How is the alpine urban countryside modified by widespread industrial production? How can the productive mikrokosmos be reinforced as a system into complex orographic contexts? What design devices can be used to rethink the existing situations? The book explores the industrial production areas scattered in the valley floors by presenting a case study in the Trentino Alto Adige region. Through the knowledge of spaces, the reinterpretation of relationships with the lands' morphology, the reading of environmental critical issue, the study discovers strategies, rules and design practices to reintegrate landscape and ecology as potential resources into mountainous industrial areas.
