A study of towers : - An inventory, seven transformations.  (English)
Abstract [sv]

Vårt examensarbete är ett konstnärligt forskningsprojekt som omfattar en inventering på över hundra torn från det medeltida Bologna samt en studie i hur torn som typologi förändras och transformeras beroende på kontext. Avsikten med vår studie är att skapa djupare förståelse för de historiska tornen i Bologna samt diskutera frågan om typologi som designmetod. Genom vårt historiska researcharbete besvarar vi frågor om varför tornen byggdes och varför de revs, hur de såg ut samt hur många de var. I diskussionen belyser vi frågan om torn som symbol och landmärke samt torns värde för stadsbilden som helhet under historiens gång. Projektet undersöker även torn som artefakt, där vi ser typologi som en metod för design. Vi tar stöd från Aldo Rossis Teatro del Mondo och utvecklar idén om ett klassiskt torn som tänjer sina egna gränser, omvandlas och anpassas för att bli specifikt i olika sammanhang i den moderna staden. Alla tornomvandlingar som gör är spekulativa och skall förstås som tydligt avläsbara reaktioner på platsens karaktär. På så sätt ämnar vi inte lösa specifika problem utan studera ett teorietiskt problem genom att problematisera, agera och analysera.

Abstract [en]

Our thesis is a research based project that includes an inventory of over one hundred towers of medieval Bologna and a study in the tower typology, how it change and transforms depending on the context. The purpose of our study is to create a deeper understanding of the historical towers of Bologna and discuss the issue of typology as a method for design. Through our historical research, we answer questions about why the towers were built, why they disappeared, what they looked like and how many they were. In the discussion, we highlight the issue of tower as a symbol and landmark and tractor value to the townscape as a whole throughout history. The project also examines the towers as an artifact, which we see typology as a method for design. We take support from Aldo Rossi's ideas realized in Teatro del Mondo and develop the idea of a classic tower that pushes its own boundaries, transforms and adapts to become specific in different contexts in the modern city. All tower transformations we are suggesting are speculative and should be understood as reactions of their specific environment. We do not intent to solve a specific problem but study a theoretical problem by questioning, acting and analyzing.
