Drawing as Design Act: Expressing the Hidden Structure and the Design Perspective of Inner Periphery
Keywords:Inner Areas, Research by Design, Social Cooperatives, Networks, Material/Immaterial
The contribution aims to present an ongoing research work with Confcooperative Abruzzo, about the definition of community design actions within the regional inner area. Moreover, it shows the necessity of a series of devices to report the complex stratification of these territories.
The paper traces the difficulties in describing through mapping these inner peripheries of the Italian central Appennino, pointing out the necessity of representing the complex, often subtle, dynamics and the physical asset of the area. The study displays how understanding these problems and lacks could produce a possibility in which the critical representation of the territory can become a methodological project through an interscalar point of view, so working at different scales of analysis.
Finally, the illustration of some study drawings highlights how the territorial interpretation of inner territories could fore-see design actions, recognizing the intrinsic structure of these areas, overlapping tangible and intangible networks.
