Innovative technologies for temporary architecture

Risultato della ricerca: Otherpeer review


Problem risen from temporariness and flexibility concepts of built concern, always constituted, all over technological advanced countries and throughout the whole history of scientific research, some of the most interesting aspects of technologies, industry and industrialization processes. Several project proposals about really light structures easily gatherable, transportable, that can be dismantled and reconverted, are proves of that such as their use in order to obtain flexible and functional living solutions. They are systems adaptable to different needs and fit to offer a concrete solution for the necessities related to the new ways of living. In fact temporary buildings that were thought during the past to face living emergencies, caused by natural calamities or men themselves, find today a wide range of applications such as living places for nomads, refugees, exiles, migrants, homelesses. These buildings can moreover be used as courtesy-houses during renovation, restoration, changeover and recovery interventions both of single handiworks and of urban scale or can be used as accommodation structures for wandering tourism, support systems to mass manifestations and so on.Today research is even more oriented to the discovery of innovative building technologies that concern the adoption of usages, materials and building elements with high performance characteristics that respond to eco-compatibilities priority needs. Under this point of view, temporary architectures can be transformed into structures able to guarantee the top level of comfort and eco-sustainability because they offer wide opportunities to the experimentation of new building materials and allow a more direct check of building processes such as a more immediate management of comfort control.The theme of temporary architectures has been, during this years, the object of the didactic experience inside the course of Environmental Design belonging to the Architecture Faculty in Palermo.The problem of environmental compatibility of the anthropic intervention has been afforded by students through a design approach of bioclimatic kind, preferring solutions economically fit both under the realization costs point of view, and management such as maintenance and re-employment, using materials and techniques fit in order to:-guarantee the living quality of the built area;-rationalize the consumes of natural resources especially the not renewable ones;-allow the adaptability of the handiwork to the changeable needs (in continue evolution) that characterize the contemporary society. This contribute wants to present a synthesis of the design proposals elaborated till today, in order to witness the experiences carried on such theme.
