Deep Space @ NONUMENT!

“What happens when an object loses its original purpose? Why does architecture find itself displaced, unwanted and repurposed?
Buildings and physical infrastructure possess a longue durée that is fundamental to their spatial and political impact.
But their long-term pretension can also become their undoing: politics, society, media and culture change faster than bricks and concrete.
Structures can usually adjust only in very expensive ways: with renovation or destruction.
History leaves behind either heritage or rubble, both a sort of an architectural ‘living dead’.

Ethics of Technology

Our current geological age is being described as “anthropocene”, as the epoch during which human activity is the dominant influence on climate and the environment.
But we do not need to consider a “longue durée” historical approach, giving priority to long-term historical structures over events.
Todays’ world is witnessing an unforeseen acceleration of environmental changes with a growing human influence on biodiversity and ecosystems with species extinction and climate change.

new CIVIC

Citizens take part in innumerable co-creation initiatives in the private and the public domains, and more importantly in the hybrid blur where the one can’t be separated from the other. These initiatives make use of recent concepts and developments, such as prosumer, bottom-up, peer-to-peer, start-up, social design, open design and design thinking. From a city perspective the well-established creative city will merge with the smart city into a new ‘Co-creative City’. From the citizen perspective the creative city and the smart city translates into the creative & smart citizen, shaping a ‘New Civic’.

Copy Culture

Design culture is obsessed with authenticity.
Copying is often deemed reprehensible, and borrowing another’s idea or incorporating elements of his or her work into one’s own is viewed as a sign of creative impoverishment. But is this right?
Hybridization is an evolutionary strategy of cumulative, dynamic cultures that are based on intercultural connections and fostered by cross-fertilization.

Security is a deeply-felt and debated theme: How can we reduce risk and increase the sense of social interaction and identity of social places?
Part of the World Design Capital 2008 and based on Torino case studies and in collaboration with the Torino Integration Policies Department the workshop aims to develop new design thinking models to address these issues.
Safe Space focuses therefore not on singular solutions but on general working tools to tackle these phenomena.
