Obiettivi formativi
Today from the urban and architectural point of view, two main planning paradigms face the Mediterranean sea. On
the one hand, overall in northern Africa, the impressive growth of some cities. Such growth caused a deep crisis to
the traditional tools for the urban planning in favour to more informal developments of villages and cities. On the
other hand, especially in Europe, the urban project is much more oriented to renovation with no soil consumption by
built space, architecture and infrastructure paying much more attention to landscape and recycling.

Prerequisiti

Contenuti del corso


The Atelier starting point is set on the “transformation” places as cities and territories facing the Mediterranean
shores, from the interpretation of the changing relationships between subjects and places, environment and urban
contexts in order to guide the student towards the best architectural planning techniques for the transformation and
modification of the existing city and/ or the development of new ones.

Metodi didattici
The course develops lessons and practical planning exercises and it aims at expanding planning skills paying
attention to architecture. It provides a deep coordination among disciplines integrated in the atelier according to the
specific theme.
The suggested topic allows a general approach which could be applied in several different contexts at the same
time where the atelier could become a link space between teaching and research.
The organization of a workshop in the sub Sub-Saharan Africa is considered as a complementary activity in order to
check the feasibility and sustainability of the different project proposals and strategies.

Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento


The course includes seminars which set the step in developing the planning exercise. These could be the meeting
and exchanging places for knowledges useful to the project. Mid excises, according to previously planned
deadlines, will tend to spread the knowledge tools for the project.
The final examination will focus on the display of the project exercise, through the traditional representation, and
some theoretical knowledge of the different topics.
