Walking attaches special meaning to the landscape and for this reason the issue involves more and more fields of knowledge. Tthe spatial disciplines, such as architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, curiously are not yet sufficiently focusing on this topic and on the clear relationships between walking, pedestrian mobility planning and making landscape. Linearscape tries to define the meaning of pathway: as line, as artwork, as landscape design. It is a design-oriented research that provides some reflections addressed to all the “actors” of the landscape transformations, which are involved on the mobility planning, but the interdisciplinary approach of this paper wants to attract the interest of a wider scientific world.
