1-6 July 2012
@ STRELKA INSTITUTE
During the workshop the participants will develop new solutions to common sets of problems that afflict both capitals with projects that link the field of urban development, architecture and new media. After comparing sites in both cities and using the tool of “soft urbanism” we aspire to answer this question:
How can a new approach to urbanism -soft urbanism- contribute to the city and to urban development?
The projects will consist in ideas to convey new values for specific sites in both Moscow and Beijing, like: services, new functions, installations and urban games, represented through analog, digital or hybrid digital/ analog presentations.
The workshop will be led by the “Hutopolis” team (Giannantonio Bongiorno, Luis Aguirre, Eugenia Murialdo) with prof. Frans Vogelaar and prof. Elizabeth Sikiaridi and the support of other lecturers and researchers.
