Abstract

In this paper, the authors explore the vernacular landscape concept in Europe in the XXIst century in order to identify its potential role in contemporary landscape design and planning. Methodologically, this exploration is developed through a systematic study of the semantic evolution of the “vernacular landscape” concept in relation to other highly related concepts and through the incorporation of new dimensions or approaches to the vernacular phenomena provided by social and landscape sciences. As a conclusion, a potential definition for the vernacular landscape concept is proposed.
