MilanCyber-Gardening the city v2.0
Saturday 6 – Tuesday 16 July 2013
The ‘Cyber-Gardening the city’ project investigates the city as a fertile terrain for the breeding of new cultivation practices and ‘agri-urban’ networks. The programme will develop a series of research experiments allowing students to engage with the issue of urban agriculture by designing new ‘agriurban’ prototypes. These projects will address specific food-supply chains and how these relate to the metropolitan area of the city.
The prototypes will take the form of large-scale three-dimensional diagrams and correlated digital interfaces, which will be assembled for a public exhibition in Milan. This school, together with its debates and proposals, aims to create a conceptual and design framework enabling (in relation to the forthcoming International Expo 2015) the emergence of a platform for discussion about the relationship between the farm and the city.
Scientific Committee: Luca Molinari and Simona Galateo
