co+laboradović two seminars at co+labo: Leonardo Chiesi on Double Space of Architecture
On 9 and 12 December Professor Leonardo Chiesi, an urban sociologist from the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Florence, conducted two seminars with co+labo research students, giving a great expert contribution to our efforts for better understanding of architectural and urban spaces and activities as manifestations of urban social condition.
The key points of Leonardo's book Double Space of Architecture provided fruitful basis for rich discussion of co+labo undergraduate, Masters and PhD Theses in progress. On both days, discussions had to be continued in more informal chats, over the coffee at La Poire. This visit ads to the solid basis of collaboration between Keio and UniFi in the fields of architecture and urbanism, which started with contribution of Professor Raffaele Paloscia and his team to our major reserach project Measuring the non-Measurable (2011-14).
