          Notes on Visual Experimentation in the Contemporary Urban Landscape

        Abstract
        The visual representation of existing qualities of the urban landscape at the scale of proximity was the main objective of the 1 Km2 Well-being research project, developed at the ETH Zurich (Chair of Landscape Architecture) and the EPFL Lausanne (Construction and Conservation Laboratory). The project aimed at identifying the relevance of corporeal and embedded experience in urban landscape, and reconnected with Lynch and Hack’s quest for the meaning of a place. The ‘Visit’ of the place, as the fundamental research operation, allowed students to develop three registers of narration: narrating their own exploration of the site, reporting on the stories of/from the site, and sketching scenarios of the site as the cornerstones of hypothetical future projects and ameliorations. Oscillating between visual representation and site narration, we found a set of differences in ‘proximities’ that qualified and interacted with one another on every site in three fundamental ways. Through the identification of three fundamental modes of well-being, which we named Dwelling, Formation and Atmosphere, we marked out a new theoretical field and analytical strategy with which the specificity of places and new forms of belonging might be better understood.
