ISUFitaly Rome 2020 Urban Morphology Conference – Abstract – https://www.isufitaly.com/

ISUFitaly, International Seminar on Urban Form, Italian Network, organizes its Fifth Conference in Rome on 19/22 February 2020.

The theme of the conference is Urban Substrata and City Regeneration. Morphological legacies as a design tool. Following the previous ISUFitaly conferences themes, dealing mainly with the relationships between urban morphology, history and architectural design, the fifth Conference aims to pose the problem of transformations in urban form considered as underlying the shape of the current city. Considering the existing built form meanings and values as part of the future city, the topics of urban continuity and congruent transformations are therefore proposed.

The organizers and the Council of ISUFitaly invite participation in the Conference by interested academics, professionals, and PhD students who have completed or are completing their research degree . Conference lenguage will be English

Topics on which proposals are particularly welcome include:

Urban form theories

  • Ancient cities and modern theories
  • Historical Cities Morphological Analysis theories and methods
  • Theories on urban regeneration process
  • Teaching urban form theories

Urban form reading

  • Urban morphological analysis of historical territories and landscapes
  • Urban morphological analysis of historical fabrics
  • Urban morphological analysis of historical buildings
  • Reading urban form as a tool for regeneration
  • Teaching urban form reading

Urban form design

  • Historical landscape and contemporary design
  • Historical fabric and contemporary design
  • Historical buildings and contemporary design
  • Urban restoration
  • Today’s city and future regeneration
  • Urban design and post-trauma re-construction
  • Urban Morphology and informal city regeneration
  • Teaching urban form design

Proposals will take the form of abstracts of papers. They will be prepared in the following format: title of paper, author(s) name, affiliation, address, e-mail address, telephone number, keywords and 250-word abstract.

COURSE IN URBAN MORPHOLOGY               

SAPIENZA Rome University – 2019/2020

prof. Giuseppe Strappa, arch.  Annarita Donatella Amato, arch. Cristian Sammarco

  • The course aims to teach a method of reading the built landscape through the characters common to buildings and urban fabrics. Despite their great variety and complexity, in such characters some common and continuous formative principles can be recognized inside homogeneous areas. The fundamental notions of organism and process will be used to read the built landscape.
  • The term “reading” does not indicate the simple and neutral recording of phenomena, but requires the active contribution of the reader, creating a synthesis of the will of the subject and the attitude of ‘object.

The main purpose of the “processual” study proposed by the course is precisely the design identification of the qualitative differences contained in the characters of the built reality, the recognition of the process of their formation and transformation, their internal dialectic of extensive exchanges and integrations
