Architecture for Heritage
HOW TO DIALOGUE WITH THE PAST TO DESIGN THE CONTEMPORARY
6th September 2021 / 12th November 2021
Internship at AIRES MATEUS, DAVID CHIPPERFIELD, BAROZZI VEIGA
Architects have always been asked to breathe new life into ancient architectures inherited from the past or into historical – often monumental – artefacts that no longer respond to the customs and needs of the contemporary society. Nevertheless, the ancient architectures tell our story, therefore deserve to be restored with interventions that bring along a hint of modernity and show the trace of the design activity. The “Architecture for Heritage” course has been created on these premises.
Its aim is training designers who will be able to understand and enhance the memory of historical architectures and take inspiration from them to carry out new interventions that both meet the new needs and are enriched by the link to the past. In a close dialogue between the ancient and the modern, between existing architectures and new interventions, it is possible to comprehend what has been and what is now, redesigning – through architecture – a historical line bound to be continued by future generations.
The students will learn about the most advanced survey strategies and redesign of historical architectures; therefore, they will be able to protect the ancient wonders without giving up on a contemporary approach to the project. They will acquire skills and experience in a field of design that is always present and offers continuous and valuable job opportunities.
The students will analyze the technical and compositional strategies to adopt in contexts that host outstanding existing architectures through the intervention on archaeological and industrial sites and focusing mainly on the accommodation and cultural use of historical buildings. The course will be made up of 80 hours of lessons, a 32-hour workshop and multiple lectures by well-renowned professional architects.

DESIGN OF A PAVILION FOR THE MONUMENTAL COMPLEX OF VILLA IMPERIALE
The course will be carried out in collaboration with Castelbarco Albani family, current owner of the property Villa Imperiale. Place of delight for intellectual and artist in every age, Villa Imperiale is, in the last years, in the centre of a refined cultural design oriented to generate in loco one of the most significant epicentres of artistic experimentation of the national context. In this sense, various concerts, exhibitions, and installations found in the Villa complex their frame, catalysing thoughts, and visions of different interpreters of the contemporary thought. The workshop requires the design of a new pavilion, oriented to host different events, in a refined and unprecedent relationship between modernity and historical architectures. A picturesque context surrounded by the greening of the park, that slightly east crash into the sea (San Bartolo mount), Villa Imperiale is the ideal background for design reflections that combine memory, nature, and contemporary intervention. For a better interiorization of the place, students will have the opportunity to stay and attend the class for three days at the Villa.
