SEMINARIO ONLINE

Viaggio nell’ex Germania dell’Est trent’anni dopo la riunificazione

Il seminario esplora il rapporto tra il fenomeno della contrazione demografica, politiche urbane e la cultura progettuale. A partire da un viaggio nei territori dell’ex Germania dell’Est si è raccontano sei diverse “scene” in cui piani, progetti e politiche si sono misurati con il fenomeno della contrazione a partire dagli anni ‘90. Si tratta di una sequenza che disvela i caratteri principali, le dinamiche, le narrazioni, le ragioni e le ambiguità delle trasformazioni della città di fronte ad una lunga transizione. La prima scena riguarda la demolizione e trasformazione degli alloggi di edilizia sociale a Leinefelde – Worbis. La seconda scena si misura con le pratiche temporanee di appropriazione degli edifici abbandonati a Halle-Neustadt. La terza scena, osservata a Leipzig, mostra gli esiti di alcuni progetti di spazi verdi nei vuoti urbani. La scena della quarta situazione si misura con la scala del paesaggio e osserva, nella regione della Lausitz, gli straordinari sforzi di rinaturalizzazione di un territorio fortemente sfruttato dall’estrazione della lignite. La quinta scena ci porta a Hoyerswerda, dove l’emigrazione della popolazione giovane e l’invecchiamento di quella rimasta ha richiesto una la riduzione dell’infrastrutture sociali generando contestazioni e resistenze della comunità locale. La città doppia di Görlitz/Zgorzelec, sesta e ultima scena, si misura con le politiche di ripopolamento che mirano ad attrarre pensionati dall’Ovest.

Summer School on Workplace Management

ONLINE COURSE

IV Edition
Coworking Spaces

 

The nature of work has recently evolved, along with the way workspaces are used. This dynamic has important implications especially for the design, management and location of workspaces that must respond to new challenges. This course will help students and researchers to confront these new trends.

Through lectures, group work and virtual visits to different types of workspaces, participants will have to develop an innovative workplace strategy for an important company as Vodafone Italy, also taking into account the impacts of Covid-19 on these issues.

The school is co-organized by COST Action CA18214 “The geography of New Working Spaces and the impact on the periphery”, Department of Architecture, Built environment and Construction engineering (DABC), Department of Architecture and Urban Studies (DASTU) at Polimi, with Dipartimento di Eccellenza Fragilità Territoriali and the Real Estate Center of DABC Polimi.

The course targets students and researchers. Third week will be open also to practitioners that participate to the Evento di Formazione Permanente Planning, Design and Management of Workplaces Theory and Case histories of corporate workspaces.

The complete course offers the opportunity to develop a company coworking and, subsequently, to prepare a design brief for the new corporate spaces.

Città visibili

SEMINARIO ONLINE

Un evento in collaborazione con Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli

Città visibili  12-13-14 Maggio 2021

Un viaggio in tre tappe che parte dall’Italia, da Milano, e approda in sei metropoli del mondo: Vienna e San Paolo, Atene e Mumbai, Bogotà e Dhaka.

Un atlante animato da storie, dati, esperienze istituzionali e pratiche dal basso che ci aiuta a rispondere alla domanda: qual è il futuro delle nostre città se il modello urbano non garantisce il diritto alla casa, quello alla salute e al benessere ambientale e lavorativo?

Un progetto di Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli – nell’ambito dell’Osservatorio su Città e trasformazioni urbane e in vista dell’appuntamento FeltrinelliCamp Broken Cities – in collaborazione con il Dipartimento di Architettura e Studi Urbani del Politecnico di Milano.

Infrastructure and equipment

In spring 2018, we started a cross-departmental process across the 5+1 laboratories of the department and the research groups involved in the project.

The challenge was to systemise existing resources, to complete and update them, and establish which new equipment needed to be purchased.

The first equipment list outlines the planned purchases over several years: in the first year is €286,571, two items of equipment worth more than €40,000 have been included in the University’s two-year purchasing plan and are being put out to tender in the coming months.

A second list outlining equipment needs gathered by research fellows (hardware, software, databases, photographic and document storage tools), discussed and assessed with department technicians was decided in the CdD of 14 March 2019.

What do we mean by Territorial Fragility?

Fragility is an object or situation’s predisposition to radically change due to unexpected accidents. It can be understood in (at least) three different ways.

Firstly, fragility is an object or situation’s constituent feature. It is understood as an original state which, if natural, may be compatible with human action and, if artificial, may be a deliberate or unintentional design.

Secondly, fragility arises due to a departure from stability and resistance leading to deterioration.

Finally, fragility may be caused by a disruption of an evolutionary reinforcement process. This reduces ongoing transformations that have not yet stabilised and are open to other types of fragility, i.e. transformation mechanisms (plans, projects, rules, policies).

Based on these different interpretations, the Department’s project shall examine and deal with land fragility, starting from a recognition of the issues’ importance for our country and globally.
