Global Energy Landscapes: Evolutionary Process of Infrastructures in New Territories: The Patagonia Case

By Stefano Romagnoli, Master of Landscape Architecture Candidate, 2019    

Infrastructures are an intrinsically human and cultural phenomenon, which have occurred for millennia to sustain civilizations of many scales and levels of technology. “Global Energy Landscapes” is an essay on the new capabilities and responsibilities of man-made logistics to intervene with the planet’s resources in the new century. It is an interdisciplinary study of the environmental, territorial, economic, and social impact of the new infrastructures that profess to enhance the resources of the planet, exploring the levels of appropriation of the world’s great natural reserves or “global gardens,” antagonistic to the growth and urban concentrations in globalized, hyperdense cities.
