QHLab2020… a Biography

June 16th, 2020

An exploration of house-lives biographies in quarantined times, through the works of bachelor students from Politecnico di Milano, AUIC school.

March 2020: After a first wave in Asia, the spread of the Covid-19 in different countries of the world has lead many Governments to establish a series of lockdowns, asking people to stay at home in more or less restrictive ways. In some countries, the “quarantine” has lasted more than two months.

Covid-19/an overview and some proposals

March 29th, 2020

A clear and sharp overview on Covid-19 health and socio-economic impacts with some significant proposals.

“Covid-19 is the largest health and economic crisis of our generation. We are all bombarded by a lot of news, which are evolving quickly, are often highly technical, and have policy consequences that dramatically affect our lives”.

“Andrea Galeotti and I [Paolo Surico] felt the need to learn some tools to process this information and to understand and rationalise current health and economic policies. We [They] created a narrative to highlight different trade-offs which are part of: a) every health policy that attempts to flatten the contagion curve of Covid-19, and b) every economic policy that attempts to flatten the ‘recession curve’ caused by Covid-19″.

Cornavirus allert to share

March 12th, 2020

Dear all,
I have to share this report with you, and I will do within other networks too.
It is deadly urgent we all become aware about the actions we should all perform.

I forward a link to a scientific but descriptive report:

It is a long reading but if you are patient enough you can get a full sketch what we (Europe) are facing.

Do not underestimate the infection.
And I would also ask to share it within your own networks and media, please, since the relevance to be thoroughly informed is at the moment a key element in the battle.

The seminar is inspired by the increasing number of interesting projects and architectural practices dealing with spatial, typological and technical innovation connected to the regeneration of existing buildings all over Europe toward residential and community spaces. The seminar is interested in crossing different experiences that work on: the regeneration of existing collective housing, the regeneration of peripheral areas and fragile context, the unconventional reuse of the nonresidential, underused or abandoned buildings. All these topics combine many issues: the typological innovation in relation to contemporary practices, the work on the envelope, the layout articulation, the image of the building, the participation of the community, the effects that these projects can produce on urban scale.
