Summer School: “Sewing a small town. Environmental networks and strategic places” (Gassino Torinese, 18-30 July 2016)

“Sewing a small town. Environmental networks and strategic places”. International architecture summer school
Gassino Torinese (Italy), July 18-30, 2016
The design themes will focus on the renovation, reuse and re-utilization of old and valuable buildings located in the areas surrounding Gassino Torinese to be transformed in strategic places to be integrated into a contemporary territorial context to create a smart, open-source system of cities, that makes everything circular: it will be a territory of the hybrid and of “former” structures to be transformed into poles for the creation of a network of public transport and social exchanges today non-existent. Projects to connect former factories, former bus and tramway stations, former agriculture structures and former other things, are the main goals of the projects developed by the participants during the two-week workshop.
