Overview

As a result of the success of the first workshop in Italy in 2015, IEREK has proudly hosted the second Architecture Week!

The 2nd Architecture Week were held before the “Green Urbanism” (GU) Conference, it was held in Roma Tre University, Italy

It offered an opportunity to bring people from diverse places, cultures, and backgrounds together to collaborate and exchange information with one another.

 

The workshops sessions contained:

Workshop 1 “Searching for urban patterns”:

It is valuable to search for repetitive spatial configuration patterns at various scales at the edges of historical cities and across case studies; these patterns would assist, as indicators, in further understanding of the spatial, land-use and architectural conditions at historic edges in terms of their interrelation with their surrounding context. Therefore, measuring the connecting features, such as permeability, visual accessibility and the sense of continuity, related to the current urban form, architectural features or a specific series of activities would reveal such urban pattern. This workshop emphasizes on the quantitative relationship between different urban variables, including spatial, architectural and environmental features.

 

Workshop 2 “URPAs- Urban Regeneration of Peripheral Areas”

The workshop will be discussing:

  • Green Design
  • Urban Design
  • Technologies for smart cities

Output of the workshop will be social involvement, urban recycling, and new technologies for green buildings.

Workshop 3 “DGI – Designing (Green, Blue, Grey) Infrastructures. A key turn in Urban Landscape”

 

The contemporary cityscape is organized with infrastructures and networks through which people, energy, food, physical and intangible communications and, not least, waste, altogether move.
Despite such a crucial importance, the infrastructure is still exclusively the result of policymaker’s decisions and then designed by engineers. Thus the complexity of infrastructural systems is only conceived in terms of pure functionality and so developed and managed merely in technocratic terms.

Final Case Study “Designing infrastructure: a key turn in urban landscape, case study the valle Aurelia- Vigna Clara train line- Rome”
