On the 6th of June at Opificio Golinelli in Bologna SOS hosted #SosOpen 7 a lecture open to the community and professionals. The guest lecturer was Professor Paolo Tombesi, who joined the University of Melbourne in 1997 and appointed to the Chair in Construction in 2009. He has held visiting positions at the University of Reading (United Kingdom), Harvard University, University of Yale and University of Minnesota (United States), and the Ecole Polytechnique Federale in Lausanne – EPFL (Switzerland). Paolo Tombesi discussed the impact of architecture on building processes.
Last week the SOS – School group Andrea, Claudia, Laura B., Laura M. and Ugo participated in the Lyon Architecture Biennale. SOS students in collaboration with MIUR Social – The Italian Ministry of Education of the University and Research – organized a workshop titled “WISE – Workshop for Innovative School and Education”. The aim is to focus on the importance of architecture in the educational context.
In the past days SOS – Camerino Team, Alberto, Elena, Laura Z., Kseniya, Maria e Martina, were involved in a three days’ workshop, focused on the design of a Temporary Shelter for Camerino Community in collaboration with Arcò Architecture and Cooperation professionals – Arch. Alessio Battistella e Arch. Luca Trabattoni. The aim was to develop a concept design for a prototype structure for a temporary retail area in the dedicated area of S. Paolo, addressing the need for low-cost, self-built structures for the temporary use in the earthquake area. The design is tested in Camerino, with locally sourced and built, demountable, self-constructed structures.
