Introduces new strategies, concepts, and approaches in architecture and urban design for fundamental changes towards decarbonization and ecological turnaround.
 
Towards Territorial Transition presents new spatial strategies, concepts, and approaches for shaping large-scale and transnational developments in architecture and urban design towards decarbonization and ecological transition. The contributions investigate interactions between ecological and resource-related systems and landscapes. They also explore potential solutions to address and deal with the dramatic threats posed by climate change and the emerging social crisis.

The book introduces six basic terms of territorial transition—territory, scale, transition, resource, platform, and uncertainty—and visualizes them with spatial strategies elaborated at the École nationale supérieure d’architecture Versailles and at Graz University of Technology. Moreover, it presents a selection of transnational projects of territorial transition, such as Luxembourg in Transition (Luxembourg / France), Grand Genève (Switzerland / France), and Top Noordrand (Belgium).
 
Matthias Armengaud is an architect and founding partner of the Paris-based architecture and urban design firm AWP office for territorial reconfiguration. He is visiting professor at ENSA Versailles and previously taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Berlage Institute at TU Delft.

Aglaée Degros is professor and head of the Institute for Urban Design at Graz University of Technology and an honorary science fellow at the Free University in Brussels. She is also a cofounder of the urban design firm Artgineering in Brussels.
