ARCHITECTURE AND HERITAGE IN CHINA DESIGN WORKSHOP

“IMAGINARY CITY”

  

Formative aims

 Imagination is very important for human being. As we all known, Marco Polo came to China in 1275, and returned to Venice in 1295. In 1299, he dictated the stories of traveling and the stories were recorded into a book, called “II Milione”. Shortly afterwards, the book became prevalent in Europe countries, motivating Europeans to imagine what China looked like. This desire for the unknown Eastern world also brought about a series of expeditions, for example, Columbus’ voyage. While, in the past 700 years, disputes about the authenticity of the Travel of Marco Polo has never stopped.

The history here described is aimed to explain that reality or imagination are not important. There are multiple reality and imagination alive in the relationship between different individuals, cities or countries. The point is that imagination motivates expectation for the future. If we look back to the history of the development in the East and West, we understand that both of them were growing on the imagination of each other.

700 years after the travel, we may stands on a new point where Italy and China look at each other. Compared with Marco Polo’s time, Italian young students can also gather information about old and recent China through many other ways, such as books, movies, internet, newspapers, televisions and so on. No matter how efficient communications ways we have, imagination is still important as before.

The studio will explore through design the peculiar characters, concepts and approaches related to Chinese heritage protection and enhancement. The relation to a given historical/archaeological site will ground imagination on present challenges.

 

Contents

The workshop will combine theoretical lessons and the development of a design proposal related to a museum in a heritage site, meant as a “China-Italy Communication Center”.

The lessons will explore a broad range of subjects to root and activate imagination: the Chinese cities in The Travels of Marco Polo, Urban Planning of Chinese Cities, Chinese Architecture and Architecture in Context.

 

Studio activity

Students are required first to read and acquire information and understanding of China. Then, to shape up their imagination about China and start the design of a “China-Italy Communication Center” in the given heritage site.

Therefore, you students are the Marco Polo of today. You will draw your map, discover your references, set up themes to make history and memory vivid again.

The museum center will serve the people, visitors and locals, as a new Marco Polo come from Italy. It is a new place where the East and West can meet each other.

The forms and activities of the museum center are not regulated. It depends on your interpretation of the theme.


Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione

Examination

Attendance to ex-cathedra lectures, presentation of the group/individual work, and participation in discussions are compulsory. Students will be evaluated on the basis of their works, their active participation in collective discussions and the quality and depth of their design proposal. 

Exercises works will be evaluated during the semester and will contribute to the final evaluation.

The final examination will consist in evaluating applied knowledge and understanding through the analysis work and design achievements of each working group (mid-term exercises, mapping, booklets, design, drawings and models), as well as in testing individually the student’s knowledge, understanding and presentation skills (critical awareness on the contents and theoretical issues covered in the Studio program).
