Padua is an extraordinary city of water, an island in the plain squeezed between the Bacchiglione and its branches, the Brenta and the city walls still visible today among casemates, bridges and pieces of nature. A city of mythical origins, which is shown today through its ancient, modern and contemporary wonders, obtaining the recognition of “Urbs picta” as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Scrovegni Chapel, the Eremitani Museum and Palazzo Zuckemann are concentrated within and on the edge of the Arena Gardens, defining an urban polarity that requires a reorganization of the museum, but above all a clarifying re-foundation of its urban form. As part of the DiArchitettura association workshop, we proposed an urban project that, with a few moves summarized in the title – points, lines, surfaces – would reconfigure the boundaries, internal connections and overall shape: a re-planning project that intervenes in the body of this part of the city, knowing it, but without giving up its necessary transformation.  A system of poles, ‘mineral’ points and ‘natural’ surfaces that aspires to build a new urban insula dedicated to culture capable of representing Padua as a single great architecture.

 

 

 

 

 

URBAN MORPHOLOGY INTERNATIONAL LECTURES

 

Urban Morphology Course – Sapienza – Faculty of Architecture
Prof. Giuseppe Strappa
2021/2

KNOWLEDGE ALLIANCE FOR EVIDENCE BASED URBAN PRACTICES
urban morphology

Kaebup International Lectures is a series of web and in attendance meetings intended to investigate the relations between the discipline of Urban Morphology and Architectural Design.
The initiative relies on the contributions of the international research group Kaebup and of the Sapienza University Urban Morphology Course in Rome. The series of lectures aims to present different methods of reading the built landscape and ways of translating research into evidence-based design. The series of lectures has been organized in the belief that combining research and practice could open up new aspects of the disciplinary debate on the tools of the architectural design.

UNIVERSITA’ DEGLI STUDI DI ROMA “LA SAPIENZA”
FACOLTÀ DI ARCHITETTURA

COURSE IN URBAN MORPHOLOGY 2021/2022

prof. Giuseppe Strappa

arch. Anna Rita Donatella Amato

arch. Francesca De Rosa

arch. Huimin Ji

arch. Alessandra Pusceddu

GOALS

The course aims to teach a method of reading the built landscape through the knowledge of the forming processes common to urban fabrics and buildings. The basic notions of organism and process will be used to read the built landscape.

The main purpose of the typological study proposed by the course is the identification of the characters of the built environment and the recognition of the  formation and transformation processes , having as ultimate goal the architectural design.

COURSE STRUCTURE

The course will consist of:

  1. a series of lectures (see schedule)aiming to provide the student, through the morphological / processual method, with the tools to read the built environment, historical and contemporary, having the architectural design as its goal.
  2. a series of independent lectures given by external professors or experts, on complementary subjects. The purpose of these lectures is to give a general idea of the contemporary studies on urban form through the knowledge of methods different from those followed by the course. Some re-design exercises will be proposed to apply the concepts learned.
  3. “morphological walks” eventually organized in small groups to examine the fabrics and buildings under study. The participation and writing of a short report entitles the student of Ar course to 2 credits.

EXAMINATION

Students will be evaluated through an oral test.

The student will be free to choose one of the following forms of exam:

1. presentation of the work carried out during the course on one of the themes included in the program. The student’s work will be followed periodically by the teachers and may also contain a simple project proposal as an example of the theoretical study.

2. Discussion on one of the theoretical topics listed in the course program.

The students will also be free to present all the works they consider useful for evaluation.

Progetto urbano. La costruzione della forma urbana tra architettura e città

Giornata di Studi | Venerdì_22 gennaio 2021 | H_9:00

Locandina 11-01-2021_per web
La Giornata di Studi ideata e coordinata dai professori Renato Capozzi e Federica Visconti – docenti del DiARC, ma anche membri del Collegio dei Docenti del Dottorato in Architettura e Costruzione (DRACo) della Sapienza Università di Roma – e Dina Nencini – coordinatrice del DRACo – intende proporre una riflessione e attivare un confronto sul ruolo del progetto urbano nella costruzione della forma urbana. La Giornata di Studi sarà suddivisa in due sezioni. Nella prima, Franco Purini – Emeritus della Sapienza Università di Roma – parlerà della crisi che il progetto urbano si trova a fronteggiare nella contemporaneità. Purini, infatti, in una recente lectio magistralis tenuta in occasione dell’inaugurazione dell’anno dottorale 2020-2021, ha proposto un appello per un ritorno alla centralità degli studi urbani, in linea peraltro con una tradizione tutta italiana. Seguiranno le lectiones dei professori Uwe Schröder (RWTH Aachen University) e Carlo Moccia (Politecnico di Bari), i quali, assumendo come punto di partenza un attento lavoro analitico finalizzato alla lettura della forma urbis, proporranno un modo di lavorare sul ridisegno dello spazio aperto della città europea. Concluderà la prima sezione del seminario la Tavola Rotonda, coordinata dal professore Giuseppe Strappa (Sapienza Università di Roma).
La seconda sezione sarà inaugurata dal professore Bruno Messina (Università degli Studi di Catania), come coordinatore della Collana Ricerche in Composizione Urbana di LetteraVentidue, che ha quale suo ambito di interesse proprio le questioni inerenti al progetto urbano e quindi alla forma della città. La Giornata di Studi, inoltre, sarà l’occasione per presentare i risultati del seminario progettuale “Berlin City West”, promosso dal Dottorato di Venezia e quindi dal suo coordinatore, il professore Armando Dal Fabbro, che introdurrà la sezione “Progetti per Berlino”. In quest’ultima, le scuole di dottorato in progettazione di Italia che hanno aderito all’iniziativa dello IUAV – Bari, Roma, e, in aggiunta, anche Napoli –, illustreranno il lavoro svolto durante il seminario e gli esiti della ricerca progettuale.
La Giornata di Studi, che si svolgerà il 22 gennaio 2021 (su piattaforma Microsoft TEAMs) intende quindi riflettere sulla questione delle trasformazioni urbane e sulle idee di città, sul progetto come strumento di conoscenza della forma urbana e sulla ricerca attraverso l’azione progettuale.
