I develop here some arguments of a written essay as an introduction to the book, edited by Cristina and Sara Barbiani Marini entitled Il palinsesto paesaggio e la cultura progettuale (Quodlibet, Macerata, 2011), in which I tried to summarize the teaching and research methods of a large group of teachers from the School in which I have worked for many years, the Università Iuav di Venezia. That essay in turn was inspired by the reading of a book written by Alberto Pérez-Gómez, Built upon Love. Architectural Longing after Ethics and Aesthetics (The MIT Press, Cambridge Massachusetts, 2006).
Keywords: architecture; landscape; palimpsest; space; perception.
