Susanne Komossa
Delft University of Technology, Faculty of Architecture
Susanne Komossa graduated from the Delft University of Technology, Faculty of Architecture. After working as an architect in architectural offices in Rotterdam and Amsterdam she started in 1991 her own Rotterdam based firm Komossa architecten bna. As an associate professor of Architectural Design she coordinates, teaches and lectures since 2004 in the masters program of Public Building at the Delft Faculty of Architecture. Her research and teaching focus on Public Realm: composition and tectonics. She is co-editor and author of Atlas van het Hollandse bouwblok (Bussum, Thoth 2003). The English edition ‘Atlas of the Dutch urban block’ was published in 2005. It was accompanied by a traveling exhibition and lectures on a variety of themes concerning the Dutch urban block. In 2008 she defended her PhD-thesis ‘De transformatie van het Hollandse bouwblok in relatie tot het publieke domein; model, regel en ideaal’ (http://www.library.tudelft.nl/ws/search/publications/index.htm author: Komossa). Recently she has been working on the D/E edition of ‘The book Color in Contemporary Architecture, projects, essays, time line and manifestoes’ (Amsterdam, Uitgeverij SUN feb. 2009), published in fall 2009.
Participant in project: project leader of: AP-2. Architecture and the City: Public Building /Public Realm, Composition & Tectonics Anne Vernez-Moudon
College of Architecture & Urban Planning, University of Washington
Professor Moudon instructs students in urban design and research methods. She is President of the International Seminar on Urban Morphology (ISUF), an international and interdisciplinary organization of scholars and practitioners; a Faculty Associate at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, in Cambridge, MA; a Fellow of the Urban Land Institute in Washington, D.C.; and a National Advisor to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation program on Active Living Policy and Environmental Studies
Dr. Moudon holds a B.Arch. from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Doctor es Science from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale of Lausanne, Switzerland. Her work focuses on urban form analysis, land monitoring, neighborhood and street design, and nom-motorized transportation. Her current research is supported by the U.S. and Washington State departments of Transportation, the Puget Sound Regional Council, the Federal Highway Administration, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Her published works include Built for Change: Neighborhood Architecture in San Francisco (MIT Press 1986), Public Streets for Public Use (Columbia University Press 1991), and Monitoring Land Supply with Geographic Information Systems (with M. Hubner, John Wiley & Sons, 2000). She also published several monographs, such as Master-Planned Communities: Shaping Exurbs in the 1990 ( with B. Wiseman and K.J. Kim, distributed by the APA Bookstore, 1992) and Urban Design: Reshaping Our Cities (with W. Attoe, University of Washington, College of Architecture and Urban Planning, 1995). Dr. Moudon has been an active participant in The Mayors' Institute on City Design since 1992. She has consulted for many communities nationally and internationally to develop urban design guidelines for new construction which respect the character of the existing landscape and built environment and which support non-motorized transportation. She has worked with planning officials, design professionals, and neighborhood groups in the Puget Sound as well as in San Francisco, CA, Toronto and Montreal, Canada, Stockholm, Sweden, among others. She taught courses and conducted seminars in urban design, planning, and housing in Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Japan, France, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland. Philippe Panerai
Architecture Schools of Versailles
Fellow of the Institute for Urban Design (New-York)
Grand Prix National d’Urbanisme 1999
Philippe Panerai was born in 1940 and trained in Paris, at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts and the Institute of Urbanism, University of Paris.
Professor at the Architecture Schools of Versailles (from 1969) and Paris-Villemin (1995), he became head of the school of Paris-Malaquais (2000-2004). He also taught at the French Institute of Urbanism (IFU) and was involved in the Doctoral School City and Environment (ville et environnement). As a researcher and later Scientific Director of the LADRHAUS in Versailles between 1975 and 1989, and within the ACS research structure of the Paris-Malaquais School of Architecture, he produced works on the morphological approach of cities, examining Paris and the transformation of urban fabric in the XXth century; creation and development of new towns (the Bastides, Versailles, Brasilia, and others); and the form and structure of Islamic and modern Cairo. He also provided theorical contributions on urban design project practice.
Philippe Panerai’s practice encompasses several different urbanistic territories:
.design of public spaces, urban revitalization (the Teisseire quarter in Grenoble, or in Le Havre), and the rehabilitation of industrial wasteland and brownfield sites (Caen, the port peninsula, 100 ha),
.extension of cities (Rodez, new district of Bourran, 200 ha; Metz, côteaux de la Seille, 30 ha; Massy, 45 ha; Versailles, industrial site of Satory, 450 ha),
. town projects (Reims, Sarcelles, Romainville or Saint Jean de la Ruelle) as well as territorial projects involving large transport infrastructures (Seine-Amont, 8 000 ha; Plaine de France between Paris and Roissy-CDG, 16 000 ha; RN 103 between Marne la Vallée and Rosny). Panerai has been consulted on urban projects in Beirut (Libano), Cairo (Egypt), Temara near Rabat and Casablanca (Morocco), gran Canaria (Spain), Porto Alegre (Brazil).
He was a consultant for the Guangzhou Institute of Urban Design for the construction of a city at Taizhou and a fellow of the Institute for Urban Design in New York.
Panerai is co-author of several publications on urban form that address the question of the evolution of urban fabric in relation to the large contemporary urban scale. Titles include : Formes Urbaines : de l’Ilot à la barre, 1977 (Parenthèses, Marseille), second edition 1997, (with J. Castex and J.Ch. Depaule); Versailles, lecture d’une ville, 1980, (with J. Castex); Les Bastides, 1986; Analyse Urbaine, 1999; and Projet urbain, published by Parenthèses (with David Mangin). Panerai’s most recent book is Paris Métropole, formes et échelles du Grand Paris, published in 2008, éditions de la Villette, a remarked contribution to the debate of the Grand Paris.
He has also examined the relationship between agricultural land and urbanisation, (namely the mechanisms of the “informal” in Cairo), and the organisation of territory in the built-up area of Guangzhou (“Guangzhou rivale de Shangaï”, in the French publication Urbanisme, in may / june 2003).
Philippe Panerai was awarded in 1981 and 2009 the Prix Georges Haussmann, in 1999 the prestigious Grand Prix de l’Urbanisme and in 2007 the Silver Medal of the Académie d’Architecture, for Teaching and research.
