Les Midis d’HABITER : Construction after demolition : the language of architecture and urban morphology

Publié le 30 avril 2019 Mis à jour le 2 septembre 2019

Human destruction or destruction by natural factors produces different impacts on the urban texture. After every disaster, construction and reconstruction are each time different and operate within the historical context requires an understanding of its morphological structure and architectural language. In this presentation, examples of construction after the catastrophe will be examined, leading to the identification of methodologies and guidelines that can be used in post-disaster construction.

Lors du prochain Midi d’HABITER, Ali Sokhanpardaz et Farzaneh Nahas Farmaniyeh (Ph.D students, University La Sapienza, Rome, Italy. Department of Architecture and Construction - DRACO) présentera une communication intitulée « Construction after Demolition: the Language of Architecture and Urban Morphology »

Grounding urbanization on the recognition of its morphology is one of the multiple ways to achieve sustainable urban development. Urban morphology determines the process of urban development and historical cities that have grown spontaneously, like living organisms, have unique patterns. We believe that after every disaster, construction and reconstruction are each time different and that rebuilding within the historical context requires to understand its morphological structure as well as its architectural language.

Human destruction or destruction by natural factors produces different impacts on the urban texture. The human demolition, which accounts for the highest percentages among the problems of historical textures, is one of the factors that are analysed. Destruction by war - which is one of the human factors in disaster – the slow destruction by citizens or the misconceptions of urban planners are among the factors that make it possible to consider construction issues in historical textures after destruction.

In this research, attempts have been made to investigate the reconstruction and the construction after destruction. Therefore, specific examples of construction after the catastrophe in cites will be examined, leading to the identification of methodologies and the formulation of guidelines that can be used in post-disaster construction.
