In order to provide a higher service quality, and increase the provided benefits for the students, the Summer school date has changed to have its very first day on the 13th of July, 2019, and will end on the 25th of july, 2019.
This program is an advancement in the field of urban design and allows students to further specialize their education in an area that interests them.
Students who have undergone varied studies that include landscape design, engineering, architecture and planning are given an opportunity to explore and experiment with architectural and urban design.
Following the success of the first and second international summer school on "Advanced Urban Planning & Architectural Design” the third edition of this summer school will be held from the 13th to the 25th of July 2019 in partnership with The University of Rome Tor Vergata.
Known as Rome’s Ghost Stadium, Internationally renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava’s innovative sports city complex will be the focus, or rather case study undertaken, for the international Summer school on Advanced Urban Design for 2019.
Master-planned and intended to be immense enough to host the 2024 summer Olympics
Now, with the stadium’s raw concrete seating and a giant white cage above, the building is left to wither away.
A victim of neither poor construction nor conceit, the reason for its failure could be summarized in simple economics.
Since construction began in 2007, alteration to the project took place as to accommodate more seating.
Consequently, prices increased resulting in a cost estimate of 300 Million euros
–double the initial price.
Costs had risen further over the years due to several attempts for its completion starting with 130 M rising up to 200 M and reaching 600 M euros and only one
-third of the amount allocated for the project.
Several proposals have been made to re-use the existing structure. Planning Commissioner of the City of Rome, and an Associate Professor in Urban planning at Roma Tre University, suggested a conversion of the structure into a 130 hectare botanical garden.
Some believed it damaged the landscape and community and must be put down while others suggested changing it into the Faculty of Natural Sciences for the University of Tor Vergata.
In the face of gaps, unsuccessful feasibility studies, and flawed urban designing and planning of the area that led to the failure of the project, this summer school is an attempt at coming up with solutions to re-invent and develop the incomplete structure and re-consider & re-asses the master planning of the area.
The course combines theoretical and practical studies through the delivery of a series of lectures, seminars, and studio-based work.
