MusAA Summer School 2014

Program Outline and Goals 

The aim of the program is to gain knowledge of historic architecture’s formal genesis, in its components more structured, in order to understand, interpret and act in the contemporary city. The key concept is the continuity that the organic growth of a place implies: learning from existing condition means to prevent the fragmentation of urban development subjected to individualisms and private interests. 

This Summer School aims to provide students, by several means of investigations (including the sensory), the ability to recognize a historic building by multi-level reading, in order to define both an “architecture’s identity card” and a way “to give a new life” to the spaces. 

The workshop will focus mainly on five specific topics: 

1. History of architecture of the places and the relation between urban settlements and socio-economical milieu

2. Free hand drawing and drafting of architectureen plein air”, as a very important means to understand deeply the template of each architectural object; 

3. Geometric and architectural survey: documentation and registration of the past and comprehension of the relation between space and time perception; 

4. Representation of the generating idea of an architectural object as a means to understand the whole structure or part of it; 

5. Restoration proposal and basic project for re-use of ancient buildings.

Workshop Bioarchitettura Rurale

Didattica - Workshop

Il MusAAMuseoArchitetturaArte

in partnership con l’Agriturismo Caniloro

organizza un workshop sul tema

Bioarchitettura Rurale

con specifica attenzione su Le antiche strutture rurali di Lanciano

dal 08 Marzo al 30 Marzo 2014

Musaa - workshop Bioarchitettura Rurale - lu pajare


Il Workshop, che si compone di 6 incontri, ha l’obiettivo di riportare in auge la bellezza e l’ingegno di alcune strutture rurali locali come il Pagliaio, il Semenzaio e la Cannicciata.
Un tempo, la realizzazione di queste strutture era il risultato di conoscenze acquisite in secoli di esperienza e tramandate da generazione in generazione in forma esclusivamente orale.
In linea con questa tradizione cercheremo di trasmettere a tutti i partecipanti gli antichi saperi realizzando queste strutture in sito e con i materiali originali locali.
