The research “Future motorway. Design strategies for next generation infrastructure”, in its path, deals with a double important and urgent issue: the need to consider mobility infrastructures as landscape devices and the definition of a new paradigm for the motorways of the future. The main objective of the thesis is the definition of a planning strategy for the infrastructures of the future, starting from the TechnoEcoSystem concept. It is based around a double hypothesis: one theoretical, the other experimental. The first observes the definition of TechnoEcoSystem (Naveh, Lieberman,1990) from the ecology of the landscape and transfers it to the project/transformation process of the motorways. The second one identifies one of the prototypes of the Motorway TechnoEcoSystem into the service areas. As a whole, the work combines theoretical and experimental aspects, within a path of design process that through qualitative and quantitative observations, defines the 4.0 motorway through a holistic view of the system.
