Today Abitare has published the post of the Grand Opening of a very prestigious building by Stefano Boeri Architetti (the practice run by Abitare’s Director). Read after the break the comment that Gennaro Postiglione managed to post on Abitare’s site. Read the rest of this entry »

Abitare solidale

Una aia solidale
Tesi: Andrea Pezzoli, Giulia Urciuoli
Politecnico di Milano, luglio 2009

Partendo dalla proposta di Multiplicity.Lab /DIAP “I Municipi dell’Abitare”, il progetto – con la collaborazione del CeAS – dà una risposta al problema “dell’accoglienza rom” a Milano, attraverso il recupero della cascina Mulino San Gregorio nel Parco Lambro. Il lavoro prende origine dall’iniziativa della Triennale di Milano, “Una casa per tutti”+”La vita nuda”, che ha indagato il problema del disagio abitativo a Millano.

A Box of Dreams: competition

Thursday, August 6th, 2009


(Artwork by Nico Vascellari)

Fondazione Claudio Buziol

The third edition of the international competition dedicated to young people offers the chance to deal with the theme of creativity in various areas of art, fashion and design. The competition has a more idealistic aim of encouraging participants to present innovative ideas and projects, irrespective of their direct application. It is a true dream factory, where young people are encouraged to ‘dare’, by placing more emphasis on the idea and visionary ability than their technical level. The deadline for the submission of work is set for the 30th of October 2009!

Per Adriano

[Bruce Nauman, Topological Gardens, IUAV-Tolentini, 2009]

Last February, the friend and Maestro Adriano Cornoldi unaspected died. Professor in Interior Architecture at IUAV-Venice, in 2007 Adriano arranged the International Conference in Interior “Intervenire sull’esistente/Acting up-on the existent”; as the first one, in 2005, the venue was the Aula Magna of IUAV-Architecture at Tolentini (with its main entrance by Carlo Scarpa). As a homage to his teaching and legacy, I attach a small video-shot taken during the Bruce Nauman installation “Topological Gardens” arranged for the 53rd Art Biennale 2009: the Aula Magna of Tolentini is completely empty and filled only by voices repeting week-day names.

Oslo trip Webgallery

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009


Finally, after a month we are ready to share some of our pics taken during the study trip to Oslo (27/05-02/06 2009). What as been peculiar in this experience, compared to other similar trips, it was the opportunity to meet the architects authors of the works visited in their own studio and having them tutoring around. Moreover, the authors also introduced themselves through a sort of lecture where presented their work and thought.

During the few, and intense, days we had the chance also the experience the long daylight, the incredible warm sun and the picknic in Wigeland Park, with wine beer barbecue and the beautiful viking girls and boys: unforgettable!

The galleries were arranged by Claudia Brunelli, Rossella Destefani, Margherita Parati starting from student shots: actually it is not always very clear the selection criteria in terms of sequence and of content but so far it all we have. The storeybord is by Gennaro Postiglione.

Hope you enjoy the trip.
