Insofar as it is a ‘different’ space the Alps constitute a special ground for experimentation in an attempt to answer some of the central questions in the debate on large scale planning: issues relating to the landscape as an asset, the links between the physical and social context, environmental sustainability, protection of historical and environmental heritage. It is fundamental to reason in terms of methods of transformation that are able to hold together images, designs and dynamics that are different in nature in order to generate ‘inhabited territories’ in the complexity of their values. As is true elsewhere, in an Alpine context the need emerges to consider the question of large scale architecture at the crossroads between the organisation of settlements and the morphologies of the territorial substrate with its set of housing practices and local development policies.

Keywords: Alpine territory; regional planning; housing practices
