Antonini, Broggini, Brunoni, Ferrini, Fischer, Jäggli, Marazzi, Roelly, Tami. Arsenale militare Biasca, 1940-1942, Mendrisio Academy Press

This seventh issue of the series “Quaderni” from the BSc course in “Construction Systems and Processes” is devoted to the Arsenale militare Biasca (1940-1942), a complex designed by  the architects Giuseppe Antonini, Giannetto Broggini, Bruno Brunoni, Giuseppe Ferrini, Ferdinando Fischer, Augusto Jäggli, Americo and Attilio Marazzi, Oswald Roelly, Carlo and Rino Tami. The second year students at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture, guided by professor Franz Graf, carried out practical work on the Arsenale articulated in the collection and analysis of original documentation, the redrafting of the buildings 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 buildings, 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.

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.

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.
