From June 13 to 17 SOS8 Master’s Students of Sustainable Architecture and Design contributed in the "Design for Architecture" course at POLI.design featuring a new synergy between the two Post Graduate Schools that operate for professional training preparing students for the architecture and design job market.
After having presented their Final Projects developed within the Post - Carbon Architecture, The Right to Quality Shelter and Design of Products and Systems for the Circular Economy project tracks, SOS students have been invited to tutor and support POLI.design students in defining a concept aimed at re-establishing a proper relationship with nature and living beings through small individual gestures.
The students, alongside with SOS professor Lorenzo Gecchelin, shared the School's approach, design philosophy and best practices on sustainability and circular economy they have experienced during the 9 month program. Looking beyond one's own expertise to dialogue with all the knowledges that involve the creative and design act, they layed the groundwork for the realization of a small container - suitable for 3D printing - as a home for three types of city insects and birds: bees, swallows and bats.
Thanks to Poli.design for the great and valuable opportunity, to Lorenzo Gecchelin for the leadership and to both SOS and Poli.design students for embracing the challenge of the workshop, coming up with creative and innovative solutions to address the increasingly relevant issue of design for nature.
