogues series, moderated by Wolfgang Schäffner und Gunnar Hartmann, invited two key investigators on the subject of the middle landscape, Thomas Sieverts and Lars Lerup, to reexamine our understanding of unregulated cities—their huge potential and difficult problems for the twenty-first-century.“
