Shrinking Montevideo

Monday, December 16th, 2013

Shrinking Montevideo by Isabella Forestieri (POLIMI December 2013)

More than fifty percent of the world’s population now lives in cities, and the figure is expected to increase in the next two decades. However, the common assumption that the global increase in urbanization means that all cities are growing, is false: in every part of the world many cities are actually shrinking. As the city is “context par excellence” where man lives and acts, delineate the trajectories, the phenomena and processes that trigger in these living organisms, which are the cities, it is essential to understand the anthropology of contemporary life, its its unfolding, and to be able to act consequently to improve the liveability the unity and the equity of its inhabitants.

Urban farming in Milan

Milan [edible] city by Luca Pavarin (POLIMI October 2013)

As a living beings we depend on food. Our entire life is shaped by this essential need but considering cities, the place in which we live and work, a contradiction is becoming visible. The sustenance of the urban lifestyle depends even more from something we produce elsewhere, in something we usually call countryside.

Our research starts from the observation of a phenomenon which that arouses great interest: vacancy and decline of many urban areas. The analysis we made in the fi rst part of our work tries to defi ne causes and macro-trajectories of this process. In order to clarify this tendency we needed to study demographic curves, economic previsions, determining contact between different cities experiencing a shrinkage.

collACTION
Collective Actions – a Collection of participated practices

CollAction is a research project involving also a Bachelor degree thesis: a  Collection of bottom-up initatives dealing with the relation between architecture and society. The main thread is the concept of participation, together with the spontaneous creativity and the horizontal exchange pratices.
Each action will be described through an ID and a process’ overview, arranged in categories and examined by a plurality of indicators (temporality, social impact, sustainability, professionist’s presence…).

Ma(se)-Riabitiamo

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

 

Ma(se)-Riabitiamo by  Laura Di Donfrancesco e Martina Guandalini (POLIMI, June 2012)
Ma-(s)se-riabitiamo è il risultato di una ricerca volta ad indagare il patrimonio edilizio rappresentato dalle masserie all’interno del territorio leccese. Il progetto parte dal presupposto di trovare una soluzione al problema diffuso dell’abbandono di questi manufatti, che a sua volta genera numerose conseguenze dannose all’ambiente, all’agricoltura e alle comunità contadine che abitano questi territori. La masseria, da sempre, rappresenta un esempio di architettura agricola che instaura un rapporto biunivoco ed indissolubile con il territorio circostante.

S+L alloggi per studenti e lavoratori a Milano

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011


Tesi: Maddalena Boatto, Michela Fancello
Politecnico di Milano, dicembre 2011

La coabitazione, già da diversi anni, non interessa più solo ed unicamente gli studenti, ma coinvolge anche molti giovani lavoratori.
Spesso gli alloggi esistenti, che si basano sulle necessità abitative di un unico nucleo familiare, non corrispondono alle  esigenze di questo target di utenti.
Attraverso lo studio e l’analisi di modelli esistenti si evidenzia una richiesta di spazi caratterizzata da accortezze legate a questa nuova fascia di popolazione, spesso in continuo spostamento, alla ricerca di luoghi della socialità che, però, prevedano un angolo intimo e privato. La nostra sfida vede Milano quale matrice urbana complessa e frenetica dove creare uno scenario fertile per l’insediamento di una nuova rete di offerte indirizzate a queste due categorie di persone.
