Urban transformations imply losses and gains. The phenomena of adaptation to the problems of the twenty first century are complex and sometimes radical.

Lisbon Archicad Summer School @ ULHT, 25-29 September 2017

Archicad Summer School is an international event promoted by ACUA – Archicad Users Association.

Universidade Lusófona will host the first edition held outside of the UK.

Experienced speakers and tutors will manage several workshops, lectures, and training programs for all levels of proficiency in Archicad, workflow and OpenBim.

Applications are open, and current and former DAU students can enjoy a special price on the certified course of Basic Archicad Training, by entering their student number at the registration page.

Lecture by MIT’s Katia Zolotovsky, 11 Nov 2016

Katia Zolotovsky, a researcher at MIT, will lecture on “Guided Growth – The Interplay between Shape, Material and Life”, on Nov 8th, 11:30 AM, at the Green Room (G2.2).

This free-admission lecture is jointly organized by DAU and LabART Architecture Lab – Research Center.

Katia Zolotovsky’s work uses bacteria cells and applies computational methods of synthetic biology to grow active and adaptive building components for architecture. As both an architect and a biologist by education, Katia creates workflows that combine methods from architectural design, materials science, and synthetic biology.

Lecture Utopia and the Anthropocene by Stamatis Zografos, 11 May 2017

Utopias are often set outside scientific time. They can be set in the past or future, or even in mythical time. They comprise constructs of our imagination that can provide escape from everyday life.

Yet by doing so they also highlight issues that render our world and our everyday life rather problematic. Can utopias therefore be considered as tools to improve this world? Or are they merely reactions against it?

Utopia and the Anthropocene

From Sir Thomas More’s Utopia (1516) to the global uncertainty of the Anthropocene today, the concept of utopia has been used widely and in various contexts.

Resume

This project as the goal to investigate the expected function of the architect as a reflexive practitioner and simultaneously as a builder in the real scale of its concepts.

Keywords: intelligent building, builder Architect, Post renascence, rapid prototyping, authorship sustainability, languages of design, computing architecture-as-built, augmented intelligence


State of the Art and objectives

Study of cases related to the research object. Proof of concepts thought real building(s) prototype.


Methodology

One of the tasks of this project is to debate the definition of Alberti`s function of modern architect activity, that, by the time of De Re changed from a construction manager of the works to a thinker and expert of the Lineamenti as a method to achieve Concinnitas.

The methodology to develop this research will be one set using new technologies that support AEC activities in order to allow strengthen the gap between the architectonic conceptual act and the building action.


Problematic and project development

Project will be developed through an analyses of different case studies and a consistent number of realizations in the field of digital fabrication and individual manufacturing applied to the AEC sector


Evaluation and diffusion data

Results will be published in scientific paper and exposed in public exhibition in a museum.

Resume

Brownfield sites refer to previously developed stretches of land that were used for industrial and commercial purposes. These sites are either empty or contain derelict structures, and they are often contaminated by the activities that once took place there.

Today there is an increasing interest in the redevelopment of brownfield land, especially in regions where the demand for residential and commercial property is high. In the UK, the government has started to compile a register of brownfield sites with the intention to identify potential areas suitable for redevelopment.

This research proposal focuses on the broader contexts of Ipswich and Lisbon, two cities that share common topographical and urban characteristics. Both cities have developed around the mouths of rivers thus owing their development largely to them. Also both cities have a significant industrial past and this is confirmed by their distinct industrial heritage. Yet both cities contain a large number of brownfield sites, which in both cases are not fully explored and evaluated accordingly.

Our research proposal considers brownfield sites as sites of pure potentiality where their state of emptiness or derelict structures relate back to their industrial past. Their contamination is equally informative as it functions as intangible heritage that links to past industrial processes.


State of the Art and objectives
Methodology

This proposal aims at identifying, mapping and analysing brownfield sites found in the broader regions of Lisbon and Ipswich.

The analysis will consider the tangible and intangible heritage found on these sites, and take it into consideration in the design proposal.

The design proposals will deal with architectural and urban interventions on various scales leading to the construction of 1:1 architectural artefacts.


Problematic and project development

Contribute of a cross dialogue between different modus operandis of design cultures


Evaluation and diffusion data

Evaluation based in grades scales. Projects will be published in both Suffolk University and ULHT magazines

Water Front Challenges

Project Title

Water Front Challenges


Research Line

Planning, Territory and Society


Resume
State of the Art and objectives

Objectives

Quality of Urban design and sustainable development in the interconnection of the boundary territory and its connection with the maritime elements.

Conservation and rehabilitation of existing patrimony in these areas. Architecture in waterfront corresponds to the urban design theme, public spaces, building typology, layout and, in particular, structure and general urban form.

As orientation, this study has two simultaneous and complementary aspects: to organize concepts related to the continuous transformation and consolidation of the urban fabric along water lines.

To study the relation of the evolution of the city from the historical and geographic point of view in this transition between water and the earth.

We intend to bring together instruments that make possible the construction of a theoretical support related to architecture and urban design projects in the reconfiguration of the boundary and its cross-linking to the urban environment.


Methodology

How?

Orientation of theses of Integrated Masters and PhD with thematic related to the research project. National and international workshops. Development of research projects.


Problematic and project development

What is happening?

The margins that determine the limits of urban spaces of large urban centers or small urban centers or intermediate spaces of connection present today a treatment little elaborated with a weak interconnection to the existing urban zone as well as to the maritime elements.

Climate change is another factor that is determining many of the changes in waterfront territories, their existence and their future.

The artificial territory that separates the two areas is in disarray which presents great challenges.


Evaluation and diffusion data

It is expected that the activity developed through these initiatives will generate and frame a systematic scientific project so as to be able to involve more teachers and students. The participation in the workshops publications and investigations as well as national and international competitions relate the team in multidisciplinary knowledge of fields.
