BIAGIO DI CARLO, architect
Known nationally and internationally for his publications and studies regarding ‘Design Science Structures’, architect Biagio Di Carlo received his degree in Architecture in 1976 from the University of Pescara. His thesis, written under the advisement of Eduardo Vittoria, received the maximum possible score and was published. Since then he has been invited to hold workshops, lectures and seminars in the following places:
the architectural faculties of Pescara and Ascoli Piceno, the engineering faculty of the University of Bergamo, A.I.B. in Viareggio-Camaiore (Lucca), Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA) in Milano, national meeting on mathematics in Castel San Pietro, Bologna-Italy, the Royal Academy of fine Arts in Copenhagen, the faculty of Architecture of Oaxaca in Mexico, the International Meeting on Leonardo Da Vinci in Perdizes, Portugal (2013) and in Vinci (2003), talk in Enschede ‘Bridge 2013’ (Holland), talk at the ‘Symmetry festival’ Delft (Holland), workshop at the faculty of Architecture of Puebla de Zaragoza (Mexico), workshop at the ’Instituto de Artes Visuales del estado de Puebla (Mexico), workshop at Tlamaya Grande (Mexico) 2014, workshop at the faculty of engineering of L’Aquila (Italy) 2014.
Dome Magazine, Bioarchitettura, l’Architettura Naturale, Spazio Architettura, Nexus Network Journal, ZRAlt!, Revista Digital Apuntes De Arquitectura.
He is also the author of several books, including:
POLIEDRI, POLIEDRI E SEZIONE AUREA, STRUTTURE GEODETICHE, STRUTTURE GEODETICHE ELLISSOIDICHE, TENSEGRITY WORLD (with preface by Kenneth Snelson), LE COPERTURE LIGNEE DI LEONARDO E LA NUOVA RICERCA STRUTTURALE, STRUTTURE E SCIENZA DEL DESIGN, BAMBU’ ARUNDO DONAX E SCIENZA DEL DESIGN, STRUTTURE RECIPROCHE E GEOMETRIA SINERGETICA (with preface by Olga Popovic Larsen), LA CUPOLA DI TLAMAYA, La cùpula de Tlamaya (in spanish), LE CUPOLE GEODETICHE DI ADRIANO GRAZIOTTI ( together with the engineer Claudio Lanzi), POLYHEDRA (together with prof. Claudio Lanzi and with prof. Silvio Maracchia).
RECIPROCAL FRAMES is an introductory book on reciprocal frames related to design science. The book expands my previous article ‘The Wooden Roofs of Leonardo and the New Structural Research’ already published on the ‘Nexus Network Journal’ (2008). These structures can be consideraded as forerunners to rigid tensegrity structures, wich can themselves be considered the forerunners to geodesic domes.At its most simple and natural form a design science structure starts as a three-dimensional weaving with reciprocal joint, expanding and oscillating in the space by means of the tensegrity joint and at last it consolidates and simplifies through the punctual joint.This expanded and updated english version of my book STRUTTURE RECIPROCHE E GEOMETRIA SINERGETICA (2009) links to the new topics described in my books listed in the bibliography.
