Abstract (in English)

For many years our school of architecture has offered a summer course in Italy including a design studio for students of architecture, planning , and landscape architecture. The focus of the studies has been preservation in historic centers and the reuse of abandoned sites. Each year a different Italian city has hosted the design studio and set a theme for the project, dealing not only with reuse of historic buildings, but also with abandoned industrial sites, and reconstructions of parts of the historic city. The question of conservation of historic centers has in this way been approached as an architectural problem, addressing new development in addition to conservation of the existing. Examples of these projects are the work on the Papigno area for the city of Terni, and on the Canapina area within the historic walls of Perugia.
