Landscape Ways Of Intervention Used In Reconversion Of Disused Old Defense Structures

Rusu Sorina-Georgiana


Because of the current world mutations, national security provides large complexity and requires new designing solutions for: security challenges, military technology, strategies and tactics, merging of structures, methods, techniques and technologies concerning security challenges, need for responding to social constraints (democratic rights, law of war), and attempts to surpass the opponent / enemy / partner, etc. So, in order to reconvert abandoned military areas, which were previously restricted (restricted areas) but currently passing transformation processes, we must consider the intervention both within and outside of a well-defined system. Therefore, we have to work inside and outside of the military system, as well as on the boundaries of hard-shaped structures. Camouflage is not only instructive for military practitioners’ intent on developing their skills, but also is interesting and entertaining means for much wider audience. Two case studies used as examples reveal the possibility that camouflage pattern concept may offer the effects that prove the chance of using camouflage as a scientific, designing and planning landscape tool. Results of the case studies indicate the importance and possibility of intervention integrated into the landscape by combining military means and elements of urban planning, and regulation specific to these types of functions.
