Scientific coordinator of the Multan Walled City project
Adalberto Del Bo, born in Milan in 1948 and graduated in Architecture in 1973, taught in Pescara, in Venice and in Milano where he is full Professor in Architectural and Urban Composition at the Faculty of Architettura Civile of the Politecnico di Milano. Prof. Del Bo has participated with projects and constructions in exhibits and national and international conferences. He published studies and researches in the fields of architecture and urban form with a particular focus on the aspects related to architectural code and to theoretical/practical aspects of design. His works make up an essentially unitary experience that deals mainly with issues of architectural theory and design, along with urban analysis and planning. Besides studying the methods of formation and transformation of cities (in Abruzzo and Lombardy), he combined in his research the attempt at codifying the elements of formal/historical analysis (the range of the inquiry widened to include issues of rural architecture and landscape construction) with the purpose of identifying the genealogy and the relationships linking the two experiences. Besides these interests, supported by publications and theses, he conducted studies on settlements (significant examples of the relationship between legislation and urban construction), on topics related to the idea of city (with particular attention to the Modern Movement) and to the principles and rules of architecture. His activity in architectural design and construction was published on national and international reviews and exhibited in Italy and abroad, while being object of testing and verification of the identified topics and issues. The team leaded by prof. Del Bo at the Politecnico di Milano organized in March 2010 an international symposium on The forms of the settlement together with an exibit on Lafayette Park, a residential settlement designed in the late fifties in Detroit by L.Mies van der Rohe and L.Hilberseimer. Prof. Del Bo leaded the Committee of the Conference Cities in transformation. Research and Design held in Politecnico di Milano in June 2012 by the architectural Schools Associations EAAE and ARCC. Among his projects, the following can be mentioned: Squares in Palmanova (selected at the Third Venice Biennale of Architecture), Project for Milano-Rogoredo and San Donato (exhibited at the XIX Triennale in Milan), Dal Futurismo al futuro possibile nell’architettura italiana contemporanea, (travelling exhibition in Tokio, Kobe, Kuala Lumpur, Bruxelles, Istanbul, Palermo), Progetti per il Ticino (Triennale di Milano).
