This study carried out in Dogon country forms part of a research project about extreme cultural landscapes carried out by the Ginna Kanda collective, associated with the UPC and directed by the lecturer Miquel Vidal. It began with a study of the territorial structure of Dogon settlements in the particular topography of the Bandiagara Escarpment. Here, the Dogon people constructed a fascinating vertical landscape, the product of a fluid vertical succession where nature, culture and architecture combine (UNESCO World Heritage List). The new cartography is based on an interpretation of the physical and the intangible elements of the place and is a means to establish specific actions. It advocates "hypo-development", taking into account economic, social and touristic variants, while striking a balance with the cultural and landscape heritage.
