Conference paper

Abstract

The contribution focuses on the teaching experience conducted within a laboratory theme treated during the course of Representation, coordinated by me, from which subsequently have become an exhibition and a study day dedicated to the reading of an emblematic building for the city of Pescara. The objective was to investigate experimentally, using the representation tools, a connotative architecture of the city: the Aurum, an industrial building designed in 1938 by Giovanni Michelucci, today museum center and “factory of ideas”. The original project and its realization have constituted an opportunity to analyze in terms of graphic the architectural spaces, in relation to the place and to the city.
