The conference, taking place for the fifth consecutive year in Venice, will coincide with the last weekend of the 14th “Biennale di Architettura” (June 7th – November 23rd) directed by Rem Koolhaas (Oma).

 

It chooses as its keyword the same invented for the 14th Biennale: “Fundamentals”. It means that this time the discussion will revolve not around architects (and their inventions/solutions) but around buildings and their features characterizing their success in terms of performances satisfying fundamental requirements.

 

Which are the fundamentals identified by the Iuav research team, on the basis of which presentations from experts from different parts of the world are selected?

Which are the fundamentals identified by the Iuav research team, on the basis of which presentations from experts from different parts of the world are selected?

First and foremost: “Innovation in Architectural Envelopes”; but also: “Interface between Skin and Structure”, “Life Cycle Thinking in Tall Buildings”, “Fast Mobility- Vertical and Horizontal”, “Living Green on High Rises

 

La Conferenza si svolge per il quinto anno consecutivo a Venezia e coincide con il fine settimana conclusivo della quattordicesima mostra della “Biennale di Architettura” (7giugno- 23novembre 2014) curata da Rem Koolhaas.

 

La Conferenza riprende lo stesso tema scelto per la quattordicesima Biennale: “Foundamentals”. Ciò significa che i contenuti delle presentazioni non riguardano gli architetti, bensì gli edifici, le loro caratteristiche e le loro capacità di soddisfare requisiti fondamentali.

 

Quali sono i foundamental individuati dal gruppo di ricerca Iuav, sulla base delle presentazioni selezionate fra molti esperti internazionali?

Primi fra tutti: “Innovazione dell’involucro architettonico”; ma anche: “Interfacce tecnologiche fra involucro e struttura”, “Ciclo di vita degli edifici alti”, “Mobilità verticale e orizzontale”, “Tecnologie a verde per edifici alti”.
