The master degree course Architecture and Innovation, of the Dipartimento di Progettazione e pianificazione in ambienti complessi participates to the Biennale_Sessions with a project developed within the research unit The Art of Building. The project, open to all Iuav students, has been organized in the form of a seminar, investigating the architectural language from the perspective of construction details.

 

Rem Koolhaas’ Venice Biennale, titled “Fundamentals”, deals with the basic components of  architectural language (i.e. door, window, ramp, etc.). Our research, rather than investigating the taxonomy of Fundamentals, focuses on their syntax. We suggest to investigate the syntax of the “architectonic sentence”: the joint where the faįade relates to the roof, the window to the wall or the wall to the ceiling



The connection point of architectural elements and structural parts is always of special significance to the architect's work as well as to the observer's eye. The structural soundness of a building and the effectiveness of its expressive articulation depend on this point of connection.

 

The exhibition presents 200 construction details of post World War II buildings of special architectural relevance drawn by Iiuav students. A detail section can synthetically express the constructive and architectural quality of a building: its exterior cladding, skeleton and palette of materials, whether it is a load-bearing wall or a simple infill. The students were asked to work in scale 1:10 redrawing construction details and preparing a series of thematic panels presenting an overview of contemporary architecture.

 

The exhibition includes also original material from many architecture and engineering offices. The designers were asked to make a statement about their notion of details and the role they play in their daily practice. Among the offices that accepted to participate there are: Burkhalter-Sumi, Barkow-Leibinger, Kahlfeldt Architekten, Werner Sobek, Artec Wien, Hermann Czech, Boris Podrecca, Dominique Perrault, Miller & Maranta, Conzett Bronzini Gartmann, Pascal Flammer, Peter Maerkli, Carlos Ferrater OAB, Studio Valle, C+S Architects, Tezuka Architects, Kengo Kuma, Emilio Tuņķn, Cino Zucchi Architetti, Bevk Perovic arhitekti, Shim + Sutcliffe, Park associati, Peripheriques Architects, Laps Architecture, Gigon/Guyer Architekten, Walt+Galmarini, Hild und K Architekten, Kahlfeldt Architekten, Labics, Elasticospa, Staufer+Hasler, Navarro Baldeweg Asociados.

 

Discussants to the seminar, 9th July 2014, 3 pm:

Prof. Arch. Pierre Alain Croset, Turin Polytechnic

Arch. Francesco Pagliari, “The Plan”

Ing. Olindo de Luca, Chief Operating Office Permasteelisa

 

All offices involved with the research are invited to join the tree-day event at the Biennale.
