CORDOBA. OPPOSITE TRACES
During the autumn semester we will work in Córdoba, Spain. The student will have to deal with its structure, understanding the pre-existing traces and answering to them with a new order. The site is located in an urban void in the centre city.
We will begin from two urban fragments: the first one, corresponding to The Great Mosque; the second one, with the same dimension than the first, referring to a piece of the dense urban structure of the old city. The students will start working with both case studies: on the one hand, they will study the plan of The Mosque, where the systematization of a model, extended during the history, creates an abstract urban landscape; on the other hand, they will face a structure, where the typology of patios followed by the narrow streets generate a more complex urban landscape.
