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).

With a major retrospective, the Museo Cantonale d’Arte in Lugano pays homage to Massimo Cavalli (Locarno, 1930), an outstanding figure among the generation of Ticinese artists who made their names in the second half of the twentieth century. Comprising more than 300 works, the exhibition traces, from the early 1950s to the present, the development of Cavalli’s oeuvre which has always been distinguished by his unswerving attachment to an informal pictorial idiom, albeit developed over the years with impressive originality. This rich collection, together with the exhibition catalogue (the most exhaustive ever devoted to this artist), offers a comprehensive survey of Cavalli’s paintings whilst also covering his equally intense graphic.

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.

«Along with Pierre Chareau’s Maison de Verre, Paris of 1932, and Adalberto Libera’s Casa Malaparte in Capri of 1938, the Villa Girasole, finally launched on its diurnal cycle in 1935, now begins to assume its rightful place as one of the eccentric masterpieces of twentieth century architecture» (Kenneth Frampton).

The result of a competition held in the summer of 1967, the Swimming Baths of Bellinzona by Aurelio Galfetti, Flora Ruchat-Roncati and Ivo Trümpy offers the first concrete manifestation of that “territorial architecture” that has been a feature of architecture in the Ticino from the late sixties down to its most recent developments. Drawing on largely unpublished materials preserved in the Archivio del Moderno, supplemented with drawings, photographs (historical and current), documents from the private archives of the architects, and other public and private records, the volume presents a critical reading of the work while retracing its history: from the competition to the development of intermediate variants down to the drafting and completion of the final project.

Texts by Bruno Reichlin, Nicola Navone, Martin Steinmann, Franz Graf and Monica Sciarini.

Built in Milan between 1954 and 1958 to provide a home for children in difficulty, the Marchiondi Spagliardi Institute by Vittoriano Viganò represents, through its innovative educational program, its “neo-Brutalist” vocabulary and its material nature, a phase of outstanding interest in European architectural research. This volume presents a critical reading of the work by many voices, conducted through the interpretation of previously unpublished materials from the Viganò family, the architect’s professional archives, and the archives of the client, the contractor and other professionals.

Texts by Bruno Reichlin, Letizia Tedeschi, Alberto Grimoldi, Franz Graf, Francesca Albani, Gianni Ottolini, Valeria Farinati.

This nineth issue of the series “Quaderni” from the BSc course in “Construction Systems and Processes” is devoted to the Case Terenzio (1969-1971), by Roberto Bianconi. The second year students at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, guided by professor Franz Graf, carried out practical work on the Houses 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.

“To lay a solid foundation for the teaching of the theory of landscape architecture, we need to start by developing a critical atlas of the works created during the short history of the discipline. We need to identify, analyse and interpret these works, which means engaging in a true hermeneutic activity. Research activities in the field of landscape architecture should start here, from the unwritten history of the discipline. This activity will have to proceed in a comparative and open way, scrutinising across a broad range everything that can enter into a (reasoned) repertoire of landscape architecture. As long as such an instrument is lacking, the teaching of the subject will always remain reductive and approximate” (Michael Jakob).

This book is the outcome of a teaching project stemming from a consolidated approach to research into the contemporary city. It uses the case of Milan as an introduction to the study of the co-evolution between social city and physical city, an analytical and project theme that has marked modern urban planning.
The first part describes the process of formation of the city of Milan as it is in fact; the second presents a methodology for analysing the morphology of the territory of the municipality of San Donato Milanese, interpreted as part, as a district, of Greater Milan.

How can we avoid the creation of new ghettos or the proliferation of dormitory neighbourhoods? How does architectural action encourage ties between individual and family life and the social and collective dimensions? The special character of social housing lies in this twofold specificity: it responds to primary needs and offers scenarios of life capable of accommodating the complexity of public space. In doing so, the design of social housing is closely bound up with the urban fact and its deep social, cultural and temporal stratification. The design of important sections of the city constitutes the underlying motif of all 15 editions of WISH (Workshop on International Social Housing), a formative project launched in 2003 by the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture and recounted in this volume.

An artist of international renown based in Belgium, Koen Vanmechelen has centered his work on the relation between nature and culture throughout the course of an almost forty-year-long journey. Acclaimed for his exploration of the intersections between art and science, the artist tries, through his projects, to understand and pose questions on the great challenges of the 21st century. Sculptor, painter, performer, filmmaker, as well as a human rights advocate, the artist has rounded out his projects for the hybridization of both animals and plants with the contamination of the figurative arts, of materials and media making formal proliferation within conceptual complexity his own personal earmark on a creative universe that is as unique as it is unmistakable. This catalogue of the exhibition illustrates more than sixty-five pieces ‒ which were all realized between 1982 and 2019 ‒ intended to highlight the more strictly plastic aspects of his body of work.

This eighth issue of the series “Quaderni” from the BSc course in “Construction Systems and Processes” is devoted to the Scuola media Losone, by Livio Vacchini and Aurelio Galfetti (1972-1974). The second year students at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, guided by professor Franz Graf, carried out practical work on the building 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.
