Adaptpolis – Beyond urban fragmentation: infrastructure, landscape and territorial design for Lisbon Metropolitan Area is a research project aimed at developing knowledge regarding urban fragmentation and metropolitan regeneration to tackle ongoing socio-economic adjustment, based at the Lisbon School of Architecture of the University of Lisbon.

In order to develop further urban and territorial regeneration strategies, it is our goal to consider and decode the processes behind the multiple phenomena of fragmentation: in the process of urban growth, in the laying of heavy infrastructures, in the disruption of landscape and environmental continuities, in the clashes of everyday’s mobility. With a forward looking perspective, the project’s aims and providing smart combinations between spatial development, network cohesion, landscape regeneration, its financing and alternative land-uses.
