Green works it out! | From the garden of delights to our daily greenery 1980-2014
Il verde risolve! | Dal giardino delle delizie al nostro verde quotidiano 1980-2014
The architecture insists on building houses, streets, neighbourhoods, cities introducing the greenery in the built-up areas, meant as an element capable of accomplishing or "performing" various functions. The architecture always forgets that greenery, unlike the built-up areas, has its own life and its own development and always got i better of it throughout time.
Analysing vegetation in its natural and impromptu expansion in the urban context, Ugo La Pietra reflects on these spontaneous displays, developing them and trying to bring spontaneity back in a new urban design vision. Green works it out! gathers together the illustrations made by Ugo La Pietra since the 1980s which show the series of projects and ideas that stem from the observation of green urban space, together with a prologue written by Riccardo Zelatore and an introduction by Marco Meneguzzo.
