Full Article:

This paper analyzes the validity of design principles seeded by Manrique in Lanzarote Island (1968-1992) to face current challenges in territorial innovation. Such period comprehended a radical shift from subsistence agriculture towards a massive tourism industry, where local resources and collective identity had to be both projected and protected to look appealing for globalized leisure. Roles, methodologies, ecodesign strategies and success indicators are briefly identified to serve as a didactic tool for future designers.
