Argomenti trattati

 

RESILIENT LANDSCAPE AND PUBLIC SPACES: STRATEGIES AND APPLICATIONS

The FINAL THESIS STUDIO is one of the most important moment within the Master, which wants to get an high level of education, oriented to work in intensive design research.

Trying to understand what is the role of the architectural design in the contemporary society, its main goal is oriented to give categories, methodologies and tools to manage the project at different scale of intervention, from the landscape, through the urban spaces, to the components of internal design.

The program covers a broad range of subjects related to the built environment and the main key–words, at the basis of the program, in coherence with Politecnico di Milano main directions, are:

MULTIDISCIPLINARY

INNOVATION

CREATIVITY  

 

Interdisciplinary contributions

The Workshop will include three interdisciplinay contributions that will be aimed to the deepening of the architectural and Landscape issues, according to a design-oriented look:

1.“ARCHITECTURAL FIELD” - ICAR 14;

2.“URBAN STUDIES” - ICAR 20;

3.“AESTHETICS OF LANDSCAPE” - ICAR 15

- the “Architectural field” will be recognized as the synthesis between artistic practice - a vocation that has always been present in our discipline - and a technical practice, which comes from scientific knowledge and belongs to the Polytechnic schools. Architecture in this sense is the place of physical, social and infrastructural relationships, impacting on the processes of space modification;

- the “Urban studies” will be oriented to the dynamics of transformation of contemporary territories, to the different scales of intervention, to the existence of “new spaces” of living and finally to the changing of the social practices in relation to new urban scenarios. A particular focus will be devoted to public and relationship spaces, for some time the privileged subjects of architectural and urban debate;

- ‘Aesthetics of Landscape’  is intended as how one should approach to the design (control) of the territory’s transformations in terms of architectural, urbanistic, productive (agricultural or industrial) settlements, departing from the importance that environmental issues must occupy within the scale of values during the decisional process. The landscape,as the peoples’ perception of the relationship between nature and anthropologic interventions, is seem like a system of systems and, hence, must obey the principles of  ecology to guarantee the survival of life in general and its quality.

 

Besides of each specific and oriented gazes, the three different disciplinary fields will together collaborate towards the same goal: the construction of an architectural and urban resilient project, able to react at the fragile and critic contemporary conditions.

 

Topic:

PROJECT FOR A TEMPORARY VILLAGE

Students are called to work on the development of a temporary village to be intended not just as low-impact transformations for the Olympic venue, but as a new collective structure for the contemporary needs.

The area of work is the entire territorial section from Milano (metropolitan and urban gate / plain) to Livigno (Alpine gate / mountain). During the design process students will choose the punctual locations for the project.

 

This general topic touches some contemporary issues of architectural design

TEMPORARY VILLAGE AND ECO-SUSTAINABILITY

A peculiarity of the 2026 Olympics is that there will be a very important focus on the concept of eco-sustainability. It will be evident in the building project for the construction of the infrastructures: will be used temporary buildings that can be used again in the future.

Private spaces

TEMPORARY HOUSING AND NEW ENERGIES

The Olympic Village Concept proposes an anti-waste philosophy, and will use high-tech energy sources, thanks to integrated systems of technologies.

Public spaces

TEMPORARY CLUSTERS AND PLACES OF SHARING

In and around the Olympic Village a series of complex and integrated collective spaces will be designed for the Games and for the future territories

The key-words are: Sustainability, Temporaneity, Regeneration, Ecological Corridors, Resiliency, Soft Approach, Special Housing, Collective Spaces.

 

Program:

The Design path is divided into three steps, each one corresponding to a specific time and a determined scale of intervention:

The tactical process

This step looks at promote local transformations able to trigger relevant effects at a larger scale. The tactical process aims to tackle urgent problems, through strategic and discrete actions, highlighting the crucial places of the city and their transformative potential.

This step forsees  a  study trip to the project area.

The strategical project. The students will here regard to a design approach focused on the notions of “context” and “belonging”. The object of study will the design of a public space, placed in an area in trasformation in the center of the international debate. Along this phase, students will develop a proposal of urban design able to retrain a part of the city in its various and interfering elements: built environment, open public spaces, spaces of relationships.

Focus on details. The third phase is more oriented on the elements of architecture, materials and design details. In this sense, the contents as well will have to answer to the most innovative roads of knowledge in the construction fields; they will act as a nodal points between the “urban” and the “relational” systems of the cities.

The third phase forsees  a final open critic in the presence of international guests.

 

In synthesis, during the project experience the students will cross different scales, times and fields of intervention. The laboratory will deal with the matters of landscape, of shapes in space as well as of single building design. Therefore, the project will be intended as a multifunctional organism, focused on the relationship between the “architectural construction” and the “external space”, between private and collective, open and closed space, interpreted according to the different relationships among forms, materials and contents. 

 

Organization:

From the methodological point of view, the Design Studio will be organized by team of students (from 2 up to 3), supported and coordinated by tutors.

Each group will work on a collective arealayout proposal

Each group will propose a mix program

The work involves the elaboration of sheets, models and movies for each step of the Studio

The teaching materials are varied, complementary and will be alternatively displayed throught the workshop.

 

Learning outcomes:

Advanced knowledge on architectural design

Understanding and completion of design process

Technical and creative control upon specific design demands

Design methodologies, creativity development and coherent representation techniques

 


Prerequisiti
 

Modalità di valutazione

Evaluation creteria

The evaluation will be carried out taking into account the quality of the project developed and the ability of the student to present it with reference to the topics and themes dealt with in the Studio.

The final evaluation will be determined by the contents of the project, by the candidates' exhibition capacity and by the student's work through all the Studio.
