TEXTS ON SUSTAINABILITY



INTRODUCTION

 

The regulations or norms alienated position, which tortures the design work, and the everyday clumsy movement of such normative towards the culture of prescriptions; urban planning, security, constructive, etc., and currently the environmental, gravitates unnecessarily over applied research processes that emerge from environmental objectives. The restrictive-limitative nature of policies and articulated norms doesn’t only not proportionally raise the security and control over the environment, not either increases the bureaucracy on assessment controls that guarantee the quality of the results and the processes cleanness.

The culture of the prescriptions, as comprehensive as may be, never foresees the reality in all its complexity and dynamism, just because it is impossible, and therefore slows the evolution of the social processes.

For this culture reality is stereotyped and summarized in the strict parameters of the normative, and when this is not possible, the process perverts in a disposed result alienated from time and its social and cultural environment or it is directly marginalized from legality.

There is, however, another culture inserted into the shared commitment between management and managed for the intervention in the environment and responds to the pact concept over the benefits to be reached, benefits relating to the effective human environment.

This pact is the result of negotiated responsibilities. The law derived from culture of benefits (much more simple and pedagogic), and once the quality objectives for different disciplines (urban, constructive, security, health, etc.) have been established, both parties negotiate on them.

Obviously a negotiation between parties requires a parity of competition. I.e. the Administration should provide qualified partners for the designers and their proposals level.

A management system of great transparency because of  the co-responsibility of the parts.

Only in this negotiation of requirements and responsibilities context, can a framework be built, of harmonic and symmetric progress between the dynamism of the social activity and the defense of the common good and, why not say so, the essential condition in the shared construction of the sustainability paradigm.
