LabCity Architecture: Research-Action Activities

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The LabCity Architecture is a multidisciplinary research group investigates the phenomena of city transformation through the architectural design, relating the project to current thinking on sustainable cities and to processes for transformation and development of infrastructure, city heritage and public space. The group reinforces the strong connection between research and innovation through constant experimentation processes to broaden the imagination of the architectural scene. The research approach can benefit from solid relations with several European Universities and Cultural Institutions. The 2021 edition of the winter school chose to emphasize the recognition of heterogeneity over homogeneity, focusing on the balance between man, nature and architecture. With this aim in mind, the LabCity Architecture group has identified the natural site of the waterfalls and cave of San Nicola in the Bolognetta valley, in line with the common research interests about the development and regeneration of rural small towns. Furthermore, the winter school suggested a thematic reflection on the places of cinema, underlining the impact of the evocative power of the representative arts on communities and places.
