Il senso degli architetti per il paesaggio

 

Il paesaggio in primo piano oggi sulla scena contemporanea è di fatto un nuovo paesaggio, che deve fare i conti senza infingimenti con le rapide trasformazioni dei territori, con le problematiche gravi del consumo delle risorse, dei mutamenti climatici, della crisi economica e che tuttavia non può e non deve dimenticare i temi della storia, della memoria e soprattutto della cultura (materiale e non) su cui anche i nuovi paesaggi possono e debbono riconfigurarsi.

Sovrascrivere il palinsesto-paesaggio è ineluttabile per affermare una seria cultura progettuale nei confronti della stessa “percezione delle popolazioni” cui la Convenzione Europea del paesaggio si richiama. I modi di questa sovrascrittura sono da trovare in un dialogo interdisciplinare ricco e profondo e nella stessa rifondazione che ne può derivare delle discipline del progetto.

 

Il carattere relazionale e la centralità dei fattori tempo e movimento nel progetto relativo al paesaggio – indagabili nelle loro radici storiche che affondano sia nelle esperienze dell’antichità classica sia in quelle della civiltà orientale o ancora nelle esperienze pre-moderne del romanticismo e del pittoresco – connettono la ricerca architettonica a un filone di interessi strettamente legato al pensiero estetico-filosofico e scientifico, rintracciabili soprattutto nel campo della fenomenologia della percezione e delle geometrie non-euclidee, nonché nelle sperimentazioni delle arti legate ai concetti di motion-emotion, dal cinema alla danza, dalle visual arts alle varie arti performative fino alla environmental art. 

 

In occasione del ventennale della firma a Firenze della Convenzione Europea del Paesaggio, i November Talks 2020 presso l’Università Iuav di Venezia si propongono di offrire dei contributi al dibattito attorno al rapporto che l’architettura contemporanea ha spesso cercato di istituire con gli aspetti figurativi, spaziali e topografici del paesaggio, nonché con le sue caratteristiche di universo percettivo dinamicamente mutevole, sviluppando anche un evidente interesse alle problematiche ecologiche.

Tale attitudine ha favorito un frequente e ricco dialogo fra gli architetti, i paesaggisti e gli artisti “ambientali”, nel tentativo di confrontare e coniugare gli strumenti del progetto d’architettura con quelli del progetto di paesaggio e dell’arte ambientale.

I quattro architetti invitati per il ciclo di talks quest’anno sono scelti nella vasta rosa di importanti architetti contemporanei la cui ricerca ha sviluppato in modi originali e peculiari il tema dei nuovi paesaggi al punto di connotare profondamente secondo tale influenza le loro risposte progettuali.

 

 

The architects’ sense for the landscape

 

The landscape in the foreground today on the contemporary scene is in fact a new landscape, which must deal with the rapid territorial change, with the serious problems of resource consumption, climate change, economic crisis, and which however cannot and must not forget the themes of history, of memory and above all of culture (material and non-material) on which even new landscapes can and must be reconfigured.

Overwriting the palimpsest-landscape is inevitable to affirm a serious design culture towards that "perception of the populations" to which the European Landscape Convention refers. The ways of this overwriting are to be found in a rich and profound interdisciplinary dialogue and in the re-foundation that can derive from this for the design disciplines.

 

The relational character and the centrality of time and movement factors in the landscape project - investigable in their historical roots that sink both in the experiences of classical antiquity and in those of Eastern civilization or in the pre-modern experiences of romanticism and picturesque - connect architectural research to a stream of interests closely linked to aesthetic-philosophical and scientific thinking, traceable above all in the field of the phenomenology of perception and non-Euclidean geometries, as well as in the experiments of the arts linked to the concepts of motion-emotion, from cinema to dance, from visual arts to various performing arts up to environmental art.

 

On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the signing in Florence of the European Landscape Convention, the November Talks 2020 at the Iuav University of Venice aim to offer contributions to the debate around the relationship that contemporary architecture has often tried to establish with the figurative spatial and topographical aspects of landscape, as well as with its characteristics of dynamically changing perception, also developing, on the other hand, an evident interest in ecological problems.

This attitude has fostered a frequent and rich dialogue between architects, landscape architects and "environmental" artists, in an attempt to compare and combine the tools of the architectural design with those of the landscape design and environmental art.

The four architects invited for the cycle of talks this year are chosen from the wide array of important contemporary architects whose research has developed the theme of new landscapes in original and peculiar ways, to the point of profoundly connoting their design responses according to this influence.

Sandro Marpillero + Linda Pollak (MPA Architects)

MPA’s multidisciplinary design practice, rooted in the strengths and sensibilities of its partners, spans architecture, landscape, and urban design, enabling us to mine the rich and often unseen potentials of a project and site.  Their award-winning projects in the United States and elsewhere receive acclaim for the skill with which they redefine their contexts at multiple scales, not only realizing innovative and technically robust design solutions, but enriching a project’s productive impact on its surroundings.

Any project intervenes in natural and built environments that already exist, which have been invested by social practices long before new needs sponsor their transformation.  For MPA, design is a way to take things that exist in the world and intensively revalue them through invention and design innovation.  Closely examining what is, they derive meaning and express identity through reciprocity: inside and outside, architecture and landscape, existing and new.  Their multi-scalar, multidisciplinary thinking enables us to take on challenging sites and tight budgets: discovering synergies between client, program, and place, they invent solutions that transform liabilities into benefits.
