Formatted Abstract/Summary
The experimental policy process of Auroville, a city planned in 60’s by the French architect Roger Anger in the proximity of Puducherry (South India) and endorsed by the UNESCO ever since, has enabled a state of affairs which in our opinion matches the new perspectives on urban ecology aimed at this conference. A straight forward planning approach tightened by its utopian aims has resulted in a regenerated landscape (reforestation, water conservation and alternative farming are Auroville’s main achievements and assets) ready to welcome now an alternative way of urban living. This paper aims to illustrate how this sought new interface between city, nature and people can expand its fi eld of action from the conventional urban setting into patches of land in great demand for regeneration such as, brown-fields, underutilized territories and barren lands.
