L’influenza degli studi di tipologia
processuale sui Codici di Pratica ed i
Manuali del Recupero e nella didattica
del restauro urbano.

The influence of procedural typology
studies on the Codes of Practice, on
the Recovery Manuals and on the didactic  of urban restoration

in U+D n.16, 2021

Nell’ambito di una più ampia riflessione sul portato che gli studi di morfologia urbana hanno avuto nella cultura e nell’insegnamento del progetto di architettura degli ultimi decenni, questo breve contributo si incentrerà sulle figure di Gianfranco Caniggia (1933-1987), Antonino Giuffrè (1933-1997) e Paolo Marconi (1933-2014) e su come gli studi di tipologia processuale della scuola muratoriana, ed in particolare le applicazioni operative di Caniggia, abbiano influenzato la nascita dei codici di pratica concepiti da Giuffrè per la conservazione e la messa in sicurezza del costruito storico, in particolare nei centri storici a rischio sismico, e l’evoluzione nello stesso senso dei manuali del recupero prodotti dalla scuola di Marconi.
E come la ricerca operativa e l’insegnamento di questi grandi maestri abbia inciso profondamente nella didattica del restauro urbano.

ISSUM – International Summer School on Urban Morphology – Rome, 20 / 28 June 2022

IsufItaly, as a member of International Seminar on Urban Form, Italian Network and Kaebup (Knowledge Alliance for Evidence-Based Urban Practices), welcomes applications from Master and PhD architecture and planning students interested in Urban Morphology research to participate in an International Summer School on Urban Morphology to be held in Rome from 20 to 28 June 2022 . 
ISSUM, organized with the contribution of Isuf Regional Network, aims to offer students the opportunity to learn methods of UM through the teaching of international teachers and concretely verify the knowledge acquired through the interpretation of the built landscape. The ISSUM goal is to provide also a centre of excellence in urban form knowledge through multiple exchanges and involvement of students, academics, professionals in learning, research and design. 
Through lectures and studio work, discussions, and research activities (in English), participants will explore the urban morphology studies’ role in reading historical and consolidated urban fabrics and producing an evidence-based intervention design.

The goal will be achieved through

Lectures intended to cover the theoretical part of the school’s teaching. 

They will be held by:
• Isufitaly teachers  giving lectures to introduce the students to the local UM methods (Italian-processual school).  
• Guest teachers giving lectures on their research methods in UM. 
• Guest professionals to give lectures on their design experience linked to the study of urban form.

Field surveys,  organized by host teachers, will guide the students in practical urban analysis. The team of teachers will also provide the basic cartography helpful in reading the various case studies.

Studio activities, intended as reading exercises and practical drawings concerning the selected urban fabrics. They will also involve some hints on the architectural design related to the fabric studied. The students’ work will be discussed with the contribution of the host teachers, including local academics and  professionals.  

Site
Lectures and studio work will take place at Palazzo Cenci Bolognetti, a Renaissance building in Piazza delle Cinque Scole in Rome. The site is located in the Ghetto area, in a specially  remarkable historical area where the Medieval and Renaissance fabric blends with the  ancient substratum. The area around the school will be the subject of the morphological readings.
 
Application
A jury will select a group of 15 participants.  

Minimum Requirements for the application are: 
• 4th-year Architecture or Urban Planning student 
• Some experience in urban form studies  
To apply, interested students are required to send: 
• name and surname 
• date of birth, place of residence and nationality, email address 
• a brief academic and professional CV and a motivation letter (maximum 4000 characters in all) containing  all data considered useful for the evaluation (schools,  universities and post-graduate courses attended, professional experiences,  publications, etc. )

Please send your application by  15th March 2022 to the link: https://tinyurl.com/mr3r8zhs 
 
The result of the selection will be communicated via email by 10th April 2022. For further details or inquiries, please write to:

Registration
For the participation to the ISSUM, the payment of a fee of € 200 after the selection is required as a contribution to organizational expenses. The fee should be paid by 30th April 2022 and includes lectures and the use of educational spaces.

To support the dissemination of UM studies, Isuf will provide a grant to an African Student.
