Domus Academy talk for Milano Arch Week 2020
Domus Academy is announcing its participation at Milano Arch Week 2020, the event dedicated to architecture, urban transformation and the future of the cities.
19th September 2020 at 11 am – The school will take part in the event with a talk titled “Table game. A research project inside Milan as a playground: Domus Academy workshop experience”. During the talk, there will be presented the projects ideas that were generated during the workshop organized by Domus Academy in collaboration with Arch Week. More than 30 students, from 14 different countries, from the Master’s in Interior & Living Design, Master’s in Urban Vision & Architectural Design and the Master’s in Fashion Styling & Visual Merchandising participated in this innovative challenge.
The workshop brief was created by Matteo Ghidoni who followed the workshop together with Matilde Cassani as project leaders.
Taking inspiration from Monopoly, the oldest and most popular urban board game that has been developed in different local versions, students had to redesign the city of Milan and its future transformations. Starting from this brief there were created 5 different project proposals: “Sarpi Social Street”, “Encounters”, “Love in Time of Pandemic”, “Triennale for Superstudio” and “Let’s work in a park”.
The talk will be opened by Mark Anderson, Director of Education of Domus Academy, who will pass the world to Aoi Hasegawa, Programme Leader of the Master’s in Interior & Living Design and in Product Design, for the presentation of the single projects. Following, will take place a debate moderated by Elisa Poli, Programme Leader of the Master’s in Urban Vision & Architectural Design, on the actual role of the architecture and the future of the cities with the participation of Matilde Cassani, architect and artist, and Lucia Tozzi, academic of urban policies and journalist of the sector.
The talk will be held on the 19th of September at 11 am at Giardino Giancarlo De Carlo of Triennale Milano. Join the event to know more about the creative ideas that came out!
