Stazione Agip got listed

Friday, February 21st, 2014

We just found out that the Stazione di Servizio Agip, the beloved building topic of our 2012 Design Lab, has been officially listed. According to the public authorities – namely the Ministero dei beni e delle attività culturali e del turismo – the building is “of  particularly outstanding historical and artistic interest” and will be now subject to safeguard. The official document stating this important judgement features a short bibliography that includes our Lab-int-2012 as a reference.

It goes without saying that we consider this a huge achievenment for the commitment played out by our students in that project.

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

AHO Bygg 3 unit

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Some pics from one of the  most challenging and old rooted design studio class at AHO: for almost 40 years chaired by Sverre Fehn and from 2000 by Per Olav Fjeld. The work shows the reachness of appraches and representation tecniques, but also the plurality of investigations developed by each student to better search within his/her design proposal.

Hola Gennaro,

Te paso un par de enlaces a dos podcasts bastante interesantes.

El primero se llama Planeta Beta, programa semanal producido por profesores de la escuela de arquitectura de la Universidad Europea de Madrid donde invitan en cada programa a un arquitecto o persona relacionada con el mundo de la arquitectura.

El segundo podcast es el que reúne las conferencias de la Fundación Juan March desde los años 70’s. Aunque estas conferencias son muy variadas, encontrarás bastantes impartidas por arquitectos.

A presto,

ciao a tutti

per non vedere solo progetti di studenti con pannelli in policarbonato (registrandosi, si ha accesso a tutto il database dove si vedono le caratteristiche fisiche e tecniche di ogni materiale)

per vedere le cose costruite (molto spesso i pdf dei progetti hanno piante e dettagli a scala costruttiva)

maquette (con buona pace di enrico p.)

lo scatolone con le “tavole riassunto” delle tesi della etsam. se si scrive nei campi di ricerca: “sobresaliente” e “pfc” usciranno tutte le tesi che hanno ricevuto il massimo punteggio. se si scrive “matricula de honor” appariranno le poche poche tesi (Izaskun chinchilla, Javier Garcia German, ecc) che sono state ritenute eccelse.

a domani
