Emanuela Margione is an architect with a PhD in Architecture, Built Environment and Construction Engineering obtained cum laude at Politecnico di Milano, where she covers the role of assistant professor, lecturer and thesis co-supervisor at the Master School of Architecture, Urban Planning and Construction Engineering (AUIC). She is also a Core Group Member of the GUDesign (Geneaology of Urban Design) research network. Currently, her research investigates the role of Complex Buildings and their complex architecture in shaping urban spaces and triggering identity processes.
During her fellowship at the LOEWE research cluster “Architectures of Order”, with a project entitled “When Chaos defines the rules. Re-reading Complex Building and the Architecture of Complexity in Oppositions“, she will deal with this theme starting with a critical reinterpretation of the magazine Oppositions, published between 1973 and 1984. In particular, she will reinterpret the magazine’s articles from an original point of view that will attempt, on the one hand, to identify some essential spatial characteristics of Complex Buildings and, on the other, to understand the role of Chaos and Complexity within the design process as described in the epistemological discourse on Contemporary Architecture. Emanuela Margione is conducting research in the LOEWE research cluster from May to July 2023.
