The lessons of the course will be referred to emerging themes of the project and are collected in different teaching materials that form a background cultural framework on the city's project.
These materials will be provided through digital tools. Students will be given assistance both for the interpretation of the contents of the teaching materials in relation to the project theme, and for the deepening of the bibliography.
During the block, some conceptual elements will be identified that allow to face, through the support of different bibliographic materials, relevant themes that characterize urban life, such as the concept of
identity, public space, centrality, on board, the city as a theme park, the relationship with history, the relationship between nature and artifice, between city and countryside, between mobility and public space. The understanding of the concepts will be made possible by the application to the local context, in particular to the spatial domains that are also the areas of application of the concepts.
The course intends to start a reflection on the territorial future for the coastal area of eastern Gallura. This territory is characterized by the phenomenon of hydrogeological risk, by problems interfacing the urban dimension, the infrastructural dimension and the environmental dimension, as well as by an advanced process of privatization of the coastal strip and, in this sense, of the public space. The educational activities are focused in particular on the city of Olbia, the driving force of the North Sardinia territory.
Oriental, a "airport" city focused on the exchange for the presence of important infrastructures related to maritime and air transport, and to the settlement transformations generated by coastal tourism development.
As illustrated in the lectures and in the workshop, the project requires specific attention to the consistency with the expectations and aspirations of local companies, and to the recognition of the importance of the project as a cooperative action, which unfolds both through the exploration of aspirations of the inhabitants, both through their involvement; this requires that the project be built not in a resolutive way, but as a process that opens up different possibilities.
