INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL
UNIVERSITY OF BRESCIA | Department of Civil, Architectural, Environmental, Land Planning Engineering and Mathematics
This International Summer School is an advanced and refresher course and, consequently, it aims at providing the opportunity to gain professional experience, including scientific knowledge and empirical research on the themes of the course. In particular the aims are:
- to provide methodological and empirical tools related to architectural and landscape design, to survey and reuse recently abandoned buildings of cultural value, witnesses and bearers of an unstable and unconsolidated historical memory;
- to manage the planning strategies regarding the building heritage both at the architectural and urban scales, enriching the figure of the technical designer with historical and socio-economic humanistic skills, with reference to the relationship between intervention on the building and effects on the local economy;
- to encourage the exchange between participants both in cultural terms and in terms of personal experience and knowledge;
- to activate an interdisciplinary contamination both from a theoretical and methodological point of view also among teachers coming from different backgrounds and research institutions.
The reuse of the NATO Base WEST STAR (site B) is a virtuous opportunity to understand the complexity that characterizes the contemporary urban landscape, both from a territorial and architectural point of view.
