ARS Lab is established as a multidisciplinary research group that investigates the topic of Territorial Fragility on a broad spectrum. The laboratory develops multiple activities by applying a research line, elaborated in the context of the PRIN 2012 “Re-cycle Italy”, classified into two main variables: scale (a) and context (b).
ARS Lab, therefore, reflects on the questions of finalizing effective design strategies to promote reuse and regeneration of settlement assets subject to disposal and abandonment processes, which are based on (a) different scales of artefacts, fabrics, networks; (b) diversity of urban, suburban, rural contexts. In this perspective, the research aimed to investigate some specific case studies about the concept of “fragility”, which are assumed as a guiding role,
In particular, the objects of the ongoing research are:
regions hit by natural disasters (e.g. the crater’s areas created by seismic events during the last 50 years in the Italian territory;
prisons (e.g. San Vittore, Opera and Bollate jails);
the heritage settlements in the central-southern Italian Apennines and the underused sites in Lombardy region (e.g. historical heritage areas and educational compound);
The international cultural heritage: e.g. the historical sites in India (Gujarat) and inland areas of China;
borderlands, seacoasts and inland waters with climate change effects (e.g. Tierra del Fuego – Chile, Etang de Beurre – Provence, France, Mantua lake);
Open Data for Cultural Heritage for creating sharing knowledge, computer data and mapping resources in peripheral geographic areas;
Climate Change as an opportunity for urban and territorial regeneration of fragile contexts through suitable design techniques;
neighbourhoods passed through processes of hiding or elimination (e.g. Jewish Ghetto in Warsaw).
In this perspective, the research program contributes to the development and consolidation of the DASTU Department of Excellence project through:
Qualitative and quantitative analysis methods, for reading, interpreting and understanding the territorial paradigms about social and cultural fragility in specific scale and context;
Measurement, mapping and representation techniques for observing phenomena. Integration between traditional urban analysis methods, new information sources and new communication tools (including big and open data);
Multiscale and multidisciplinary design tools aimed to improve the architectural, urban and environmental resources, in particular in critical context and degenerative processes of architectural structures and environmental and cultural systems.
Specifically, ARS lab develops and promotes national and international partnerships, building networking with research centres which common sharing knowledge about territorial fragility topics.
