Hybrid Factory/Hybrid City Symposium

FULL: the Future Urban Legacy Lab - Toolbox coworking - Via Agostino da Montefeltro 2, Torino

How can today’s factories co-exist with other uses in cities?

On February 14, 2020, architects and urban designers from around Europe will meet at the Future Urban Legacy Lab - Politecnico di Torino to participate in the symposium Hybrid Factory/Hybrid City.

Contributors will collectively contribute knowledge about ways to return manufacturing to cities as a hybrid and sustainable program that leads to social and economic equity. The conference’s core interests are evidenced through posing the following questions: How do we break the planning and land use patterns of segregated zoning by class and function? Why does mixed-use zoning often fail? How can the hybrid model change with new technologies, sustainable manufacturing, and advanced production systems? What can the hybrid do for the future of flexible and innovative cities? Ensuing discussions will build public awareness and renewed appreciation of the importance of mixed-use and sustainable manufacturing.

The Symposium is organized by
