Lecture series architecture, urbanism and landscape

Curator: Studio Paola Viganò


In the framework of today’s socio-ecological transition, different human and non-human communities need to live together in new ways of life: how to live with wild nature in the city, how can underprivileged communities find their space in dense metropolitan areas, how can different activities come together in public spaces, etc. This lecture series focuses on the creation of new typologies of space, which accommodate and inspire new ways of life through a technical, political, and ethical process of collective choices.
