In a increasingly connected world, cities represent dynamic complex systems connected by dynamic complex networks, governed by non-linear dynamics, where resilience is a crucial aspect to manage the fields of ecology, economics, critical infrastructures, and organizational behavior. Resilience frames the issue of system tightness in a non-linear perspective.
Or that, by contrast, of avoiding polarization and concentration, which have proven to be capable of compromising the system.
Walden Architects’s design driven research, developed together with the students of Politecnico di Milano, therefore takes as a case study a portion of the A7 highway, which today, by connecting Milano with Genova, represents the real border between the extended Milanese metropolitan area and the Apennine wilderness.
