Innovation in practice: unlocking architecture in the city

Politecnico di Torino

In the course of ten days of successive and parallel workshops, master students of architecture will engage with a process of public transformation of a former industrial site in the city of Turin.

The site was the subject of a call for applications promoted by the Co-City competition (winner of the first European Urban Innovative Actions call) that proposed the design of forms of collaboration between administration and active citizenship, and now suspended. With the purpose of ‘unlocking’ a blocked process of transformation of public space, students will experiment different approaches to the agency of design actions.

Through scientific contributions offered by experts in their own field from five different European institutions, the Summer School will give students the tools to strategically approach complex procedural problems through architectural design as a collective and socio-technical tool for action, and to effectively intervene as actors within a diachronic design process.
