Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course is proposed as a research on the hybrid nature of contemporary space, focusing on the "interior" extended definition launched by the modernist revolution during the last century and pushed today by digital culture to its extreme and unpredictable consequences.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

Students:
- know and understand the role of avantgarde tendencies when criticising functionalism and prefiguring the contemporary city;
- develop a critical sense, learning to read the nature of the contemporary space;
- can understand the changes that have occurred in this sphere and the reasons that produced them.


Argomenti trattati

The Second World War marked a watershed between the first and the second half of the twentieth century, accelerating the processes of revision - and even disintegration - of modernism as emerged at the turn of the twentieth century in Europe. Not only the language of rationalism was in crisis, but the same statute of modern architecture seemed, in fact, obsolete with respect to needs and aspirations of Western society at the dawn of reconstruction. The course aims to examine, through a series of case studies, the basic steps of this change in taste and research, highlighting the increasingly important role assumed by the definition of new landscapes. In particular, the course focuses on three periods of time: the twenty years '50-'60; the period between the late '60s and the beginning of the 80s; the postmodern condition and the digital one. We'll examine the role of the avant-garde of the critique of functionalism and prefiguring the contemporary city, presenting a reading of groups such as the Situationist International, the Radicals, the technological utopias and those megastructural. Particular attention will be devoted to the analysis of the relationship between art, architecture, design both in the sense of collaboration, and in that of contamination between different media in the development of a new vision of the concepts of space, use, and sociality . The theme of the "future" - the constant thought of the whole of Western culture from the era of early industrialization forward - will be investigated in the variety of proposals for new domestic spaces and urban, to the extreme consequences caused by the stabilization of digital media in the proposed virtual reality. The topics of study will include the following topics: From the Village Outlets Department Stores. The city as a work of art impressionist and Situationist Paris. Visions of the contemporary flaneur. From 'Situationist International to Occupy Wall Street: new maps of the city. Radicals: art as anthropology of modern man. The city which is renewed: aesthetics of the window From the Crystal Palace to the Fun Palace. Internal hybrids: walways, malls, pedestrian areas, waterfront Aesthetics of superplaces: Art museums and environment House of the future: from architectural design to the foreshadowing of cinema. The final part of the course is to examine the legacies of this revolution in interior in recent decades, leaving space for the direct voice of some of the great protagonists of the Italian scene. Will be organized visits to exhibitions and places relevant themes of the course, which will be considered as an integral part of the entire series of lectures.
