WeLAND
Today, the interpretation of rural and urban spaces depends on arbitrary delimitations based on size and population. The continued production and reproduction of city-model makes difficult to find a physical boundary between the rural and the urban; the differences in habits, attitudes and values are diluted in a socio-political border. 

The process of urbanization is now closer to a qualitative process of colonization; an extension of cultural styles, ways of life and social interaction. Neo-ruralism is something more than a mere return to the village, so responds to its dominant conception of the wild, the natural resources, the landscape and the geographical space.

The world population already exceeds 7,000 million; environmental challenges and resource sustainability compete with the welfare state, comfort and rebuilt quality of life. Agrarian activities lose weight and the rural world becomes an appendix of the urban model (without which nothing can be understood). This originates new landscapes ..

"Modernity led us to think that geographical space is just geometrical, almost topological, and that places were simple locations easily identifiable by GPS coordinate system. But that's is not exactly so, cause the geographical space is an existential place made up of pieces whose tangible materiality is tinged with immaterial and intangible elements that make each place unique and non-transferable"
