Spectra, Centre of Excellence was one of the co-organizers of the international exhibition and conference LAND-URBIA in Nitra (18th-21st April 2013). The main philosophy of the event might be expressed by the motto “Planning Toward Identity”, which comprises under one headline various aspects of the regional identity preservation and development. Maintaining and further development of regional identity of the landscape and cities is one of the fundamental precondition for securing the sustainability as well as the identification of the people with the lived space. Pressure of various interest groups, quick benefit oriented developers and lack of public involvement might be detrimental for the identity of our spaces.
