Abstract of dissertation research:From the second half of the Twentieth century the design of memorial spaces has increasingly used the language of landscape architecture, and has thus been successful in coming across to different cultures. The work involves isolating the main elements that constitute the lexical structure of memorials, as well as their comparison and analysis, in order to determine whether they are worthy of the role assigned to them by the designer, and whether they relate correctly to other similar sites. This offers new interpretative keys. The research aims to prove as well how the use of the language and grammar of nature, and therefore of landscape architecture, being our native language, may facilitate, in the construction of contemporary memorials, the stimulation, description, evocation and elicitation of emotions shared by multicultural collectives.
