Estensione’. New design challenges. From the project of our bodies to the project of the enviroment that sourround us is a university course I taught with Francesco Samorè.
It is the first of 4 teaching modules that make up INTESTERNO, a Final Synthesis Design Studio in Interior Design at Politecnico di Milano, created and coordinated by professor Giulio Ceppi.
SUBJECT: Estensione (‘Extension’) meaning a journey from inside our bodies to outside. Innovation and development in biotechnological sciences is redefining both ourselves as human beings, but also the space and the artificiality that surrounds us, shaping new scenarios and possibilities for the design profession.
WHEN: October 6th – 28th, 2014.
PROCESS: Students produced design concepts throughout an immersive period of frontal lectures, brainstormings, project reviews and the attendance of seminars with internationally acclaimed experts in different fields.
OUTPUT: 44 students, arranged into 30 groups (one or two people each) developed 30 concepts.
INTESTERNO was made in collaboration with:
Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto and Fondazione Giannino Bassetti.
With the support of: Bionike.
