LARGE RUR AL LANDSCAPES

ACTORS
ON THE
LANDSCAPE
For a true project to come
to life...it is essential to
mobilize the different
territorial actors - the
potential long term
champions.
AT THE UNIVERSITY of Montreal,
rural landscapes are the focus of a
large body of research which has
resulted not only in a book, but also in
fascinating work on the gently rolling
agricultural landscapes of the region
of Maskoutains. In this section, three
educators discuss their research and
their perspectives for the future of
regional planning and design.
LOUIS-PHILIPPE ROUSSELLEBROSSEAU, acting as a practical
training officer and research officer,
collaborated with Gérald Domon
and Julie Ruiz on the Maskoutain
landscapes research project.
GÉRALD DOMON is a full professor and
associate science director for the chair
in landscape and environment at the
Université de Montréal.

RURAL LANDSCAPES
COLLECTIVE FORESIGHT
EN_
THE LANDSCAPE CHANGES rapidly;
it is reordered visually and socially just
as quickly. In this fast-moving context,
integrated action on the large landscape
becomes crucial.
A large landscape is not a simple
object within our field of vision, but a
setting comprising actors, their actions,
the perceptions that influence those
actions, and the external pressures (legal,
economic) that shape them. Accordingly,
action taken on a large landscape needs
to be framed as the result of a territorial
dynamic; this multilateral action is
expressed through the project.
It is one thing to know a landscape,
but it is quite another to elevate that
landscape to the status of collective
good and to plan it based on a shared
vision. If we need a basis for a critique
of current regional landscape practices,
it is immediately apparent that many
diagnostics and diagrams are produced
each year without leading to territorial
action - the kind of transformative action
that we can call a project. All too often, we
still associate action on large landscapes
with coercion and regulation.

JULIE RUIZ acted as a researcher at
the CPEUM and, together with Gérald
Domon, Maryse Séguin and François
Lestage, launched the pilot project
"Maskoutain Landscapes: Revealing,
Enhancing and Requalifying".

THE LANDSCAPE FORECAST:
SHIFTING FROM KNOWLEDGE
TO ACTION
For a true project to take shape and
come to life, it is essential to mobilize
the different territorial actors - the
project's potential long-term champions.
There can be many such people: decision
makers, planners, concerned citizens,
farmers, and so on. It is therefore up to the
landscape architect, when in the position
of initiating or executing the process, to
build a bridge between the project and
the stakeholders, helping the community
take ownership of the project. Among all
the available tools, the landscape forecast
appears to be among the most promising.
It entails analyzing trends in locally
valued landscapes in order to develop
a future image of them - a scenario.
The different scenarios produced are
debated in committee, and a consensus
scenario emerges.
Thanks to its visual nature, a landscape
forecast is easily accessible to the
uninitiated, facilitating the work of the
landscape architect. It can cover both
everyday landscapes and iconic ones.
It brings possible futures to the table
