2+2=7. If the project improves its parts

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


The International Open City Summer School of Piacenza 2015 involved the participants in the design of a spread museum of the agriculture between rural and urban areas, crossing the old town of Piacenza. The submitted project, processed in that workshop, is an occasion to call in question thedifferent scales of the design and some linked themes like the measure, the porosity and the permeability of the architecture and the town. Within the design of the museum, the experimentation of an “intermediate scale” reached us to the need of the architecture as connection of various parts, thus to the difference between mending and making something new. At the end, the challenge is that the sum of the portions merged will be not arithmetic; rather it will be a change that improves the territory, multiplying its accessibility and enjoyment (therefore in architecture 2+2=7).
