Dolomiti Contemporanee: cogeneration of cultural corrugation

Italian Pavilion “Resilient Communities” Venice’s Arsenale , 17. Venice Architecture Biennale

Dolomiti Contemporanee has been operating since 2011, recovering and restarting great, abandoned or troubled sites, which represent unexhausted resources for the territory. Dormant, neglected assets, ones that must be reconsidered, both in identity and usage: should we wish to call ourselves truly attentive custodians and capable interpreters of our landscapes.
If we understand the landscape as people’s gymnasium, it cannot be anything but a construction site, then, a space for transformation.
Many hardworking, capable, and responsible people come populate these unearthed factories, transforming them into experimental hubs of re-innovative and regenerative productivity; establishing relationships and networks that are vast, open, and collaborative.
In Dolomiti Care we present their visions and practices.
The mountain isn’t eternal. It is inhabited. A kind of architecture. We are therefore responsible for its effective edification: social, cultural and economic. The mountain must become a factory. Hit stone with the mallet.

Panelists (starting from 3 PM):

Alessandro Melis, curator of the Italian Pavilion “Resilient Communities”
Gianluca D’Incà Levis, curator of Dolomiti Contemporanee – theme: corrugation
Paolo Faccio, professor of restoration at Venice‘s IUAV , Mattia Menardi, architect – theme: the Zuel Ski Jump (Cortina d’Ampezzo)

Dolomiti Contemporanee: cogenerazione del corrugamento culturale

Padiglione Italia “Comunità Resilienti” Arsenale di Venezia, 17. Biennale di Architettura di Venezia

Dolomiti Contemporanee opera dal 2011, recuperando e riavviando grandi siti abbandonati o problematici, che costituiscono risorse inesauste per il territorio. Beni sopiti, trascurati, che è necessario ripensare, nell’identità e nell’uso: qualora si voglia dirsi davvero attenti custodi e interpreti capaci dei propri paesaggi.
Se intendiamo il paesaggio come una palestra dell’uomo, esso non potrà che essere un cantiere, uno spazio della trasformazione.
Molti uomini alacri, capaci, responsabili, vengono a popolare queste fabbriche riesumate, trasformandole in cantieri sperimentali di una produttività rinnovativa, rigenerativa; fondando relazioni e reti vaste, aperte, collaborative.
In Dolomiti Care presentiamo le loro visioni e pratiche.
La montagna non è eterna. Essa è abitata. Un’architettura. Noi siamo dunque responsabili della sua effettiva edificazione: sociale, culturale, economica. La montagna deve diventare una fabbrica. Battere la pietra sul maglio.

The Twocalls Contest entered its second phase. Lots of projects have been submitted in the latest days of the first phase, kept the Evaluation Committee busy longer than expected.
The Jury will nominate the winners in June.

Here a video, realized with the event Vajont 2015 – Progetti, held on 2 May in Casso, in which some members of the Jury, participants, inhabitants of the Vajont area, intertwine their opinions and ideas on the meaning of Twocalls regarding the history of Vajont and of its territory.

On April the 30th the first phase of the International Artistic Contest Two Calls for Vajont, launched in June 2014 by Dolomiti Contemporanee drew to a close.
The Contest was conceived as an open platform of reflection on the territory of the Vajont and on its terrible history (October the 9th 1963), and as an opportunity to rethink, through the production of a series of renovating images, the landscape and some of the main symbols of that history today, transforming them from still objects-memories of the tragedy into active and shared “construction sites” of the mind and spirit.
