Quinto appuntamento del ciclo con Franco Tagliabue Volonté, fondatore insieme a Ida Origgi di ifdesign, sul tema “LO SPAZIO SOCIALE”.

Quinto appuntamento del ciclo con Franco Tagliabue Volonté, fondatore insieme a Ida Origgi di ifdesign, sul tema “LO SPAZIO SOCIALE”.

Introduce
Egidio Raimondi, OAF-Ordine degli Architetti PPC di Firenze

Presenta
Paolo Posarelli, CISDU-Centro Internazionale di Studi sul Disegno Urbano

Questo incontro costituisce l’avvio della seconda sessione del Ciclo che indaga sui temi delle possibili risposte e strategie da mettere in campo attraverso il progetto: lo spazio sociale come presidio attivo e filo conduttore degli interventi su cui applicare un’energia progettuale; il ruolo attivo della comunità che riaccende il fuoco della ‘domanda di città’ e partecipa alla sua riconfigurazione.

Con Franco Tagliabue Volontè parleremo di come l’emergenza sanitaria che ha travolto il mondo può rappresentare un’occasione imperdibile per ripensare lo spazio pubblico come espressione profonda della/e comunità che lo animano.
Un’occasione/rivoluzione per chi a vario titolo

Con Franco Tagliabue Volontè parleremo di come l’emergenza sanitaria che ha travolto il mondo può rappresentare un’occasione imperdibile per ripensare lo spazio pubblico come espressione profonda della/e comunità che lo animano.
Un’occasione/rivoluzione per chi a vario titolo interviene nel progetto e per chi ogni giorno ha il diritto/dovere di arricchire la sua esperienza in uno spazio sociale condiviso.

“Ha ancora senso parlare degli attributi fisici dello spazio pubblico nell’epoca dell’immateriale e della smart city, nel quadro degli sviluppi delle città del mondo, tra migrazioni totali e crisi ecologiche?

Come possono le tematiche ambientali condizionare gli spazi pubblici?

È sufficiente confidare nell’innesto salvifico della cosiddetta ‘quota verde’ all’interno delle nostre città o è necessario indagare con maggiore coscienza il significato dei termini ambiente, paesaggio, ecologia?

Come riflettere intorno agli antichi e nuovi rapporti tra gli spazi aperti e le comunità che li abitano?

Come è possibile riscattarsi dagli stereotipi di spazi pubblici che per anni hanno annichilito e annientato le istanze sociali e che non potranno più a lungo rappresentare il modello di spazio pubblico che ogni epoca reclama?”

Questo incontro costituisce l’avvio della seconda sessione del Ciclo LA CITTÀ/LE CITTÀ che indaga sui temi delle possibili risposte e strategie da mettere in campo attraverso il progetto:

  • lo spazio sociale come presidio attivo e filo conduttore degli interventi su cui applicare un’energia progettuale;
  • Il ruolo attivo della comunità che riaccende il fuoco della ‘domanda di città’ e partecipa alla sua riconfigurazione.

StraDESIGN

Visioni e progetti dell'Università di Firenze

Una settimana tutta per il design. E’ StraDESIGN, una rassegna di incontri, mostre e workshop, che nasce per iniziativa del Dipartimento di Architettura dell’Università di Firenze. Da  lunedì 30 settembre 2019 a venerdì 4 ottobre 2019 sono stati alla ribalta i prodotti che nascono dalla ricerca e dall’innovazione, ma anche i progetti dei più giovani laureati usciti dai corsi di laurea in design, insieme a talk con la partecipazione di alcuni protagonisti del disegno industriale contemporaneo. Le iniziative si sono svolte principalmente tra il complesso delle Murate e il complesso universitario di Santa Verdiana.

StraDESIGN ci ha parlato di una disciplina, il design, divenuta sempre più pervasiva: dal prodotto alla comunicazione, dagli interni alla moda, ai servizi fino alle tematiche dell’innovazione sociale. Ma StraDESIGN ha raccontato anche la capacità, propria del design, di “sporcarsi le mani”, di intervenire concretamente sul reale, di farsi attore

StraDESIGN ci ha parlato di una disciplina, il design, divenuta sempre più pervasiva: dal prodotto alla comunicazione, dagli interni alla moda, ai servizi fino alle tematiche dell’innovazione sociale. Ma StraDESIGN ha raccontato anche la capacità, propria del design, di “sporcarsi le mani”, di intervenire concretamente sul reale, di farsi attore delle trasformazioni sociali. StraDESIGN è stata in fine un’esplicita citazione dell’esperienza dell’Architettura Radicale e del Controdesign della fine degli anni ’60 in cui i prefissi erano un voluto riferimento alle contemporanee esperienze della Pop Art e, a quella del Bolidismo degli anni ’80, due importanti contributi fiorentini alla storia del design italiano.

Karim Mousa

Architect

Karim Mousa’s Egyptian ethnicity led to many “descendant of the Pharoah” jokes in the five years he lived in Bergen, Norway working for the highly regarded design studio Mir. If only his colleagues had known his true claim to fame as a former international Taekwondo champion… Karim has lived abroad for more than a decade as he was based in Dubai for six years before Bergen, developing architectural work for global project design consultancies such as Dar Al-Handasah. Today, Karim is still kicking the martial arts sandbag and using his powers of art direction and worldly experience to bring unbuilt architecture to life via his visual design experiences and explorative approaches.

Città_Patrimonio e Progetto

Ciclo triennali di incontri organizzato da UD-Laboratorio di Urban Design del DIDA UNIFI

L’iniziativa rientrava in un ciclo di incontri tematici CITTÀ_PATRIMONIO E PROGETTO programmati per il triennio 2018/2020. L’intero ciclo è stato finalizzato ad esplorare le sfide che il Patrimonio architettonico-urbano-paesaggistico pone in chiave contemporanea e come affrontarle attraverso il Progetto nelle sue diverse e possibili declinazioni. La convergenza di questi temi si basa sulla consapevolezza che la salvaguardia e la valorizzazione del Patrimonio come eredità culturale possano contribuire al benessere e alla qualità della vita in città. Il ciclo di incontri è stato attivato in occasione dell’Anno Europeo del Patrimonio Culturale 2018 che promuoveva il patrimonio culturale come risorsa sostenibile per rafforzare il senso di appartenenza e i valori identitari da condividere in uno spazio comune europeo.

L’iniziativa rientrava in un ciclo di incontri tematici CITTÀ_PATRIMONIO E PROGETTO programmati per il triennio 2018/2020. L’intero ciclo è stato finalizzato ad esplorare le sfide che il Patrimonio architettonico-urbano-paesaggistico pone in chiave contemporanea e come affrontarle attraverso il Progetto nelle sue diverse e possibili declinazioni. La convergenza di questi temi si basa sulla consapevolezza che la salvaguardia e la valorizzazione del Patrimonio come eredità culturale possano contribuire al benessere e alla qualità della vita in città. Il ciclo di incontri è stato attivato in occasione dell’Anno Europeo del Patrimonio Culturale 2018 che promuoveva il patrimonio culturale come risorsa sostenibile per rafforzare il senso di appartenenza e i valori identitari da condividere in uno spazio comune europeo.

 

Il tema del primo incontro, tenutosi il 16 maggio 2018 presso MAD, dal titolo “Piazze minori nel centro storico di Firenze”, riguardava quell’insieme di piazze situate all’interno del tessuto storicizzato fiorentino che, nonostante il loro valore di posizione, versano in una condizione di residualità. A causa di una serie di fenomeni, più volte sottolineati dall’UNESCO (gentrification, mobilità non sostenibile, incuria ed abbandono), queste “piazze minori” il più delle volte sono escluse dai circuiti di maggior interesse turistico, culturale e commerciale anche perché, più in generale, sono occupate impropriamente da funzioni incompatibili con la vita ed i desiderata dei propri abitanti, residenti ma anche city users e turisti. Per questi motivi si trasformano da luoghi di relazione in luoghi marginali, aree prive di ruolo, sottoutilizzate o degradate che, in quanto tali diventano non-luoghi. La finalità dell’iniziativa è quella di fare un focus su queste tematiche riflettendo su come leggere, reinterpretare, rigenerare, progettare e ripensare questo fondamentale sistema, vitale per il tessuto urbano del centro storico fiorentino (e non solo).

Hanno partecipato Valentina Gensini – Direttore Artistico. MAD Murate Art District, Saverio Mecca – Direttore DIDA, Antonio Capestro – UNIFI, Patrizia Laudati – Directeur Adjoint Laboratoire DeVisu. Université de Valenciennes et du Hainaut-Cambrésis, Franco Mancuso – ANCSA Associazione Nazionale Centri Storici Artistici, Marisa Fantin – INU Istituto Nazionale di Urbanistica, Florian Nepravishta – FAU Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism, Tirana, Oberdan Armanni – già Presidente della Commissione Territorio e Ambiente del Q1 del Comune di Firenze, Khaldoun Zreik – Digital Humanities Department | University Paris 8, France, Maria Concetta Zoppi – UNIFI, Gabriele Nannetti – MiBACT Soprintendenza ABAP FI-PT-PO, Fabio Capanni – UNIFI.

 

Il tema del secondo incontro del ciclo Città Patrimonio e Progetto è stato Arno tra permanenza ed effimero, che si è svolto il 4 marzo 2019 presso MAD.

A diversi anni dall’alluvione Firenze inizia a recuperare il rapporto con il suo fiume stringendo nuove alleanze con la città ed il territorio. Dopo gli anni siglati da una cultura della paura, dopo le commemorazioni per il cinquantenario per ricordare ed imparare dal tragico evento del ’66, oggi Firenze ha smesso di volgere le spalle al suo fiume. Si va affermando una nuova consapevolezza che questa vitale presenza naturalistica possa ancora essere una “risorsa” da ripensare, con diverse declinazioni, all’interno di uno scenario propositivo e implementabile nel tempo. L’iniziativa, rileggendo la complessa relazione tra la città ed il suo fiume, attiverà un dibattito su come progettare un nuovo rapporto, tra permanenza ed effimero, per una rinnovata cultura e visione dell’Arno.

Hanno partecipato Valentina Gensini-Direttore Artistico MAD Murate Art District, Antonio Capestro-Direttore Scientifico UD-Laboratorio di Urban Design del DIDA, Patrizia Laudati-Directeur Adjoint Laboratoire DeVisu. Université de Valenciennes et du Hainaut-Cambrésis, Cinzia Palumbo-Direttore CISDU-Centro Internazionale di Studi sul Disegno Urbano, Oberdan Armanni- CISDU, Jessica Carione, Mattia Locci, Roberto Melosi, Andrea Puri, Aida Riahi, Gabriele Salimbeni, Simone Barbi-DIDA, Milena Blagojevic, Angela Fiorelli, Vanessa Stella, Diana Marcela Torres

 

Il terzo incontro si è svolto il 16 maggio 2019 e ha avuto come titolo Patrimonio tra materiale e immateriale traccia / simbolo / trasmissione.

La giornata studio intendeva far emergere gli elementi epistemologici, teorici e metodologici, necessari per superare la dicotomia materialità/immaterialità esistente nei differenti approcci, sia scientifici che operativi, sul patrimonio. Il postulato teorico più innovativo alla base delle strategie di salvaguardia del patrimonio, a partire dalla Convenzione Unesco del 2003, è il superamento della separazione tra i concetti di materialità e d’immaterialità. Questa dualità del patrimonio architettonico e urbano, tra l’aspetto visibile delle forme materiali ed il loro rinvio a dei riferimenti immateriali – al non visibile, al senso – può essere declinata secondi tre dimensioni: – La dimensione storica: Le forme dell’architettura sono le tracce del passato, le tracce cristallizzate, nella pietra, della storia della società e della cultura che le hanno prodotte; – La dimensione sincronica: Ogni forma è percepita come un segno “in praesentia” come un simbolo portatore di significati, di senso, e di valori identitari, corrispondenti a un momento preciso della loro vita; – La dimensione proiettiva: Le forme dell’architettura sono artefatti, di cui bisognerà garantire la durabilità fisica e semantica, da trasmettere alle generazioni future.

Hanno partecipato Valentina Gensini-Direttore Artistico MAD Murate Art District, Carlo Francini-Responsabile ufficio UNESCO Comune di Firenze, Antonio Capestro-Direttore Scientifico di UD Laboratorio di Urban Design | DIDA, Patrizia Laudati-Directeur Adjoint Laboratoire De Vusu Universitè Plytecnique Hauts De France, Francoise Albertini-Universitè de Corse, Vincent Becue-Universitè de Mons, Pascal Lardellier-Universitè de Bourgogne, Franco Mancuso-IUAV – Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, Sylvie Merviel-Universitè Polytechnique Hauts de France, Cinzia Palumbo-CISDU Centro Internazionale Studi Didegno Urbano, Alessandro Rinaldi-DIDA Università degli Studi di Firenze, Daniel Schmitt-Universitè Plytecnique Hauts de France, Ulisse Tramonti-DIDA Università degli Studi di Firenze; In videoconferenza Marc Mequignon-Universitè Touluse 3, Jean-Pierre Migno-Univesitè Toulouse 3.

Il progetto del temporaneo. Tra ricerca e formazione: dispositivi per l’arte, la cultura, il patrimonio

di Antonio Capestro e Leonardo Zaffi

Presentato il 23 ottobre 2018 presso MAD Murate Art District, il libro documenta, attraverso il racconto di alcune esperienze sui temi dell’allestimento, dell’installazione, dell’esposizione condotte in collaborazione dai due autori, un’attività di ricerca e di formazione più ampia sul progetto delle piccole architetture effimere e temporanee. Il tema comune di riferimento per tutte queste esperienze è la valorizzazione dei contenuti scientifici e culturali che trovano la loro espressione attraverso eventi, convegni, mostre d’arte e architettura, installazioni. Il volume offre due possibili spunti di riflessione sul tema delle relazioni che s’instaurano fra spazi effimeri e contesti storici attraverso il progetto per prefigurare un ulteriore layer di senso sullo sfondo durevole di architettura e città e individuare una specifica dimensione più costruttiva del temporaneo dove i percorsi ideativi si connettono strettamente agli aspetti apparentemente più tecnici legati

Sono documentati cinque progetti che si legano al tema del patrimonio storico e culturale: quattro a Firenze nel Centro storico tutelato dall’Unesco e uno nel Palazzo Podestarile di Montelupo fiorentino. I progetti rappresentano esempi applicativi di un percorso di ricerca strettamente collegato alle attività didattiche del Laboratorio di Architettura e Autocostruzione del Dipartimento di Architettura di Firenze del quale gli stessi autori sono stati fondatori e sono attuali responsabili.

Reinventare lo spazio pubblico. La storia di Piazza dei Ciompi e le sue trasformazioni

Conferenza e workshop a cura di Pablo Georgieff per ripercorrere le trasformazioni della piazza dei Ciompi, Firenze

Una conferenza e una mostra per ripercorrere le trasformazioni della piazza dei Ciompi a partire dagli anni 30 del secolo scorso. Uno spazio pubblico nato dal piano demolizioni messo in atto dal Ministro Bottai nel 1939 che ha visto molteplici cambiamenti nel corso degli anni; dalla sua realizzazione alla collocazione della loggia del pesce di Vasari nel 1955 al cambio di destinazione d’uso, da mercato ortofrutticolo prima a mercato d’antiquariato poi con apertura diurna e chiusura delle strutture ospitanti gli botteghe durante le ore serali. La ricca storia del luogo da spazio pubblico a spazio chiuso e il recente smantellamento delle coperture di amianto con spostamento del mercato, sono stati lo spunto, per il corso di Laurea in Architettura del Paesaggio del Dipartimento di Architettura di Firenze, per organizzare un Workshop guidato dal celebre paesaggista francese, Pablo Georgieff con il suo Atelier COLOCO e  diretto da Gilles Clement.

Stalker Is a collective subject, found in 1995, that engages research and actions within the landscape with particular attention to the areas around the city’s margins and forgotten urban space, and abandoned areas or regions under transformation that are referred to here as “Actual Territories.” In may 1999, Stalker, with the Kurdish community of Rome, occupy the building of the ex-veterinarian in Campo Boario (ex slaughter house), naming it “Ararat”, in order to experiment a new shape of contemporary public-space, based on the acceptance and hospitality. Since 2002 Stalker promotes a is an interdisciplinary research network named Osservatorio Nomade. A net shaped each time around a research and action site. Just like it happened for G.R.A Geografie dell’Oltrecittà (2009), Suilettidelfiume (2007), Campagnaromana (2006) and Immaginare Corviale (2003 – 2005) in Rome. Along the via Egnatia (2003 – 2004) from Rome to Istanbul, across the Roma world from Rome to the ex Yugoslavia, with Campus Rom (2008).

LAC – Laboratorio Arti Civiche (LAC) is an interdisciplinary research group founded in 2011, which aims to interact creatively with the citizens through action research and projects, looking for a collective and shared transformation of the built environment. Starting from many experiences led by Stalker, Laboratorio Arti Civiche has lately been involved in studies and projects on informal settlements and squat-occupied spaces in Rome; other projects focused on inclusive dwelling and housing emergency, possibilities of self-construction, re-creation and reappropriation of public spaces. A particular focus has been on the social and spatial exclusion of Roma people and the redefinition of their right to the city.

Al programma di conferenze si è affiancato il workshop ArnoLab018, un laboratorio creativo open air, finalizzato alla realizzazione in loco di installazioni effimere tra arte e paesaggio. Attraverso modalità sperimentali partecipate e operative i protagonisti di ArnoLab018 hanno reinterpretato e assemblato tra loro materiali naturali riciclati attraverso linguaggi artistici e multimediali per creare arredi urbani leggeri, punti di sosta e rifugi temporanei. I materiali di risulta derivanti dalle fluttuazioni del fiume  sono stati messi a disposizione dal Consorzio di Bonifica 3 del medio Valdarno e le essenze autoctone sono state fornite dal raggruppamento Carabinieri Biodiversità reparto di Vallombrosa.
