The design studio is related to the lecture course on Conservation, reuse and practice of restoration, extending its themes with projects that address the issues of insertion in the territory, the built-up area, and the building, and dealing with intervention in individual spaces or environments recognized after careful analysis as worthy of conservation. Particular attention will be devoted to works and infrastructures built with public, institutional or private involvement, which for various reasons have lost part or all of their function, spatiality and original material qualities. Our research project will lead us not only to investigate “signature architecture”, often reduced to a state of neglect, but to rediscover anonymous works, which can be brought back to life through spatial redesign projects, and appropriate, relevant reinterpretations of the existing material and constructional factors.
