SPRAWLESCAPES. A comparative study of landscape discourses of urban sprawl

in Sweden and Germany

 

The project analyses planning discourses on urban SPRAWL, a phenomenon that is considered to be an escalating problem in Europe. By focusing on the role of ‘landSCAPE’ in these discourses, the study aims to reveal opportunities to ESCAPE from the currently dominant dichotomised and reductionist approaches to this highly complex and culture-dependent phenomenon.
