Process Cartography VIII

Davos – City of the Alps

As the officially highest city of the Alps, Davos is historically and etymologically characterized by an existential dichotomy between city and landscape. This is exemplarily reflected in place names such as Davos Square, Davos Village or Landscape Davos. 

Even if the urban character of Davos in not negatable, it is hard to grasp: During four days of the year, Davos serves as the center of the global economy; during four months it represents the regional hotspot for winter sports tourism. For the rest of the year, Davos struggles against its fall into oblivion throughout the off-season. In this context, and accelerated through new political provisions, the question about Davos' future development in the transition between city and landscape arises. 

The Semester in Davos is part of the design series Process Carthograpy, which addresses design scenarios for medium size inner-alpine cities in the context of spatial, societal and economic concerns.
