This book explores breathing and the planetary atmosphere as intensely lively leitmotifs for the design of an inclusive future in a new climate regime, uncovering intertwinements of societal activities with the air and the atmosphere. With this awareness of entanglement, the deeply performative characteristics of the air,  atmosphere and climate are foregrounded and can be discovered as central agents in the conception and design of our planetary existence. This carefully edited collection brings together renowned authors from various disciplines, and their ideas, observations, and examples inspire us to rethink our forms of social action and design.

The Integral Landscape Project of Palmas, Brazil, acts as transformative base for a thriving future to unfold-for the future urban development and identity of an entire city and its people. By addressing such diverse issues like building neighborhood identity, economic growth and ecologies of changing climates, a pioneering and yet flexible urban strategy should emerge.

This Project proposes a landscape based urban strategy - where landscape systems become the base for negotiating chances and challanges of a vibrant city to unfold.

The Palmas Integral Lanscape Project is then enabling environmental and economic synergies through systematic interaction in addresing local conditions and community - embedded in the global context of changing climates, cultures and economies.
