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.

READING BUILT SPACES – 4th ISUFitaly Conference

Bari, 26-28 September 2018

The conference’s aim is to propose a dialectical comparison between scholars of Architecture, Urban Planning, Urban History, Restoration, Geography, on the theme of urban morphology with an interpretative perspective based on the concept of “operating history”. Search for a multidisciplinary syncretism that eludes single analyzing techniques and aims to the complete reconstruction of the urban phenomenology in its totality and concrete essence, through the study of the changing and inflexible condition of ‘fluidity’ hinged on the world’s events. An integrated thought based on the critical concept of ‘making’ that constitutes, phase by phase, the signifying element of each present, explained through the relationship between the before and the after: that is the research perspective of ‘being’ that announces the notion of transformational process.              Therefore, the projection in the future of the urban form is the central theme of the conference that proposes to stimulate the reflection on the issues as: recovery (not only of the historical city), re-use of existing urban spaces, regeneration, ex novo design in peripheral and peri-urban areas and natural spaces. All that, without neglecting the issue of sustainability, not considered with the strabismus of those who surrender to the “technique” pre-domain.

Themes:

THEORY

1. Urban form theories

2. Urban form between identity and spatial semantics

3. Contemporary urban spaces between form and process

4. Urban form between architecture and landscape

5. In making structural or timeless paradigm?

READING

2. Urban morphology and settlement process

3. Relation between periphery and natural space

4. Structure of the informal city

5. Metropolis and megalopolis in the making

DESIGN

1. Today’s city and future shape

2. Urban restoration and post-trauma re-construction between conservation and innovation

3. Fringe belt riqualification

4. The urban project between city and nature

5. Ecological urban environments
