Résumé

Superstudio offre une opportunité de travail sur un projet multidisciplinaire très riche en données. Les participants apprendront comment relier les connaissances spécialisées à un contexte particulier, et comment intégrer de nombreuses dimensions techniques dans un ensemble complexe.

Contenu

Rapa Nui, the remote legendary island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, home to the Moai sculptures and also known as Easter Island, provides the physical context for this exercise, which is being developed in accordance with a three-year study program, from 2018 to 2020, tackling different scales of intervention: systemic / policy planning (2018); environmental / typological definition (2019); infrastructural / building design (2020). As per plan, Superstudio 2018 (System Rapa Nui) carried out an eco-systemic analysis of the island, whcih generated multiple visions for a regional policy, capable to consider and integrate all the issues affecting Rapa Nui's future sustenance at macro level. This year, with Space Rapa Nui, the focus will be on the typological definition of environmental building models and the selection of technologies that can facilitate the performance imagined at territorial level by such regional development proposals.

Superstudio will run over two full days of instruction and investigation a week. it will comprise a four week-long series of lectures dealing with specific technological topics and two periods of student-led studio-based activities. The semester is divided into four parts: 1) Normalization and translation of the information produced by System Rapa Nui in 2018 (3 weeks); 2) Lecture cycle addressing relevant environmental topics and technological challenges for the building fabric in the island (4 weeks); 3) Typological investigation of relevant building programs integrating the findings of the two previous phases (5 weeks); 4) Final debate over the results of the activity (1 week). A selected group of students will travel to Rapa Nui in March 2020 to present and discuss with island representativesthe details of the work carried out in Lausanne.
