Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Lablog started many years ago, in 2005, with an opening pic taken on the spectacular terrace of this immense building: we were there with our students from POLIMI and, actually, many of us were using the Corbu hotel in the building, now partially destroied by the fire.

Here is the pic:

Garbage Housing

Friday, February 10th, 2012
Dopo l’esperienza di Re:CP, pubblicato grazie al contributo di 200 co-produttori e di questa piattaforma, chiediamo nuovamente la vostra partecipazione per la pubblicazione di un altro libro che meriterebbe di essere tradotto e ristampato in italiano.

Circa un anno fa, mentre lavoravo alla mia tesi di dottorato, ho trovato su internet una copia usata di Garbage Housing, un libro pubblicato nel 1975 da Martin Pawley, che allora insegnava alla AA di Londra.

Adaptive Re-use/Diploma course

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

“ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences/School of Architecture”

This year the Course for Diploma ‘Adaptive re-use’ (Facoltà di Architettura e Società/Politecnico di Milano) will focus its interests on specific topics connected with the on-going research project MeLa (European Museums in an Age of Migrations) investigating the new role Museums and Exhibitions could/should play in a multy-cultural society where questions such as Identity and Citizenship are strongly impacted by phenomena like the Europanization of Europe and the massive presence of permanent migrants in what we consider to be ‘our’ Europe or ‘our’ Nation or ‘our’ City or even ‘our’ territory. Here you can download a brief project presentation.

Another object of interest is the European XX Century Conflict Heritage – tangible and intangible legacies wars left behind – with a special focus on the Atlantic Wall and WWII period. Here you can download a brief presentation about how we think to approach this difficult theme.

Students at POLIMI (Italian or Foreigners) interested in developing their Diploma in such a field, could take contact with me (Gennaro Postiglione) using contact blog-mail in the ‘about page’.
