Crescere Con L’Architettura
BY NEOSTUDIO | ELEONORA BURLANDO, RICCARDO MISELLI
@ VOL 9
ON JUN 05, 2014
Nowadays it is interesting to reflect about the importance of the manual skill in the architectural practice. It is a needed task and a challenge to tackle: it deals with the future of architecture, with his civic role and with the possibility that technical knowledges could be still transmitted and spread in useful ways for our time. Showing you the Swiss program held by i2a “Crescere con l’architettura” it is a way to purpose you a talk about the effectiveness of a learning and working model which embeds the practical and manual behaviours. “Crescere con l’architettura” wants to show the potential of a learning model which shares the learning by doing principle: a learning method which shows the emerging
need of a practical volountee especially in the architectural subject, in order to reconsider the original role of our subject, so far from reality and real objects.
Letizia Carini, 27 years old from Milano. Master of Science in Urban Planning and Policy Design at the Politecnico di Milano in 2013. She is really interested in educational and pedagogical studies related to architecture. Her Master Thesis is about the relation between knowledge and doing where she investigates the importance of practice, manual skills and technical knowledge in architecture.
Silvia Ducart, from Cordoba (Argentina). Graduated in architecture at the FAU UNC of Cordoba, she moved to Switzerland in 1992. She worked as architect, graphic designer and illustrator and she also took part to research project about space, the importance of playing in childhood and handicap deseases. In 2001 she started working as an independent architect and collaborating with other studios in Ticino and in Zurich. In 2011 she started her experience with “Crescere con
l’architettura”, giving to the project a big contribute.

University of Tennessee Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism
BY JAMES ROSE
@ VOL 19
ON MAY 12, 2016
What can we do together that we can't do individually? This is the
question that serves to unite the efforts of UT College of Architecture
and Design, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and ORNL as partners in
the Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism. Based in the
downtown FabLab and taught in conjunction with Phil Enquist and
others from SOM and ORNL, the Governor's Chair studios challenge
students to tackle tough design problems. One such challenge is the
architectural application of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. In
the spring of 2015 a graduate architecture studio was tasked with
developing an understanding of the opportunities and limitations of
this new technology. These findings foregrounded the design and
construction of the AMIE prototype. More akin to natural processes
like seashell growth than familiar construction, the process of
designing and building AMIE has created a platform for global
leadership in this emerging field for UT, SOM, and ORNL.
Designing a Laboratory: Art, Architecture, and the Founding of Fermilab
BY KATIE YURKEWICZ
@ VOL 5
ON NOV 10, 2016
"The sculpture that straddles the lab's entrance appears symmetrical when viewed from below but asymmetrical from all over views, reflecting the view of broken symmetry that is crucial in modern physics."
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory looks like no other science lab on Earth—thanks to the vision of founding director Robert Wilson and artist Angela Gonzales. Under their aesthetic direction, architecture, sculpture, color, and design combined to produce a lab that was revolutionary for its time. In Designing a Laboratory: Art, Architecture, and the Founding of Fermilab from PechaKucha Night Batavia Vol. 5, Katie Yurkewicz shows off another side of the legendary physics lab.
