Critical review of studies on the representation of architecture and use of the image in science and art

The end of architectural drawings? Representation and construction in the 20th and the 21st century

Organizzatori: Bibliotheca Hertziana, Max–Planck–Institut für Kunstgeschichte. Tatjana Bartsch, Johannes Röll, Anne Scheinhardt, Vitale Zanchettin

Rome, November 21 – 23, 2018


Villino Stroganoff, Via Gregoriana 22


In the last decades, the far-reaching diffusion of electronic data processing instruments seems to have supplanted traditional methods of manual drawing and three-dimensional architectural model making. The capturing, planning and visualization of objects and buildings appears to be positively dominated by digital technologies and semi-automatic production methods, ranging from parametric and algorithmic modelling systems and digital recording tools to interactive animations and automatic 2D and 3D printing. In view of these extensive and pervasive technological developments which appear to highlight an epochal and seemingly irreversible change, the question arises as to whether these new means of representation also reveal an inherent change in the forms of knowledge or, rather, if they do not simply adopt manual and conceptual conventions derived from the architectural drawing tradition. Notably, in the context of construction sites, the communication between the executing and the planning party continues to be linked to the graphical projection, following practices that have been essentially unchanged for centuries.

Architetto, si è laureata nel 2000 presso l’Università IUAV di Venezia, dove nel 2005 ha conseguito anche il titolo di dottore di ricerca in storia dell’architettura e dell’urbanistica. Dal 2010 è ricercatore t.d. presso l’Università degli Studi di Trento (DICAM).
Tra le sue principali pubblicazioni si segnalano i contributi nel catalogo dell’esposizione organizzata dal Centre Pompidou di Parigi e la monografia su Robert Mallet-Stevens (2005), gli scritti contenuti nel catalogo dell’esposizione dedicata a Adolf Loos dall’Istituto Austriaco di Roma (2006), e la monografia sul Palazzo Postale costruito ad Alessandria dall’architetto Franco Petrucci durante il periodo fascista (2012). Recentemente ha partecipato a diversi convegni internazionali, affrontando temi quali l’architettura dei padiglioni espositivi, i monumenti celebrativi eretti nelle terre di confine durante il fascismo e le opere per il turismo realizzate in Trentino nel corso del Novecento.
