Additional comments

The MODSCAPES project will be carried out through a collaboration between five academic partners: Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) – HABITER research center at the Faculty of Architecture La Cambre-Horta; Politecnico di Milano (Italy): ABC dept. of Architecture, Built Environment and Construction Engineering; CESAP – Cooperativa de Ensino Superior Artística do Porto (Portugal): CEAA – Centro de Estudos Arnaldo Araújo [Arnaldo Araújo Research Centre]; TUBerlin (Germany): Habitat Unit / Chair of International Urbanism and Design – Institute of Architecture, Faculty IV Planning Building Environment; EMU - Estonian University of Life Sciences, Tartu (Estonia): Institute of Agricultural and Environmental Science, dept. of Landscape Architecture. The academic partners are supported by four non-academic partners: DoCoMoMo International – Documentation and Conservation of buildings, sites and neighbourhoods of the Modern Movement (Lisbon, Portugal); ECLAS European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools (Vienna, Austria); CIVILSCAPE (Bonn, Germany).

MODSCAPES deals with rural landscapes produced by large-scale agricultural development and colonization schemes planned in the 20th century throughout Europe and beyond. Conceived in different political and ideological contexts, such schemes were pivotal both to nation-building and state-building policies as to the modernization of the countryside. They provided a testing ground for the ideas and tools of environmental and social scientists, architects, engineers, planners, landscape architects and artists, which converged around a shared challenge. Their implementation produced new rural landscapes which have seldom been considered as a transnational research topic. Hence, MODSCAPES aims to raise awareness around this largely underestimated shared cultural heritage which stands today as a tangible evidence of recent European history.

MODSCAPES is carried out by a team gathering expertise in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, planning, art history and anthropology. It is led by five experienced individual investigators, with the support of four associated partners of international relevance in their specific areas of activities. MODSCAPES combines research-driven and bottom-up participatory activities based on the collection, treatment, elaboration, and critical discussion of visual data and multiple narratives regarding 10 case studies located in 7 UE- and 3 non-UE neighbouring countries. Introducing the concept of landscape as a unifying paradigm for a trans-disciplinary approach to the topic’s tangible (the built environment) and intangible legacies (the related cultural and socio-political contexts), this project aims to establish its European relevance and also to bridge research, practice and policies. Hence, it aspires to test its outcomes against the current challenges faced by modern rural landscapes as a resource for future “reflective societies” and “inclusive environments”. MODSCAPES’ various deliverables and activities engage and target diversified audiences to enable a better understanding of the common patterns and rich diversities which shaped our national identities and may help to support shared European narratives.

The successful candidate will integrate the CEAA-ESAP/CESAP team, coordinated by Prof. Maria Helena Maia, which deals with two case studies (Portugal and Spanish Tajo river basin).

From a methodological point of view, the candidate will contribute to the CEAA-ESAP/CESAP team’s specific lead and co-lead on two work packages and will also collect data necessary for other work packages.
