Friday 26 April 2013– Thursday2 May 2013, 27/4-1/5 2013.
Institute for Environmental Education,E.N.A.O.L.I., GROSSETO, Tuscany, Italy.
Organization for the Environment LEGAMBIENTE.
TASK: some SPATIAL QUESTIONS, TANGLE POCKETS.
The last seven years there have been 9 regional, international and multinational documentation and design workshops. These workshops, as the one scheduled to be active in Tuscany-Italy, were based on the experimental verification by empirical means, of the validity of sympiosis in eutopia’s constitutional space and time terms (living and acting together into a communal pocket). The workshops are always triggered by an invitation held to the director and the team by a community or an organization (in this case the Italian Environmental Organization LEGAMBIENTE). The group, already into a new un-explored place and a unique landscape, will dedicate each and every activity (lectures, field reconnaissance, designs, texts, common long discussions) or means to effectively deal with a given spatial question. Thus, every member is becoming the vital unit of a team working process aiming to reach a result, combining the personal ability with the communal or general meditative need, interpreting and correlating with locus, landscape, cultural syntax and stereotypes ...an attempt to gain any and all empirical data of eutopia (...a term been given by Lewis Mamford in his epic book : The history of Utopias).
See the poster.
The workshop is open to unter-graduate students in the final years of their studies, to post graduate students and young architects (who have graduated in the last five years). Participants, 20 in total, will be selected on their CV/portfolio presentation (two (2) A4 pages in PDF format).
