Cagliari. Continuity

Diploma 2019

Scizzo di Joao Nunes. Cagliari

The 18/19 Diploma will have Cagliari and its many problems of continuity as its central theme, with the school’s work being capable of contributing in important ways to their solution. The set of selected project sites comprehensively illustrates the themes of a city in profound transformation, in a period of an exceptional conjunction of circumstances. The political phase that the city is experiencing provides an outstanding opportunity to define and consolidate Cagliari’s great potential, in a complex process in which architecture participates as an important instrument and founding element. The Diploma work seeks to contribute to the successful outcome of Cagliari’s contemporary challenges by a process aimed at demonstrating the relevance of concrete project opportunities, as both elements of urban architecture and structural parts of a complex and coordinated system, capable of constructing the factors making for cohesion in a fragmented city.
