Publisher's Comments

Is it possible, today, to focus again on the FORM of city and territory? What does it means, and more, what does it imply, to reconsider the MORPHOLOGICAL DIMENSION in designing the contemporary built environment? Facing the far-reaching transformations of territory in the last years - which break the incremental mechanism of the sprawl, because of different modes, sizes, scalar ratios being involved - and facing, at the same time, the crisis of an essentially rule-based urban planning, it seems necessary to think over the issue of the ARCHITECTURE of the GRANDE SCALA [great scale], at the intersection between settlement structures, infrastructural grids and the morphology of territorial substrata.
