INTERVIEW

Prof. Ing. Enrico Spacone

Prof. Ing. Enrico Spacone

Director of the InGeo Department

An engineering school helps to grow an architecture school, and vice versa: this is a difficult message to get across.Another difficulty is to make professors understand that the university is changing, the Departments have many more responsibilities than before. .

I am proud of the excellent relationship between the Departments of Architecture, Engineering and Geology, because they are three disciplines that complement each other. I say that you can always improve,

I say this especially to you students, never be satisfied.

Civil engineering is a sector that is solid in countries like Italy and has always had good results even in the world of work.

It hasn't changed much since many years ago, there should be more
field application to understand, for example, how concrete is made.

Our students have a good background in the construction field. The degree course, born as a rib of architecture, does not have all the skills that a civil engineering course should have, but theoretical lessons could be offered on topics that we cannot currently teach, such as plumbing.

One thing I would like to have is a space where students can work. Unfortunately, for now we must try to make the most of the resources we have because, with the funding being reduced, I find it difficult to build new structures.

Nerves! Certainly, he is the first; I would like to have great designers who also know how to do research. I think that a degree course must have a solid theoretical-practical basis, so that it must be able to count on engineers who deal with basic mechanics and good designers.

Relations at the moment are very good, but between Italian and foreign teachers. The challenge is to extend the relationship to students.

You must be hungry for knowledge, don't look at the vote. If you do things seriously, what you learn anyway you can sell on the market.
Today, someone who has traveled a lot tells you, it becomes very difficult to find work behind the house as an architect or as an engineer. But the work is there, you just have to go and look for it.

Prof. Arch. Carlo Pozzi

Director of the Department of Architecture

 

The biggest difficulty is the management of the department assembly; teachers take decisions and then later question them again, if on the one hand this is a democratic attitude, on the other it becomes painful because there is a tendency not to materialize, not to

have a constant line of thought.

An attitude that I defend is the one that professors have towards teaching and students, it seems to me that it works a lot.

It is perfectly correct to say “nowadays”, in the sense that I was trained in an era in which architecture was studied in many books. The theory and practice must run on two parallel tracks, it is important to build a background that allows you to make choices, motivating them, without relying too much on the imagination. The Ud'A, compared to the recent past, must make strong contributions to "rejuvenate" this school through art, cinema, photography, perhaps even theater. Soon there will be some news on this side.

Our graduates have a good level to face the world of work. Pescara is mistakenly seen as a small "New Work of architects", in some ways I would like to consider it as such, but with respect to the real possibilities of employment, an imbalance is created between expectations and reality. It therefore seems to me that the "provocation" from abroad can be an alternative, but to go, get to know, experience and take home.

I tried to open spaces for dialogue with the University of Chieti, but this is not enough, adequate structures are needed. One of the elements we are focusing on is the creation of a media library, a space that is not underground and that has an architectural relevance that houses a large number of materials useful to students.

I would like to invite all the professors who have taught here, such as Aldo Aymonino, Cristina Bianchetti, Arturo Lanzani, Paolo Desideri, and others. It is important to be able to dialogue with the past in a non-nostalgic way.

The international relations we currently have are mainly relations between teachers and foreign universities. The challenge lies in trying to set up important research, in which students and PhD students can be involved.

I think studying architecture is a beautiful thing!

I started living when I enrolled in this faculty. The dynamics of teamwork teach us how to work together and grow together, without leaving room for wearying contrasts that lead nowhere.
Remember: the university is yours! As a student, you can expect more.

How is your university organization evaluated and what are you proud of?

How is architecture / engineering taught today?

What do you think the level of our graduates is and on what basis do you rate it?

How, as director, do you think you can make up for the Department's lack of facilities?

Today, which architects / engineers would you like to invite to your school?

What relations currently exist between Ud'A and foreign universities?

In conclusion he has the possibility to leave a message for his students.

Since you were appointed Department Director, what has been the biggest difficulty you have encountered?

Prof. Arch. Carlo Pozzi

Manager of Architecture Department

 

The biggest difficulty is managing the department's assembly; the teachers take decisions and later put them back into discussion, on the one hand, this is a democratic attitude, on the other hand, it becomes painful because it tends not to become concrete, not to have a constant way of thinking.

An attitude that I defend is the one that teachers have towards teaching and students and it seems to me it works properly.

It is absolutely right saying "nowadays", in the sense that I have formed at a time when architecture was studied from many books. The theory and the practice have to run along two parallel paths, it is important to build a background that allows you to make choices and to motivate them, without relying too much on the imagination. L'Ud'A, compared to the recent past, must give strong contributions to "modernize" this institution through art, film, photography, perhaps even theater. There will soon be some news on this side.

Our graduates have a good level to face the working field. Pescara is mistakenly seen as the small “New York of the architects”, in some ways I would like to consider it so, but compared to the actual opportunity of employment, it is created an imbalance between expectations and reality. Therefore, it seems to me that the “provocation” from abroad can be an alternative, but for going ..

I tried to open spaces for dialogue with the University of Chieti, but this is not enough, it takes appropriate facilities. One of the elements on which we are aiming for is the construction of a media center, a space that is not underground and has an architectural significance that embraces a large number of materials useful to students.

I would like to invite all the teachers who have taught here, like Aldo Aymonino, Cristina Biachetti, Arturo Lanzani, Paolo Desideri, and others It is important to manage to communicate with the past in a non-nostalgic manner.

The international relations that we currently have are especially relations between teachers and foreign universities. The challenge is to try to put together important research, where students and doctoral students may be involved.

I believe that studying architecture is a wonderful thing! I have begun to live when I enrolled at this faculty. The dynamics of teamwork teach you how to work and grow together, leaving no room for exhausting conflicts which lead nowhere. As students you can take out more.

To conclude, you have the possibility to leave a message for your students.

What is the relationship between Ud'A and foreign universities in the present?

Today, which architects would you like to invite to your school?

In what way, as manager, do you think you can compensate for the lack of structures in the department?

What do you consider to be the level of our graduates and what is the assessment based on?

How is taught architecture / engineering nowadays?

How do you evaluate the university organization and what makes you be proud of?

Which is the biggest difficulty encountered since you were nominated manager of the department?

An engineering school helps developing an architecture school, and vice versa: this is a difficult message to transmit. Another difficulty is to make the teachers understand that the university is changing, the departments have many more responsibilities now than before.

Our students have an excellent training with regard to the construction field. The course of degree, emerging as a branch of architecture, does not have all the competences that should have a civil engineering course, but it could offer some theoretical lectures on topics that currently we are unable to teach, such as hydraulics.

One thing I would like to have is a space where students could work. Unfortunately, for now we must try to make the most of the resources we have, because, with the funds that are being reduced, I see it difficult to build new structures.

At this moment, the relations are very good, but only between Italian and foreign teachers. The challenge is to broaden the relations to students.

You must be hungry for knowledge, do not look at the grade. If do the things seriously, you will manage to sell on the market what you learn. Today, tells you one that has traveled a lot, it becomes very difficult to find work around home as an architect or engineer. you just have to look for it.
