Course aim

Open to architecture students from around the world the summer school invites participants to work towards an innovative concept for a residential building. A new residential model, integrating both private and public properties as well as individual and collective functions, for dwellers of different age groups, nationalities, lifestyles, and urban behaviours: a “contemporary Babel” in Northern Milan. Participants will propose design ideas on the making of such an heterogeneous and diverse community and its role in the redefinition of urban and architectural form.
