La difícil trayectoria de la sostenibilidad: Ideologías en conflicto en la producción del espacio urbano


  • Ignacio San Martín Universidad del Estado de Arizona


Palabras clave:

paisaje cultural, paisaje vernáculo americano, ideología, sistema de valores, sostenibilidad, universalización


Ninguna cultura puede asumir y absorber el choque de la civilización moderna y la paradoja de cómo modernizarse y volver a las raíces. Este texto investiga las interpretaciones de los nuevos paisajes culturales, entre la inevitabilidad de perder el paisaje tradicional por efecto del cambio cultural, y las nuevas posibilidades de intervención. El autor trata dos cuestiones candentes: las investigaciones de los paisajes culturales como guía para nuevas intervenciones sostenibles; y el significado de la tensión entre el paisaje cultural ideal de la sociedad enfrentado con el paisaje real. Es necesario un nuevo sistema de valores e implicaciones, una ideología ligada a la práctica y basada en el saber ecológico, para evitar la creación de un paisaje cultural moderno excesivamente transitorio, y con objeto de guiar intervenciones regeneradoras y sostenibles en el territorio.
