Khizra Arfan Ul Bari

My name is Khizra Arfan Ul Bari, graduate student of 2022 Architecture and design
department, Ozyegin university, Istanbul.
In my pursuit of creative endeavours and keen interest in conservation of heritage, I
found this summer school as a unique opportunity to broaden my vision.
I have served as an assistant guide in heritage walk in old town Karachi, along with that
I am interested in proposing solutions by conceptualising how a built environment can
be conducted to adapt. So that it results in designing a structure keeping in mind the
future changes according to the change in occupations needs.
I believe in saving energy and resources starting from a personal level and spreading it
in the community. I started collecting raw materials and organic wastes to make handmade
paper on a personal level and then with the help of volunteers we held a couple
of workshops in our community where we spread awareness and taught the process of
handmade paper making to groups of people. This made me realise that such little
acts do have an impact no matter how big or small it.
Looking forward to learn from this summer schoool, in the hope that togetheer we will
make a noticeable change in the society.

Jessica Comino

Pleased to be introducing myself to the After the Damages International Summer School, my name is Jessica Comino and I am an Italian urban planner recently graduated in the Master Degree course in Planning for the Global Urban Agenda at the Polytechnic of Turin.
Passionate about urban studies and environmental sciences, I had the chance grow these interests throughout a Bachelor in Planning for the City, Territory and Landscape at the University of Florence, where I learnt the basics of ecology, geology, the spatial planning tools, legislation and backgrounds of the Italian territorial context and eventually, conclude my first academic path with an exchange semester at the UNITEC Institute of Technology of Auckland in New Zealand, where I developed my research thesis concerning the evolution of Māori settlements within the contemporary city. This incredible experience enlarged my perspective to a point I was willing to know more about international culture and approaches to spatial planning. Additionally, the remote location of the country and its profound relation with nature along with response and preparedness to natural disasters, introduced me to these themes and fascinated me enormously. The combination of these two factors made me discover the Master Degree course in Planning for the Global Urban Agenda focusing on the comprehension and achievement of the sustainable development goals from the United Nations throughout the discipline of spatial planning. There I learnt the application of geomatics and remote sensing techniques into spatial planning and Earth observation throughout my academic studies, that I further developed joining the Disaster and Recovery Team (Team DIRECT) activities, particularly dealing with hazardous events and territorial assessment. Particularly, I took part to the DIRECT’s mission in the municipality of Elva, as regards the monitoring and assessment of the main infrastructural connection between the Elva Valley and the Maira Valley affected by a landslide in 2019, using laser scanning techniques and drones for data acquisition and 3D modelling. Eventually, also my master research thesis concerned emergency assessment, studying the occurrence of Tropical Cyclone Idai over the coast of Mozambique in 2019 and the happening of another Tropical event, Eloise, in 2021. The study consisted in the collection of multi-source and multi-formats data within a new geodatabase, that has been created in order to develop potential future scenarios, support existing cartography and strategic decision making, along with provide a reliable and open source archive of tropical events in the area so to foster preparedness and enhance territorial comprehension.
The After the Damages International Summer School means to me a unique opportunity to increase my competences, exchange knowledge with academics and professionals from a rich variety of organizations and add a further piece to the puzzle of the personal and professional being I am willing to become.

Reynaldo Esperanza

Solidea Faedo

I’m Solidea Faedo, I’m a civil engineer and I graduated at the University of Padova in 2002 with a thesis entitled ``Analysis of the seismic vulnerability of masonry buildings in the area hit by the 1997 earthquake in Umbria and Marche``. I have a Master in “Structural Restoration of Historic Monuments and Buildings” with a final internship and a thesis done at Bath University in the United Kingdom.
I work for an engineering firm in Verona. I’m in charge of a technical area called ‘Restoration engineering’ in which we design and analyze historical buildings, including those that are listed.
In recent years I have been directly confronted with the aftermath of Italian post earthquakes. I went to L'Aquila in 2010 to the base camp of a construction company, built in Onna, a town severely hit by the earthquake. As an observer technician, I heard and saw the difficulties encountered by construction companies and local technicians in living the reconstruction of their land
During the restoration design of the Palazzo del Podestà, in 2012 we had to put in security the palace after the earthquake happened in Emilia Romagna that year. The Palace had been hit very hard. The last project we are closing in this period concerns a historic building overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice. This work taught us how to deal with the consolidation of a building in that particular foundational situation and which must respond to the phenomenon of high water.
So the management of the disaster, from an economic and social point of view as well as from a technical point of view, is a part of the job that I consider fundamental for my training and career. It would be useful for mastering my high level of expertice.
It could give boost to the technical area I'm responsible for, and expand our point of view beyond the technical aspect, thanks to the insight this academy will give me.

Sarah Adel Mohamed

My Name is Sarah Adel, I work as an Architectural Team Leader in one of the leading companies in Cairo, Egypt. I have been equally devoted to the research side; as I concluded my diploma degree in 2015 in Environmental Design, followed by the master degree in environmental engineering in 2020. My dissertation is entitled {Applications of Agricultural Wastes as Natural Thermal Insulation Materials – Case Study of Residential Buildings to Achieve Sustainability}. This study investigates the use of thermal insulation materials, and its implications for buildings. With this research, I have been working to secure a place for myself in the scholarly community. In the past 2 years, I have delivered one paper at a respectable online magazine, SMC issue number 11,2020; entitled “Climate action and SDGS’ attainment: insulation materials’ impacts assessment”, and two papers at the WREC 2021 conference held in Lisbon, Portugal; entitled “Buildings’ Thermal Insulation Materials’ Market and Drivers: Global Outlook and Assessment in the Context of SDGs” and “The Role of Circular Economy in Mitigating Climate Change Impacts: Thermal Insulation Materials’ Assessment in Developing Countries”. These three papers were done with the cooperation of my co-author and mentor Professor, Doctor Mohsen Abolnaga.

Greta Montanari

I am Greta Montanari, Architect recently enrolled in the Order of Architects of Bologna.
I graduated this October at the University of Architecture in Ferrara, with a thesis that focused on the urban regeneration of an industrial area on the Ravenna dock, on which was carried out a research and study that focused on the theme of smart cities. In particular, with the support of Professor Gabriele Lelli, we focused on how to bring more physical movement within the daily rhythm of the citizen, to increase his psycho-physical well-being within urban life.
During my studies I had the opportunity to enrich my path through international experiences, such as a period of Erasmus mobility at the Technische Universität in Vienna, where I had occasion to see a completely different modality of design and treatment of the built. I also attended the International Summer School of the Porto Academy, where I had the possibility to meet professionals from around the world in the context of the Portuguese School of Architecture. During this period, I attended an intensive workshop created by the Norwegian architecture and landscape studio LCLA Office. Encountering ideas and approaches so different from each other has certainly contributed to my professional and personal growth.
During my studies I did an internship at the Designo Architecture Studio, where I had the opportunity to approach the project for the Italian Pavilion for the Venice Biennale 2021. Later, I also worked as an architect in this studio. After graduation I also collaborated with the Mazzucco-Altoè Architecture and Engineering Studio, where I was in charge of the survey of a residential building in the Treviso countryside.
Currently I work at the Consorzio Futuro in Ricerca as a freelancer, where with the Departmental Research Centre D.I.A.P.Re.M. I’m experiencing Scan to Bim procedures for the Civic Archaeological Museum of Verucchio, archive work for the Fassa Bortolo Sustainable Architecture Award and survey CAD procedures on historical monuments with archaeological importance on international scale.
Why the summer school is important for me
I am strongly interested in attending the Summer School After the Damages because for me it would be an opportunity to acquire techniques and procedures for the survey and analysis of damage that I previously did not deepen during my studies. I also believe that such an experience can enrich my skills to work more consciously on the built and that this awareness could add value to my contribution within the Research Department in which I am currently working. The international nature of the discussion with other professional figures, to discuss the topic of risk management, also draws my attention. This is therefore an opportunity for me to grow both personally and professionally, in a context of continuation of my studies.

Francesca Peyron

Matteo Piscicelli

My name is Matteo Piscicelli, I’m an architect and I graduated at the University of Ferrara where I developed a master thesis on the reconstruction of the village of Santarcangelo di Romagna, then I attended the Postgraduate School in Architectural Heritage and Landscape at La Sapienza University of Rome. I worked as a research fellow at the Unife Architecture Department focusing on the restoration and digitalization of cultural heritage, with ongoing projects in Italy and abroad.

Abdallah Ragab

Academic career:
I finished my pre- MSc in environmental architecture design, and now I’m writing the thesis ”Blue-Green Systems for Microclimate Enhancement and Efficient Resources Use in Informal Settlements of The Developing Countries”. Professional Experience:
I’m a practitioner architect who worked in the construction supervision field, interior design and product design field, landscape field, and project management field.
Nowadays, I’m part of a team is working on the conservation and adaptive reuse of the Mohamed Ali Gabakhana building in Masr Al-Kadima, Cairo, which is a 19th-century building - a gunpowder factory and a military barracks -. The building area is more than 20000 meters square. My roles in this project are: making the project time plan with the owner, the conservation consultant, and the adaptive reuse designer, coordinating site surveyor work, coordinating architectural documentation work, coordinating the interior design work and providing any missing data, supervising works, besides administrative and paperwork. This summer school is important for me because:
The heritage environment is an anchor point of the city's image and people’s collective memory, as they witnessed significant events in the old city's history. In Egypt, the urban fabric is very chaotic. The dominant urban tissue of Cairo consists of informal red bricks and concrete buildings, deteriorating parts of historic Cairo and its heritage buildings, and modern heritage buildings. informal settlements have the biggest share as they form more than 60% of Cairo's urban area, which is very dense, populated, inadequate, undeveloped, and very vulnerable to climate change impacts. In this context, heritage buildings can play a very important social and cultural role in the local community towards its development and tackle environmental challenges on the microscale. I’m seeking to address environmental challenges in a heritage building via analysis and intervening to mitigate it.

Pedro Silvani

Francesco Tioli

I graduated in 1988 from the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Florence, with a thesis on the survey and representation of the bell towers of the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence.
In 2002 I obtained the title of PhD in Survey and Representation of Architecture and the Environment at the Department of Planning of the Florentine university; the doctoral thesis, entitled: ``The churches of the crusader castle of Shobak in Transjordan: archiving and management of survey data`` concerns the study of the typological and geometric aspects of the churches present within the castle and is inserted into a multidisciplinary research concerning Crusader sites in the Holy Land.
I actively deal with architecture in both the university and professional fields by participating in various researches, especially in the cultural heritage sector, paying particular attention to the operational aspects of the survey and management of the collected data.
My experiences include traditional and advanced methods, with a view to increasingly integrating skills and technologies. I have worked in different fields by extension and typology, from archaeological survey to territorial survey, combining different methodologies and instruments.
My interests in the last period have turned to the cognitive investigation of building organisms with particular attention to conservation and reuse aspects.
After the damages Summer School represents for me an opportunity for growth and knowledge towards a holistic approach to the issues of prevention, risk reduction and reconstruction.

Eleonora Trebbi

My name is Eleonora Trebbi and I graduated last year in architecture at the University of Bologna with a thesis in urban requalification. Since graduation, I have started working in an architectural firm that also deals with urban redevelopment and sustainability.
I began to understand the importance of preserving cultural heritage after the Emilia-Romagna earthquake, and in particular when I first went to Mirandola as a summer camp volunteer. I had the opportunity to see how people and the local administration have dealt with this situation.
I sent the application to the Summer School because, as an architect degree, I think it is really important and interesting to see how other architects and other countries deal with calamitous events and I would like to deepen my knowledge on the issues of post-disaster and reconstruction in order to face situations unexpected events.

Arthur H A Vieira

My name is Arthur H A Vieira, I am an architect and urbanist from Brazil, graduated from the Pontifical Catholic University of Goiás in 2018 and currently a student of the Postgraduate Program, Professional Master's Degree in Restoration and Conservation of Monuments and Historical Centers (MP-CECRE) from the Faculty of Architecture of the Federal University of Bahia (FAUFBA) with work entitled ‘Elaboration of Norms and Criteria for intervention for the Safeguard of the Pioneer Nucleus de Goiânia-GO’. This work deals with the perseveration of the culture heritage of the city of Goiânia, state of Goiás – Brazil – and of other Brazilian cities, as it raises the discussion about the normative voids in protected areas in Brazilian cities and their interface with urban development policies, which ignore or even destroy architectural, urban and environmental values that anchored the process of patrimonialization of the downtown area of the city.
In light of climate change and the natural disasters that have occurred in recent years in Brazil, the scope of this research is expanded and begins to incorporate risk management and conservation plans for the preservation of the built and cultural heritage. Examples of this scenario are the rupture of the mining tailings dam in the cities of Mariana (2015) and Brumadinho (2019) - Minas Gerais, the floods in the city of Petropolis - Rio de Janeiro (2022) and the landslides in Ouro Preto. – Minas Gerais (2022). These cases point to the need to articulate the preservation of cultural heritage and the management of risks in affirmative actions, capable of containing the losses and damages caused by climate change and anthropic events.

Gianluca Croce

I graduated in architecture at the Engineering and Architecture Department of the University of Trieste, with a thesis entitled “Surfing Crisis,” a research with a theoretical-critical approach that investigated the connections between architecture and the 2008 crisis. I participated and collaborated in international and interdisciplinary workshops that investigated: the design of public spaces in contexts afflicted by conflicts and ethnic contrasts; the issue of abandonment of the building stock in the various manifestations of shrinking cities; the redevelopment of fragile areas through promoting a slow, environmentally and socially sustainable forms of tourism. I am currently a PhD candidate and the research project I am developing ocncerns the issue of subtraction in architecture, analyzing how the effects of disasters, or simply those related to the natural degradation of buildings, profoundly modify both the building and the very concept of the design process. Starting from these premises, I investigate how some contemporary architectural practices use the tool of subtraction - whether simulated or real – as a design device capable of trasmitting a sort of “learnign from disasters” approach. Therefore, “After the Damaes” summer school is a precious opportunity to investigate the problems related to the analysis and methods of recovery in risky contexts.

Anna Khachatryan

I am motivated to participate in this course to broaden my horizons and strengthen my professional skills.
Since the beginning of my studies, I have been interested in urban development and the architectural heritage of cities.
I continue to study the issues that contribute to the creation of cities and places and am interested in multi-layered study and exchange of experience of the problems faced by cities. Also, I research methods, theories, and strategies for preservation and sustainable re-use in a global context of the architectural heritage of cities.
In an urban planning project, I usually consider the main sectors which are composed of economy, sociology, geography, politics, and culture. These include cultural heritage preservation, restoration, and valuation.
However, those urban issues cannot be addressed by a single discipline. Now I study the principles and methods of participatory architecture and planning which studies all possible aspects that have an impact, crisis situations, disasters, anthropogenic effects, and others. Also, it attempts to actively involve all stakeholders in the design process to help ensure the result meets their needs and is usable and will enhance the stakeholders’ sense of ownership, identity, and pride. Historical heritage is an integral part of this.
As an aspiring architect, I am especially eager to become acquainted with different design styles and techniques. The course aims to promote the development of different awareness and skills that I believe will help to deepen my knowledge and give me a new look to improve planning and policy-making decisions that will be extremely valuable for my further studies and work.
