Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi
The workshop is focused on the possibility of reconsider a new urban strategy for the small-medium towns that moves from the historical analysis of the context, both territorial both urban.
The strategy adopted allowed to set a critical approach, able to express the potential of the small central dismissed areas in the process of regeneration and redevelopment of the city and its urban, architectural and social settings, opposed to the increasing instances of delocalisation and uncontrolled consumption of land.

In the current situation, this workshop challenges the priority of a strategic vision that overcomes the conventional aspects of planning and, optimizing the resources represented by the existing context, could represent a possible concrete prospect for other cities.
Workshop contents.


Prague. The workshop proposes a design theme regarding the consolidation of one of the cultural systems of Prague around the "citadel" of the legendary ghetto.

It considers the central tissue of Stare Mesto, outlined in the ideal triangulation that from Staromestske Namesti spread the vertices represented by Sv Mikulas, Rudolfinum and Klaster Sv Anezky Ceske.

The theme proposed covers the rehabilitation of the area around Klaster Sv Anezky Ceske, founded in 1234, currently museum of Czech painting and sculpture.

The program includes the project of a museum, articulated through the return of the typological structure of the cloistered convent, in support of existing exhibition, and deployment of a new structure for the Ghetto Memorial Museum of the ancient city, in the adjacent area between the street Kozi, u Milosrdnych and na Frantisku, near the river Vltava.


Fidenza. Another case proposed is represented by the city of Fidenza and its territory included in the basin of the Po valley, along the Via Emilia, with the with the purpose of showing a possible different approach to the theme of urban regeneration.

In this evolving framework, which is the basis for all other economic activity in the surrounding territory, as part of a Food-Valley articulated around the axis of the Via Emilia, Fidenza has the right size to become a catalyst for issues related to the food industry, as a producer of knowledge and diffuser of communication.

In the same way, the ancient relationship with the inner centre of Salsomaggiore and its thermal system, could represent a starting point to think in a different way about the theme of hospitality, service and activities related to body care and well-being, in order to consolidate the construction of a "City of Health", based on territorial relations.


Teaching format.

The workshop consists of lectures and communications on specific design themes and application contexts. In the first phase the activity of workshop will be concentrated on the correct interpretation of the application ambits, proposed to the students by the recognition (also by the inspections) of the specific contest characters.

At this stage, some lectures will regard the definition of the design theme.

These communications will be supported by some design experience, considered paradigmatic in the history of modern architecture.

In the second phase, the workshop activities will take place through individual and collective adjustments of project proposals for students and, if retained necessary, through specific communications support for the progress of the work.
