What is the role of architecture when enhancing tourism in a region?

How can the architect’s vision help reactivate under performing regions, considering the relationship between design, heritage, tourism and landscape?

How can design’s architectural and landscape processes contribute to the reinvention of marginal areas, reflect upon the sense of place and the needs expressed by visitors, while prioritising the region’s aims and its inhabitants?


The book attempts to answer these questions, by proposing interpretations and methodologies for architectural intervention.
