Barletta: Sea, Centre and Periphery
Samir Younés, Ettore Maria Mazzola
Gangemi, 2005 - Architecture - 95 pages
Barletta: Sea, Center and Periphery details the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture's studio to produce designs for key areas in Barletta. The creation of designs for the city provided the opportunity to deal with two delicate town-planning issues: first, how to operate within a historical center; and second, how to upgrade a dismantled industrial area, subject to restrictions imposed by the Service of Artistic and Architectural Heritage. The goal was to integrate the new with the old, by working to rehabilitate the surroundings totally, avoiding piecemeal fixes unresponsive to the total urban fabric.
We appreciate the remarkable next to the mundane; the coherent as well as the irregular; the beauty of proportional relationships; grandeur and moderation; opulence and austerity; solidity, firmness and also delicateness; and especially the suitability of buildings to the very place from which these buildings emerge. The successful combinations of these qualities occasionally converge to make a city or a quarter of historic importance.
