  8. 8. BIM-FOCUSED RECENT RESEARCH TRENDS & POLICIES BIM, as an acronym, is slowly moving from Information to Datum. In spite of appearances, it does not sound as a paradox, because it means that structured data will play a crucial role as a key driver and game changer agent. Such a strand is totally consistent with the AECO Industry’s digital evolution. Consequently, research programmes need to be interwoven with public policies. The transformational and disruptive changes do happen the moment when the Industry (of the Built Environment) is tremendously widening its own scope.

It is becoming clear however, that buildings will need to go beyond having little negative environmental impact in the future, to having net positive environmental benefits. Dr Pedersen Zari argues the concept of regenerative design and how cross-semination between ecology, biology and architecture could provide solutions to climatic, biodiversity, and human wellbeing challenges of the future and potentially alter the urban habitats that surround us into softer or more organic and symbiotic environments. Maibritt Pedersen Zari is a Senior Lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Her research investigates the role of emulating ecosystems in order to change design goals from sustainable to regenerative development. She works with the integration of complex social factors into sustainable architectural design. © David Baggs
  10. 10. RETHINKING URBAN CONSERVATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY: TOWARDS EQUITABLE OUTCOMES Urban conservation is at a crossroads. While traditional conser- vation practice emphasizes architectural values, contemporary approaches prioritize sociocultural and economic values, parti- cularly in low -income communities. Dr Cheong argues for a reevaluation of traditional, fabric-centered preservation appro- aches in changing historic neighborhoods via the integration of community-based planning tools such as community capital, affordable housing provisions and economic integration. Caroline Cheong is Assistant Professor at the University of Central Florida. Her research focuses on the relationship between urban heritage conservation and economic development, values-based conservation management, conservation economics and poverty reduction. 24 September, 15:00 (Monday) – Aula Consiglio ABC Building 14 – CAMPUS LEONARDO ABCPhD OPENTalks 2018 CAROLINE CHEONG © Susan Macdonald

The Historic city of Yazd deserves to be a world heritage because of its living earthen fabric as an architecture masterpiece based on earth and knowledge. The school emerged 30 years ago in this city aiming to discover and educate the knowledge hidden in the historic city. This lecture focuses on the process of school physical development in its valuable adjoining historic fabric and quality of interaction between the school and modern functional inquiries on one side and historic fabric limitation on the other side. Commencing with reusing a traditional house, the school developed through an organic process calmly and continuously until today which includes 21 traditional ones. This organic process in contrast with modern development projects consists of some issues that can be discussed and reviewed. Paying attention to capacity, capability, potential of the historic fabric interacted with a modern life requirement, here an architecture school, is core of the lecture.

His research interests are directed on decision theory, risk assessment, resilience, sustainability, global catastrophic risks, Bayesian probability theory. He has taken leadership in several international committees, including: the Joint Committee on Structural Safety (JCSS); the International Forum on Engineering Decision Making (IFED); convenor of ISO 2394 Principles of Reliability of Structures; the international Civil Engineering Reliability and Risk Association (CERRA), The World Economic Forum. He is member of the Global Expert Network on Risk and Resilience, the OECD High Level Risk Forum and selected member of the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences since 2012. On Resilience and Sustainability of Engineered Systems The pressures on the Earth system originating from human activities are manifold, tremendous and vividly apparent. Both at the political and academic agendas sustainability of societal developments has become a top priority. At the same time there is an increasing demand for impro- ved public welfare; calling for enhanced efficiency, reliability and resili- ence in all societal activities. It is evident that failure to achieve and maintain sustainable and resilient societal developments must be taken seriously at all levels of societal decision making. But how do we model resilience and sustainability such as to facilitate societal decision support? The present talk takes up this challenge and presents and discusses a framework for designing and managing resilience and sustainability of engineered systems.

He established a national/international profile in interdisciplinary health/built environment work through a steady output of publications that has crossed disciplinary divides. His work has been cited over 2500 times (as at Sept '17). Of particular note was the 2010 co- edited volume ‘Obesogenic Environments’ attracted contributions from Australia, USA, New Zealand and the Netherlands, establishing an international context for Tim's work. URBAN DESIGN HEALTH AND WELL-BEING There has been a long-standing understanding that the built envi- ronment has a direct inpact on people's health and well-being. In the 19th Century town planning developed hand in hand with public health to address disease epidemics. Today however con- temparary health and well-being problems are complex and multi- factorial and impact societies in unequal ways. To what extent, therefore, can built environment professionals contribute to supporting healthier lifestyles? In this lecture Tim Townshend explores emergent narratives as well as some of his own research to suggest while there is a role for urban design and planning more interdisciplinary cooperation is needed and attempts to 'build' our way to better health need en- gagement with social programmes.

  50. 50. ABCPhD OpenTalks 07 JOHN PENDLEBURY @polimi The Authorised Heritage Discourse (AHD) questions why material objects from the past should be considered valuable and extend this to what should be protected and to how that protection should take place; that is, what constitutes heritage and acceptable conservation practice. Using the AHD as a framing device, this lecture is focused upon the practice of conservation applied through the English planning system. It will reflect upon how, in tandem with the growth and extension of a system of conservation-planning, the protection of the historic environment has, over recent decades, become increasingly intertwined with other public policy objectives, especially with urban regeneration and economic development. Info:, The Authorised Heritage Discourse. Conservation, Planning and Urban Policy After the lecture, we shall present the book “Waterfronts Revisited. European Ports in a Historic and Global Perspective”, eds H. Porfyriou & M.

ABCPhD Open Talks 06 JOSEP-MARIA GARCIA FUENTES @Polimi Building memories and inventing space May 25th - room S.1.7, Building 3 - Campus Leonardo, 9h30-11h30 Josep-Maria Garcia Fuentes is researcher at the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape of Newcastle University and will talk with us about John Soane’s House and Museum in Lincoln’s Inn Fields. John Soane, Royal Gold Medal for architecture in 1776, was one of the most brilliant architects of his time. He had a thorough understanding of historical architectures, thanks to his travels in continental Europe, and a pioneering and visionary approach to architecture that let him become a constant reference for many twentieth-century architects in Europe and beyond. Our main questions: How a journey can provide the basis to the architect’s “formal education”? Does collective history need the architect’s imagination? And, what is the role of “nostalgia” in the never-ending reconstruction/invention of the past? Per informazioni: Cristina Pallini

  56. 56. The tour will be guided by Valeria Pracchi, who has directed the restoration works for the new museum. Meeting point, Ticket office of the museum, at 9:00 – Visit start at 9:15 Il nuovo spazio museale della Pietà Rondanini di Michelangelo si trova in una apposita Sala all’interno del complesso dei Musei Civici del Castello Sforzesco di Milano. La rinnovata destinazione museale voluta nel 2012 da Stefano Boeri, allora assessore alla Cultura della giunta Pisapia, ha suscitato notevole dibattito in città e su riviste e quotidiani non solo locali. Si è trattato infatti di modificare l’ormai storicizzato allestimento museale progettato dai BBPR alla fine degli anni Cinquanta e universalmente noto. Numerose sono dunque le questioni che sono state poste all’attenzione del pubblico interessato e che si intendono qui riprendere per ricostruire il dibattito intercorso in sedi importanti. Esse possono essere racchiuse entro tre ambiti tematici: • modifica dell’allestimento storico in rapporto alle (nuove / modificate / diverse) modalità di fruizione dell’opera; • scoperta e conoscenza di una nuova parte del Castello mai prima apprezzata; • destino dell’allestimento BBPR nella sala degli Scarlioni che ha ospitato la Pietà fino al 2015. Il giro proseguirà all’interno dei musei del Castello per visionare la Sala degli Scarlioni, dove era posta la Pietà, e per osservare e accennare ai restauri in corso alla pittura leonardesca della Sala delle Asse, se possibile.
