Free lands are precisely filled up with a pattern of suburban housing with gardens, factories style farms and other low density elements. By clear form of organization IDENTITY has been lost. It is possible to reconsider this situation of land use, density and refilling the texture. Is it possible to soak up the program as a sponge, mix it in order to save our pastoral landscape before being totally suburbanized? Can we imagine that environment that we know could be broken down and reconsider again? How could it look like? Doing it we feel claustrophobic and all the actions that we take as take care about our gardens or fence our plots is it not a social pression and rules that we are not able to change? So what if the whole area would soak up the program of camping into it? How can we do that? Let’s imagine possibilities and impossibilities of these extremes to discover prospects and limitations. To create a porous city which could absorb camping facilities inside it, we have to define a space where this process could take place. Manage a comfort for permanent habitants and temporary ones in order to mix these two groups together. Level of intimacy is changing according to location of the house, vegetation or pathway on the plot. By a simple method of imposing a grid on the plan we can easly define it. A scale is based on 5 level steps of intimacy. We can assume that from 4 to 5 is possible to apply the new facilities. Each area /camping & residential/ works in a completely different way. Boundaries such as physical and psychical take different meaning and as well expectations are not the same, time of land use and tolerance of people for activities. Also interaction between people are different than on camping sites because here inhabitants have to SHARE facilities such as showers, toilets, garbage disposals or bonfire places. It means they have to communicate and boundaries are not boundaries similar to the residential area. This quality we could impose. To check how to do that to make it comfortable we examined various of possibilities how the tent, car or caravan could be placed, new extension of the house, by new natural boundaries/ or even how people could share their houses. This is a micro-strategy for each neighbourhood to create small,village like-, places and distribute centres into the city. Then we could think about bigger scale interventions as changing the whole city into a walkable area with imposing green areas /green fingers strategy/. This could be a new fashion: ECO-TOURISM, where we could integrate temporary inhabitants with permanent inhabitants and where both have benefits. THE END
