Paolo Perulli. Econimia della velocità, Mendrisio Academy Press

La società mobile, liquida, interconnessa presuppone e richiede una velocità sempre più elevata nel movimento di persone, merci e informazioni, ma produce retroazioni. È la faccia della globalizzazione meno esplorata e invece cruciale. Senza le grandi navi dell’industria dello shipping non ci sarebbe l’economia globale delle merci progettate in America, prodotte in Cina e distribuite nel mondo. Senza informatica distribuita e mezzi di consegna istantanea non ci sarebbe l’economia di Amazon. Senza le piattaforme digitali non ci sarebbe il gigantesco mercato della grande distribuzione organizzata. Senza treni ad alta velocità non ci sarebbe la circolazione di persone tra grandi città che ha cambiato il modo di vivere e di lavorare. Si è quindi compiuta in pochi anni una mutazione storica: dall’industria di massa dell’automobile alla mobilità informazionale, cognitiva, personalizzata del nuovo secolo. Con impegni di capitali e tecnologie, consumo di risorse ambientali e impatti sull’ecologia e sulla vita quotidiana e l’identità delle persone. Aspetti di un fenomeno più grande e sottile, quello dell’accelerazione sociale. Che produce anche alienazione e disintegrazione. E oggi richiede un radicale ripensamento causato dalla pandemia. Verso quali mete l’intera società è messa alla rincorsa? Il volume esplora l’economia della velocità, i saperi tecnici che la rendono possibile e i paradossi sociali e ambientali che ne derivano. Testi di: Simonetta Armondi, Giuseppe Berta, Sergio Bologna, Andrea Bottalico, Luca Garavaglia, Paolo Perulli, Marco Ponti, Pier Paolo Puliafito, Marcello Tadini.

“The New over the Old was the title of the course I have held at the Academy in recent years, with the term ‘over’ indicating not so much the desire to conceal as conscious integration. In the relation between these two words lies the transition to the project, which we can identify as an attempt to represent the new distance between things. After sharing a path through my works, because the project is taught through projects, and I would not know how to do otherwise, but also with the precise support of a survey of the data accumulated in places, the final critical work of each student began, applied each year to a different Italian city. With the help of the five points (place, time, land, light, silence) identified as an interpretational sequence and trace to modify space, and abetted by the quiet of the studio sessions, we translated sensations into measurements, in keeping with a method aimed not at offering free or abstractly creative solutions, in the belief that architecture is transformed and cannot be improvised” (Paolo Zermani).

Architectural History and Globalized Knowledge. Gottfried Semper in London, Mendrisio Academy Press
Architectural History and Globalized Knowledge. Gottfried Semper in London, Mendrisio Academy Press

Gottfried Semper’s years of exile in London (1850-55) were a time of highly inspiring experiences. The London of the Great Exhibition offered the German architect an immense trove of objects for study and an intellectual environment that provided seminal impulses for his innovative cultural-historical theory of architecture. The present volume, resulting from a collaborative SNSF research project of the Institute for the History and Theory of Art and Architecture, Università della Svizzera italiana, and the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture, ETH Zurich, positions Semper as both an observer and actor in this period. It goes beyond focusing on Semper as an individual person and considers his work as a designer, teacher, and writer of architecture against the backdrop of the historical, architectural, and disciplinary surroundings. Texts by: Elena Chestnova, Murray Fraser, Michael Gnehm, Sonja Hildebrand, Mari Hvattum, Claudio Leoni, Kate Nichols, Alina Payne, Philip Ursprung, Caroline van Eck, Dieter Weidmann, Beat Wyss.

Il volume ha come oggetto la colonia Olivetti a Brusson, in Valle d’Aosta, costruita su progetto degli architetti Leonardo Fiori e Claudio Conte. Esempio emblematico delle politiche sociali di Adriano Olivetti, questo edificio rappresenta un caso di studio eccezionale per diversi motivi. I progettisti furono selezionati dopo un concorso che vide la partecipazione, nel 1956-1957, di oltre trenta professionisti, tra cui Carlo Scarpa, Marcello D’Olivo, Vico Magistretti. L’analisi dei progetti in gara offre dunque uno spaccato dell’architettura italiana, chiamata a cimentarsi con temi complessi e innovativi. Da un lato, il contesto alpino richiese una profonda riflessione sul rapporto tra architettura e ambiente naturale; dall’altro lato, l’aggiornamento delle teorie educative implicò la ridefinizione di una tipologia – la colonia – che il fascismo aveva caratterizzato a fini propagandistici. Nella colonia di Brusson si mise inoltre a punto un inedito sistema di prefabbricazione che si ripeterà, ogni volta aggiornato, in numerosi edifici negli anni successivi.

The three essays brought together here offer a specific reading of different phases of Galfetti’s achievement. Starting from a single project, they demonstrate how the idea of a territorial architecture has always linked the project in his work (on every scale) to the place, the landscape and the territory.

Tracce di una scuola. Accademia di architettura a Mendrisio 1996-2021, Mendrisio Academy Press

This book presents an outline of the foundation and growth of the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, established in 1996 as a faculty of the coeval Università della Svizzera italiana. The school was immediately distinguished by an educational range that sought to create a dialogue between different disciplines, only seemingly remote from architecture, with historians, philosophers, artists and scientists engaging with the work of architects and urban planners. And in retracing the first 25 years of the Academy, the author, a world-famous architect and one of the founders of the school, also recounts architecture experienced as a generational commitment in the face of environmental changes.

Paolo Portoghesi. I ponti di Borromini, Mendrisio Academy Press

“This evening, to avoid boring you with familiar matters, I will talk about Borromini as a bridge builder, though physically he never built any. To understand the sense in which the word ‘bridge’ is to be understood, I will give the definition that a philosopher gave, which I will have occasion to speak of again. ‘The bridge rises light and powerful above the river. It not only connects two banks that already exist. The connection established by the bridge firstly causes the two banks to appear as banks. It is the bridge that properly opposes one to the other. The one bank is detached from and opposed to the other by virtue of the bridge. The banks then do not simply bound the river as the nondescript edges of dry land. With the two banks, the bridge each time brings one and the other expanse of the surrounding landscape. It brings the river, the banks and the surrounding land into reciprocal closeness’. The banks that Borromini’s bridges distinguish and connect are many. Those we will talk about are six: the North and the South of Europe; decoration and the architectural organism; the forms of architecture and their meanings; composition and decomposition as a design method; virtual and real; architecture and life” (Paolo Portoghesi).

Through an analysis of the artistic and social dynamics underlying the organisation and direction of the important construction site of Como cathedral, on which painters, master glass-makers, goldsmiths and sculptors were active, and by retracing the historiography of the four brothers Rodari, the volume reconstructs the work of Tommaso and his workshop, reordering the chronology of some works and proposing a linear path from his early to his late activity.

This first “Quaderno” from the BSc course in “Construction Systems and Processes” is devoted to a building by Rino Tami from the fifties, the Avegno Depot of the Maggia S.A. Hydroelectric Workshops. The second year students at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, guided by professor Franz Graf, carried out practical work on the Depot articulated in the collection and analysis of original documentation, the redrafting of the building plans and the production of axonometric projections and constructional models made to scale. A selection of the material collected for the course, with the original drawings and period photographs, together with a historical reading of the building, a structural analysis and a selection of students’ works make up this issue, which is intended not only to demonstrate the presence in Ticino of a notable architectural work, but also to furnish the operators responsible for its conservation with pointers about appropriate ways of carrying out maintenance or restoration work.

The book contains many previously unpublished essays on the theory and history of twentieth-century art and architecture, written as a tribute to Bruno Reichlin, architect and professor at various universities, well known for having developed an innovative approach to the analysis of the work of architecture, based on the development of critical instruments derived from the criticism of the literary text and art, and for his battles to preserve the architectural heritage of the twentieth century. The collection is structured in five sections devoted to the theory of art and architecture; changes in construction processes resulting from the introduction of new materials, techniques and technologies; analysis of one or more architectural works; methodological issues and practices bound up with the restoration of modern buildings.   Texts by: Joseph Abram, Fritz Achleitner, Paolo Amaldi, Tim Benton, Christian Bischoff, Martin Boesch, Yve-Alain Bois, François Burkhardt, Mario Carpo, Jean-Pierre Cêtre Giorgio Ciucci, Jean-Louis Cohen, Jürg Conzett, Wessel de Jonge, Yvan Delemontey, Catherine Dumont d’Ayot, Kenneth Frampton, Hartmut Frank, Aurelio Galfetti, Roberto Gargiani, Franz Graf, Philippe Grandvoinnet, Giuliano Gresleri, Roberta Grignolo, Alberto Grimoldi, Thomas Hasler, Ulrike Jelhe-Schulte Strathaus, Jacques Lucan, Guillemette Morel Journel, Nicola Navone, Werner Oechslin, Carlo Olmo, Luca Ortelli, Danièle Pauly, Carlo Piccardi, Marko Pogacnik, Sergio Poretti, Arthur Rüegg, Martin Steinmann, Adolph Stiller, Christian Sumi, Letizia Tedeschi, Ana Tostões, Ruggero Tropeano, Ivo Trümpy, France Vanlaethem, Annalisa Viati Navone, Daniele Vitale.

The most complete and exhaustively examined study of the work of Panos Koulermos (1933-1999). A roving architect, Koulermos was of Greek Cypriot birth, British by upbringing but “Mediterranean rationalist” by vocation. He built in Britain and in Italy, in Greece, Cyprus and in the United States, and taught at the principal universities. He was also among the founders of the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture.

The book shows the big steps that Chinese urbanism is taking today. Beijing and Shanghai represent modern developments: one is the political and cultural center of the nation, while the other is its economic hub. Nanjing is taken as a typical case of Chinese urbanism, with its long history, natural geography, political events, and economic development. Texts in English by Josep Acebillo, Wowo Ding, Chen Zhao, Hongyan Xiao.

Microcosmi documents the didactic activity of Valentin Bearth’s Design Studio at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture between 2004 and 2012. It describes the methodology and the premises of the course within the context of the school and presents a selection of student projects. The didactic report is completed by the transcription of a lecture by Aurelio Galfetti, where the parallel presentation of two built projects, the Rotalinti House in Bellinzona and his house on the island of Paros, offers a significant contribution on the theme of inhabitation.

Giulio Minoletti (1910-1981), a Milanese architect, was notable for his remarkable versatility, his flair for experimental research into forms, materials, polychromes and hybrids between artistic genres that characterized his work as architect, builder and designer of housing estates, green areas, swimming pools and objects. This publication brings together the work of analysis of Minoletti’s works conducted by the students of the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture during the spring semester of 2013, in collaboration with the Archivio del Moderno in Mendrisio, which preserves Minoletti’s archives. The complexity and variety of his output is firstly placed in its Italian and international setting in a timeline that opens the publication, and then illustrated through a broad collection of projects. An initial essay, a brief biography and a portfolio of recent photographs complete the volume.
