Aspo “room-experience” workshop

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

From 20 to 22 of April, Gennaro Postiglione and the Swedish artist Olle Dahl will drive students from Mats Edstrom course “Working on/around Military Architecture Heritage” (School of Architecture, LTH, Lund) on the “room-experience” workshop: recording room-qualities through a sequence of room-alterations. Students are invited to introduce one alteration per time (objects, materials, etc. brought form home or found on site) and to record “reactions” of the room they use for the setting. Those records should lead to listing/naming/understanding room spacial & emotional potential qualities. The sites are located on the island of Aspo, just in front of Karlskrona (on Est coast of South Sweden) and they consist of a number of military fortifications from the beginning of the XXth century.

On 23th results will be visible at: room-experience sequences

The last 3rd of December, there has been at the Politecnico di Milano – Faculty of Architettura e Società  – a conference and an exhibition (03-21 December 2007) on “Atlantik Wall bunkers: possible re-use” discussing if there is any possibility to transform the enormous amount of bunkers lasting along European West coast, from Pirenée to North Cap. and 6000 Km long, disseminated with more than 12.000 buildings representing the largest neglected and unhimelich heritage of EU.

Architects and scholars were invited to present their ideas and their built and un-built works on bunker transformations (following some of the presentations delivered and some more pictures of the exhibition: shots by MV Trovato and J Menzani).
