The text aims to present the structure of my research thesis, which title is “Sharing Landscape: beyond the urban-rural dialectic. New productive soils as a form of settlement resilience”. The latter develops according to three macro sections: “SHARING as a new condition of contemporaneity”, “SHARING as a paradigm and interpretative strategy” and “SHARING LANDSCAPE as an operational tool”. The thesis intends to investigate the theme of vertical farms as a resilient and interpretative design tool that could ‘mend’ the 'urban' and 'rural' on a theoretical and physical level.

Keywords: Sharing, fragility, vertical farms
