Morphology describes the transport of cultural contents of consciousness, which find their expression repeatedly in various but similar natures. In our opinion a specific pattern reveals itself with closer examination of the existing settlement structures in Feldmoching as an expression of historical settlement expansion in the interwar or post-war years. The long and narrow parcels of land originally adjoining the back of farmhouses were released for building purposes successively. In this manner a closely built-up area was progressively developed. The nature of access structures and patterns of order, typical of former farmland, a gently undulating landscape, remaine recognisable till today, regarding the contemporary structures. Agricultural lands started to disappear in order to find increasingly expression in architectural structures becoming an urban space, a built-up landscape. Relations between urban and rural areas are moving increasingly to the fore. This project tries to overcome the exclusivity inherent in opposing understandings of city and “nature“.
