QHLab2020… a Biography

Tuesday, 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.

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.

Architecture [quality] Matters 
Envisiong San Siro #1 and #2

The Architecture of Interiors Design Studio 2018 and 2019 have been inspired by the ever-increasing number of studies that in Italy and Europe are concerned with the need for an opportunity to intervene on the vast residential property built after WWII and, in particular, on the Social Housing building stock that constitutes for many Countries the most substantial part. This is due the European Energy road map (2012) that has fixed the ambitious goal to cut gas emission by the 85% by 2050, investing large amount of money for retrofitting interventions on public buildings, specially on housing stock.
We believe this is an opportunity for architects and also a risk for our built and urban environment if we do not take care of it since those intervention might be an incredible tool either for improving building and urban quality or to kill it: Architecture takes [or should take] command!

lab-int1#MSc-2013: Utopia reloded: the Robin Hood Gardens

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Oggetto del lavoro è stato il complesso residenziale dei Robin Hood Gardens (1966-1972) di Alison and Peter Smithson che l’amministrazione comunale di Londra ha deciso nel 2009 di demolire per la cattiva condizione statica, igienica e sociale del complesso.
Il laboratorio di Progettazione degli Interni 1B, dopo una fase ricognitiva sui dati materiali e culturali legati all’immobile, affronta l’ipotesi di un progetto di recupero e riqualificazione per uno dei capolavori del brutalismo britannico.

Grazie alla collaborazione di Martina Pini e Marco Pioventini è stato possibile impaginare e pubblicare i due volumi consultabili su issuu:

lab-int1#MSc-2012_On the Road is now ready

Friday, July 20th, 2012

The work undergone by students deal with the refurbishment of a dismissed Milanese petrol station that was designed and built in the beginning of the 50?s by Mario Bacciocchi. The building represents a very precious heritage for the city and for its owner, Eni S.p.A. As we started to research about the history of the building, and the company, we realized how intriguing this project might become if all the issues around it will be taken into account…

Here are the results: On the road: stazione di servizi – Milano

lab-int1#MSc-2008: Civitella Retail Park

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Il progetto di recupero e valorizzazione del borgo medioevale di Civitella del Tronto (TR), formula una proposta generale che può intendersi come applicazione operativa della ricerca ‘Active-actions’: un paese quasi del tutto abbandonato viene rivitalizzato attraverso delle strategie progettuali alla piccola e alla grande scala che si fondano sul presupposto di considerare l’esistente una risorsa e il progetto una attività  di negoziazione sostenibile. In questo contesto operativo, a Civitella viene promossa la realizzazione del primo Centro Commerciale Naturale e Sostenibile con l’obiettivo di promuovere un diverso uso del territorio che ne determini come unica conseguenza lo sfruttamento sconsiderato.
