[by Lorenzo Sizzi, April 2019]

Opportunities arises from the desire to conceive a strategy capable of preventing the practice of uncontrolled and unconscious reuse of churches. The strategy is organized in two phases. The first is based on the study of the work of two architects and is aimed at understanding the church building, which culminates in the definition of four fundamental properties. The second concerns re-use and, thanks to the theoretical support of the documents of a workshop and three conferences on the subject, the aim is to analyze a selection of case studies by experimenting a qualitative evaluation method that works by dividing the intervention into two themes: program
and spatiality.

The research aims to explore the relation between individuals and places in the contemporary city and to investigate the way the social dynamics can foster the process of integration in a more and more diverse and multi-ethnic society, taking as starting point the case of Campo Marzio in Vicenza.

GRZ.0 Final Seminar & Exhibition

Sunday, June 9th, 2019

Former industrial buildings where, through some very simple objects, many religions are practised; gardens where, through an old carpet, an extension of a sitting room is created; a name-less square where, through bottle-caps or ropes, kids can play all together beyond any cultural background. The main square used for car washing; material fences and mental boundaries as an answer to urban fears related to ‘otherness’: migrants, teenagers going to a professional school, political activists.

This is the link to browse through students’ work and this the link to a video summary of the semester.

ReCoDe strategies and results

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019

In the past three years, a multi-disciplinary group of colleagues at the Politecnico di Milano have been exploring trends in housing and dwelling practices and the need for new kinds of housing, policies and processes in Italy.
The research aims to identify innovative, up-to-date housing solutions (in terms of building types, furnishing, layout, management and promoters) capable of meeting the urgent housing needs created by the profound socio-demographic transformations that have taken place in the West over the last few decades.
Using a  Design driven Research approach, the presentation sets out to answer the following questions. What are the best solutions to solve the mismatch between housing demand and supply in the contemporary city? How can the housing market be made accessible and affordable for vulnerable households? How can the current housing stock be upgraded without causing gentrification? How can the legacy of the Architecture of Interiors fruitfully contribute to the social and urban transformations of the city environment?
