From restauration manuals to historical architecture atlases: recognition, knowledge and awareness for the conservation

L’esigenza di superare il tracciato delineato dall’uso dei manuali di recupero, intesi quali cataloghi per soluzioni architettoniche di ripristino e ricostruzione, rende indispensabile una riflessione sul reale bisogno di questi strumenti e sulle loro ripercussioni operative. Se i manuali, molto spesso, esprimono una visione statica e totalizzante dell’edilizia storica, attraverso una ripetizione pericolosamente meccanica e pedissequa degli elementi raccolti e descritti, l’atlante dichiara una concezione dinamica e “sempre aperta”, in cui ogni elemento rilevato è...

The lover, the devourer and the preserver

This article is not intended for dwelling on small distinctions and nuances, then I hope the necessary oversemplification of the subject will be forgiven. The purpose is to try to identify three approaches: the first one describes the decline of a model of town that was born with the Industrial Revolution and has lived up to the present day. The second one aim is to present some possible guidelines able to create a conceivable proposal...

Ettore Spalletti: Salle des départs in Garches

Ettore Spalletti re-invents in 1996 the morgue of Raymond Poincaré Hospital in Garches, just at Paris gates. It is a space without any religious symbol where corpses, already put in their coffins, can receive the last look of relatives and friends. This space is la Salle des Départs, that is the departures room, where each man – Muslim, Christian or non-believer - has to stay for the short transit between the world of life and...

The obsession of the enclosure

This paper is about the architectural experience which evolved through the design of cemeteries. Describing five different cases, we identified the relationship between the foundamental principle of the enclosure and its variations due to specific contextual conditions, both related to existing historical elements and to the local landscape. In this way the project for new cemeteries or their enlargement become an experimentation on "identity variations".

RE-SIGNIFICATIONS. The extension of the monumental cemetery in Lugo

The issue of re-signification is explored starting from the design for Lugo's Cemetery (Ra) new expansion. The request for a specular duplication of the existing enclosure around a drain in the surrounding countryside, raised the question of the new facility identity. The new plan refers to the monumentality of the old structure and of its subsequent expansions, by establishing a relationship of continuity and avoiding codified categories. Therefore neither mimesi nor antithesis, but rather synthesis...

Cemeteries in nature, as nature, as a city

The burial sites are destined to promote and protect the feelings of grief related to loss, indicating by means of a symbolic representation, a possible way of consolation, hope, reassurance and a serene feeling of remembrance: memory preserves and reassures; cemeteries are therefore witnesses of different cultural and religious identities. The images of cities keep on showing places intended and designed for memory; these places show us the inability of our culture to re-compose an...

“Under the sign of the Eagle”. German war memorials and cemeteries (1911-1945)

Wilhelm Kreis (1873-1955) was a prominent architect and prestigious professor. He directed and conditioned choices while being ambiguously on the margins of political activity, he dominated the architectural scene for almost five decades. Kreis took part in and to a certain extent directed, as architect and master, part of major events in architectural and urban planning that involved the biggest German cities up to the fall of the Third Reich. Together with Bonatz, Behrens, Tessenow,...
