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:

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.

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.
