Changing climatic and environmental conditions induce a gradual change in the habits and behaviour of plant communities; plants migrate, aggregate and reorganize with consciousness and foresight to regain the conditions of survival. Similarly, landscape design changes and evolves in form and purpose, advocating new and unusual forms of urban spaces that attempt to combine aesthetic and ecological values. Sometimes taming spontaneity, at other times recreating it, the project proposes new and unprecedented habitats and conveys important cultural values: plants are entrusted with the task of narrating the contents most closely related to life and change.
