Urbanscape Emanation vs. Types of Landscape

Part of the The Urban Book Series book series (UBS)


Emanation is the effect that any system has on its environment. Emanation is an emission that generates an act of emitting, causing something to flow forth.The concept of urban emanation is seen as the impact of the city system on its own environment. The design models are associative landscape, walkspace, soundscape and touristscape, all of them forming high quality of urban lifescape.The design mode of a city is the choreography of motion, visual illusions and soundscape anticipation. The aim is to create a paradigm that is independent of location, content, scale, time and technology. It presents a network of key terms and concepts. It takes into account the context and program, and the consequence is a quality lifescape.
