The Drinkscape workshop took place in Yubune area of Uji, in Japan, this area is located between two ancient capitals, Kyoto and Nara and is recognized by the production of tea and rice but stands out for the landscapes that the tea plantations produce (cataloged as UNESCO World Heritage); each one of these landscapes tells a history filled with a lot of tradition and culture. This thesis aim is to study the main concepts of the Japanese parcels and the current dynamics of urban transformation that can be recognized and reused, The goal is to make an analysis that identifies the forms of urbanization and that can interpret the historical condition of Yubune. In the development of the thesis, we recognized the impact that the housing plots had in the past and consequently reveal how we can work with them to propose a new urban mixture; taking into account the historical context, and seeking the benefit for the people and their economy. The goal of the project is to interpret the spirit of the traditional architecture and consolidate a new type of architectural language that can recuperate the old one making it re flourish and at the same time become an important part of the village. The new architectural language should have the power to complete the existing one and offer a special role to nature highlighting it. Finally, the intention of this intervention is the regeneration of the villages in order to encourage people to visit the tea plantations and get to know the importance of these production processes. The starting point or base of the project was deciding to develop a system of reinterpretation of spaces in an urban and suburban scale in the village of Yubune (taking into account Yubune gonose and Yubune Hakayama) in order to create norms and codes that become planning tools to intervene the village in some specific scenarios always, respecting the heritage.
