Urban reactions from within

Endogenesis is an experiment, a provocation, a necessity, a passion.
Endogenesis is the reflection of the students of the IAMM Laboratory, all undergraduates in Architecture at the “Federico II” University of Naples. Wondering what the role of architecture is in the construction of the city, they open this reflection to comparison with other ideas.
The answers come from the first experiment: Endogenesis 1.0.
The mission is the recovery of six neglected areas in the unscrupulous urban evolutionary process, in the town of Angri (SA), and the awareness of the public in seeing these spaces as resources and not as waste or resulting places.
Students from various Italian universities sent their proposals to participate in the free discussion on the urban development of the areas through experimental proposals of free participatory planning, aimed at the reconquest of abandoned urban spaces.
Their adhesion and their projects, from design to architecture, represented a concrete response to the reappropriation of the city fabric that the laboratory has promoted.
Soon Endogenesis 2.0!

Urban reactions from within

Endogenesis is an experiment, a provocation, a necessity, a passion.Endogenesis is the reflection of the students of the Laboratory IAMM, all graduates in Architecture at the University "Federico II" of Naples.Wondering what is the role of architecture in the building of the city, these reflections start a confrontation with other ideas. The answers come right from the first experiment: Andogenesi 1.0 The mission is to recover six neglected areas in unscrupulous urban evolution process, near the city Angri (SA), and to raise public awareness in seeing these spaces as a resource and not as a waste or a residual space.Students from different Italian universities have sent their proposals to participate in the open discussion on the development of urban areas using experimental proposals of free shared planning, aimed to reconquer the abandoned urban spaces.Their membership and their projects, from design to architecture, represented a practical response to the reapproach to the urban tiss ue promoted by the workshop.To a soon Endogenesis 2.0!

Looks beyond the borders

“Beyond the borders, beyond the gain, beyond the fame”. This could be a concise and direct summary of the work of “borderless” associations, from doctors to architects, from engineers to photographers. A reality that sees the commitment of many people, who with passion and effort make themselves available to those who are less well-off, in order to regulate the processes of change. Among these, ISF (Engineering Without Borders) of the Trento section and, specifically, the students who work alongside researchers and external operators.
Born in the university, in the engineering degree course, it currently has about forty members despite its recent foundation.
ISF is active with a series of operations in several countries such as Mozambique, Peru, Madagascar and Tanzania, each of which always represents a new challenge with common perspectives: water, energy, software, open source technologies, without neglecting fundamental sociological and ethical aspects.
In addition to direct work, the focus is on various issues and meetings aimed at self-training to improve the skills of the members who will then operate beyond the borders.

Look Across the Border

A reality that sees the commitment of many people who put passion and effort at the disposal of those less fortunate, in order to adjust the processes of change. Among them, EWB (Engineers Without Borders) from the section of Trento and, especially the students who help scientists and outside operators.Founded in the university, during the engineering degree, it can count at present on about forty members, in spite of its recent foundation.EWB is active with a number of operations in more countries, such as Mozambique, Peru, Madagascar and Tanzania, each of which always represents a new challenge from the prospects of water, energy, software, open source technologies, without neglecting the sociological and ethical fundamental aspects. In addition to the direct work, it is focused on different issues and meetings for self-training to improve the skills of the members who will later operate across borders.

Alice Im Wunderland

"Absurdity? Of course Oreste! If I had a world the way I like it, everything would be absurd there! ”. It's the senseless Wonderland of Alice's mind where nothing is impossible. And if the relationship with spaces were continually and personally re-created, how does Alice do on her journey to Wonderland? An Estonian girl, a Venezuelan and two German boys have tried, competing with a project of participatory architecture with the aim of producing new visions in the Alice Salomon Platz in Berlin. The integrated project between two universities, BTU Cottbus and ASH Berlin, proposed listening to the place and what is hidden from the gaze of most. Thanks to the contribution of two students of Pedagogy and Social Work we tried to stimulate the inhabitants to close their eyes, to imagine forgetting the faded and unimaginative reality of adults. What can an image, a sound evoke?
The seminar accompanied the project through contamination of the place with small installations. A void can become space only if detected by the senses, opening up infinite paths to the imagination.
- "Which path should I take?"
- “It depends on where you want to go”.

Alice Im Wunderland

Absurdity? Of course Orestes! If I had a world the way I like it, everything would be absurd. "It is the Wonderland of Alice's mind, without rationality, where nothing is impossible. And what if the relations with the spaces were constantly and personally re-created as did Alice in her journey to Wonderland? An Estonian girl, a Venezuelan and two German guys have tried, by competing with a project of participatory architecture to produce new visions in the Alice Salomon Platz in Berlin.

What can evoke an image, a dream? The seminar accompanied the project influencing the place with small installations. A void can become a space only through the senses, thes e opening infinite possibilities to the imagination.- "Which way should I take?" - "It depends on where you want to go."

Dual Degree Program

To date, methods for non-linear finite element analyzes are becoming more and more widespread in the professional world as they are a valid aid in the interpretation of the static and dynamic behavior of structures, giving hope for the engineering of the future.

This is exactly what Massimo Petracca takes care of.
With a thesis that explores the technical aspect of structural models developed using finite element software, he graduated with full marks in Architecture at the University of Pescara; after having won the PhD scholarship in Pescara, he begins a project on the subject of thesis in collaboration with the University of Barcelona, undertaking an international training course that will allow the student to achieve a double degree with the Dual Degree Program.
Specifically, the project concerns the analysis of masonry structures subjected to seismic action, fundamental in the technical standards concerning Limit States, to evaluate their safety and be able to evaluate the best design choices.
An example of how architecture and engineering can overcome seemingly impassable walls by confronting distant realities.

Dual Degree Program

Today, the methods for nonlinear finite element analysis are becoming increasingly prevalent in the professional world because they are a valuable aid in interpreting the static and dynamic behavior of structures, making us putting our hope in the engineering of the future. This is precisely what Petracca Massimo deals with.With a thesis that explores the technical side of the structural models developed using finite element software, he graduated with honors in Architecture at the University of Pescara, won a doctorand scholarships in Pescara, started his thesis project in collaboration with the University of Barcelona, undertaking a training program that will allow international students to achieve a double title with the Dual Degree Program. Specifically, the project covers the analysis of masonry structures submitted to seismic action, the basic technical rules relating to the Limit States, to assess its safety and to sift the best design choices.
