The Workshop aims to open a research focused on the relationship between heritage and project, or rather the relationship between architectural and landscape pre-existing conditions in historically multi-layered environments, and interventions of requalification and urban renewal. The (re)reading of the context motivated by the inclusion of new urban functions and new architectural structure in the case-studies, will address the meaning of time as an architectural notion in the interpretation of the built heritage. The urban case-studies will focus on emblematic contexts of the Mantua historical and modern transformation. The final program of the Workshop will be published during the academic year, on the Mantua Campus webpage and on the Beep portal.
The Workshop proposes a final design activity as synthetic conclusion of the Master Course. The Workshop is organized in a design studio and a series of thematic discussions in which different disciplinary contributions will be considered and useful for the development of design methodologies. Design experiment, developed in Mantua urban context, will be conducted by supervised design groups.
