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.

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.

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.

Yellowred is a publication that concerns architecture projects, built on preexisting architecture, converting, reusing, extending, downsizing or refurbishing it. Its main goal is to illustrate how buildings, in their inevitable transformation process, can be re-used. This publication will collect a number of projects that show a capacity to rediscover in the existing building hidden potentialities, transforming them in opportunities for the re-used building. It wants to talk about the strategies, themes, ideas and advantages of extending the lifespan of an existing structure, which has become a widely diffused practice due to today’s global commitment for what concerns sustainability. On the other hands Yellowred will look at examples from the past, showing that reusing existing buildings has always been part of architects’ concerns, for economic, social or cultural reasons.

Augusto Guidini (1853-1928) is numbered among the pioneers of Swiss art history and conservation, as well as one of the most learned architects of his age, together with Gottfried Semper, Karl Moser and Hans Bernoulli. Yet this recognition has not hitherto been accompanied by an adequate historiographical assessment. The Library of the Academy of Architecture, which preserves the libraries of many famous architects bequeathed to it, also holds Augusto Guidini’s professional library, and has now promoted this first monographic study of the achievements of the Ticinese architect. Enriched with a complete and detailed atlas of his works, It presents contributions reconstructing the human and professional attainments of this versatile artist, fine draftsman and outstanding intellectual of his time. Texts by Riccardo Bergossi, Stefania Bianchi, Valeria Farinati, Arnaldo Guidini, Chiara Lumia, Ornella Selvafolta, Angela Windholz.

The book deals with the troubled  issue of the relation between legislation and the protection of twentieth-century architecture through a constructive dialogue between the competencies of specialists in various fields: architects, curators, lawyers and security experts. The questions raised by the topic are analysed in theoretical terms but also in their immediate operative relevance, through a discussion of the principles underlying the principles subtending the regulations in force in various sectors. Texts in Italian, English, French or German by Bernard Bauchet, Martin Boesch, Marco Borghi, Andrea Canziani, Mauro Gandolla, Wolfgang Karl Göhner, Markus Gehri, Daniele Graber, Roberta Grignolo, Pierino Lestuzzi, Walter Maffioletti, Joe A.

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.

This volume brings together contributions from some of the leading scholars and designers on the protection of interior space, which in the work on the architectural heritage of the twentieth century is often overshadowed by the outer shell. The various issues raised by the topic are analysed from the theoretical and thematic viewpoints, as well as in immediately functional terms through discussions of operations already completed.Texts in Italian, English, French or German by Cecile Briolle, Andrea Canziani, Dorothea Deschermeier, Fernando Fiorino, Hartmut Frank, Emilia Garda, Michel Goutal, Roberta Grignolo, Justin Gunther, Jean-Baptiste Minnaert, Joris Molenaar, Marco Pogacnik, Bruno Reichlin, Jacques Repiquet, Giorgio Rigone, Arthur Ruegg, Paola Scaramuzza, Lynda S.

Structure is a fundamental aspect of construction. It concerns both engineers and architects who, however, often speak mutually incomprehensible languages. The purpose of this book is to foster dialogue between their two professions, so as to optimise their common work. Originating from the courses held at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, the book adopts a reader-friendly, lively and immediately understandable approach utilizing graphic visualisation.

By treating architecture as all the changes made by man to the earth’s surface, Leonardo Benevolo outlines in this book the widest history of the actual idea of architecture: from prehistory to Graeco-Roman and Far Eastern antiquity, from the Christian and Islamic middle ages to the century of science, from the industrial revolution to the new relations between city and territory.

Building a place means taking part in the choice of daily obligations met by the people who will be living in it, thereby orienting the adventure of a whole community. If this is how we envisage the architect’s mission, then a preliminary reflection is called for: on the relations that link people together and to their host environment.
