Salaheddine Heffaf – The forming process of the Algerian Territory

 

URBAN MORPHOLOGY COURSE – GIUSEPPE STRAPPA – SAPIENZA – 2021-22

The lecture will present the formation and transformation process of the built environment, at territorial scale, in the Ouled Nail and Djebel Amour mounts, following the principle of oganicity such as developed in the Muratorian thought. This reading makes it possible to distinguish periods of relative stability, during which the territorial organism was endowed with all the values of the type, from periods of imbalance induced by the various waves of colonization.

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.

TERRITORY AS ARCHITECTURE

TERRITORY AS ARCHITECTURE

Giuseppe Strappa

 

 

 

 

Early formation of Pienza (from Cataldi)

 

Territory is materia signata, a substance which man’s consciousness acknowledges as having an aptitude for transformation: architectural material in the most complete sense of the word.[1]

Therefore, use of the natural matter, of the soil bed in its different, complementary meanings related to vegetal or geological world, lies at the origin of the formation of the territory. So, its study is linked to the architectural interpretation of a process, to the problem of how matter becomes material before being transformed into a territorial element and how each element arising from this transformation contributes to the formation of a more general “territorial organism” comprising increasingly higher-level structures.

Land-scape means in English “modelling of the earth”, with an  emphasis on the natural aspect of the cognitive environment the term is associated with. It is opposed to the italian term “paesaggio” (French paesage , Spanish paisaje) associated with the term “paese” and hence to the Latin pagus meaning village, acknowledging, in a concise manner, a relationship of solidarity between the land and human settlement.

Therefore, the landscape as a cultural expression is linked to the inhabited space, to the cooperation between natural and artificial resources, to the transformations that interpret the form of orographic peaks, valleys, plains and their ability to become a built environment. In short, it is the territory’s visible aspect, the concise expression of its structure. ………………………
