Periodic Report - PIANO (The innovation in the plan of the current floor: Zoning in blocks of flats for the middle class in the first half of the 20th century)

Project ID: 200636
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This is the periodic report for 'The innovation in the plan of the current floor: Zoning in blocks of flats for the middle class in the first half of the 20th century' (Piano). The project is about the 'interior' of interwar buildings of European architects and their forerunners. Facades and style have built the subject of numerous studies in history of architecture. The interior is first seen at the two-dimensional (2D) level of plans, but the grouping of functional units to zones is experienced in parcour as three-dimensional (3D) spatiality.

The report covers lessons learnt from the solution given to the problems of the society in the modern design of flats for coping with environmental problems today. The first environmental hazard considered are earthquakes. Another hazard is climate change: investigated was the so-called 'rediscovered green space', a solution to the dense urban areas with such buildings. The implication of citizens was considered for implementing these lessons, by means of participation.
