Description of the initiative

The initiative is framed within the Erasmus+ project REcube: REthink, REvive, REuse - Transmitting the knowledge for the green regeneration of the European Concrete Heritage, which aims at teaching a sustainable, integrated and holistic approach to the conservation and renovation of Modern Concrete European Architectural Heritage. The target is represented by students coming from 11 different Architecture and Engineering Master's programmes across Europe.

Through the Frontier+REgenerate Workshops and the MOOC+Meet the Makers, the REcube learning programme delivers the technical knowledge and the specific skills needed for the green and safe management and protection of Modern concrete heritage, contributing to the development and expansion of future professional competences.

REcube intends to expose the students (3 per each partner University) to a cross-disciplinary education in Modern Heritage Preservation with focus on research, innovation, durability and preservation. The learning and training activities of the Frontier and REgenerate Workshops will last 5 days each, the Frontier being online and the REgenerate being in presence. To implement learning activities in a greener way and sustain an eco-friendly approach, the Frontier Workshop will be an online intensive course on cutting edge topics as pathologies and physics of reinforced concrete buildings. The aim is to provide participating students with a complete overview, applying a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical learning. It will be subdivided into lectures and an in-depth analysis of case studies belonging to Pier Luigi Nervi's architectural heritage.

Outcomes will be then integrated in the learning activities of the following REgenerate Workshop, where students will implement the knowledge acquired in the Frontier. Consequently, the REgenerate Workshops will centre on performing the multifaceted assessment and analysis of a concrete architecture by Pier Luigi Nervi, to be preserved and repurposed. Always taking place in Lecco on the PoliMI campus, the REgenerate workshop will be an intensive face-to-face programme based on a case study. Learners will evaluate and interpret the different data acquired on the chosen structure and present the problems to be solved, as well as the preparatory analysis to be performed before the renovation design. A visit to the project site is also planned, the costs of which will be borne by the REcube project.
