Izmo runs the 5th edition of the International Summer School in Turin (Italy) from 22th to 31st of July 2015. This year, the focus will be on public spaces and students will design and build street furniture and installations in order to set up an open air cinema in Chieri (Turin). The course aims at attracting students – both under and post graduates -, professionals and, in general, anyone who is interested in the subject of public space and creative re-use. The project is developed in collaboration with Techlab, a community-operated workspace in Chieri.
The lectures will be held by experts and professors of Landscape, Urban, Furniture and Interaction design, in order to develop a broad and multidisciplinary perspective on the subject. In addition, students will have the opportunity to experience methodologies and techniques that will enable them to work creatively with waste materials and to learn participatory design practices.
The training will be further enhanced by a meeting with Truly Design [Italy] and esterni [Italy]: as special-guests they will show their projects and explain their approach to the topic. The Summer School is taught in English. At the end of the lessons, participants will work on the design and production of street furniture and installations using sustainable materials, in order to set up an open air cinema in a public green area inside a brownfield, in the city of Chieri. The installation will be inaugurated by a friendly and informal ceremony, showing a movie in collaboration with the movie theater and the Municipality of Chieri. Each student will be equipped by all necessary material and work tools and will be mentored by Izmo and Techlabstaff in every phase of the project. Participants students will be awarded 4 credits, issued by the Politecnico di Torino and valid at any other university. In addition, we will provide constant help in logistics, housing research, mobility, and tourism.
