Architects in urban planning and design are mainly devoted to providing piecemeal, instant, expert-driven solutions rather than systemic, long-term, co-produced ones. Such reductive approach compromises architect?s capacity to guide the transformation of the suburban landscape towards a sustainable city. Against this backdrop, techniques geared towards taking advantage of the inner capacities of the suburban landscape for incrementally increasing urban life should find their place in architects´ curriculums. In this regard, the Regenerating Intermediate Landscape studio of the UIC Barcelona School of Architecture deploys three complementary approaches with significant implications on architectural education: (1) systemic analysis focused on the identification of networks of places with collective meaning; (2) evolutionary analysis addressed to the discernment of regenerative tendencies such as unplanned development of systems of public open spaces; and (3) participatory analysis aimed at propelling communities? involvement in the definition, materialization and maintenance of civic spaces.
