NOOSPHERE XX1 – A Mobile and Evolving School
From April 2 to September 12 the Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University, Domus Academy and NABA will take part into the XXI Triennale International Exhibition 2016.
The three academies continue along the path of their international collaboration addressing crucial topics, exploring next scenarios and defining the shapes of the future design education. The project is the result of a multicultural experience connecting cultures and traditions by pushing and extending school concepts and visions into the XXI Century.
The concept development started with the idea of ‘Noosphere’, an evolving classroom built as a pavilion in the Triennale garden. An authentic learning experience in a living environment in which students, teachers, visitors, and nature are connected through the common experience of a constant evolving learning through projects, workshop activities, lectures, events and exhibitions on seven main themes: Variety and complexity of design objects. The evolution of functional art //Bionics, design and artificial intelligence: a shared platform for future synergies // Design and future society. Future design culture applied to education // Hyper-connectivity and collective intelligence. An urban, domestic and public perspective // Italian design after design // The big waste: an ethics/ aesthetics challenge // Biological science. Energy utilization from biosphere.
