Program of public conferences
15 November 2013 8:45 pm at SAUL Studio
Since 2011, i2a istituto internazionale di architettura in Vico Morcote has promoted infrarealities, a program of studies on infrastructure and contemporary urban landscape with the goal of creating management and landscape development tools, to be used by public and private organizations and academic institutions. The area chosen as the perfect case-study is the valley of the Vedeggio, in Ticino.
This program collects the contributions of universities from around the world, developed with their students during residences at i2a in Vico Morcote. They thus take part in the research process and offer the possibility of a critical through via debates and conferences in order to question the program via design experiences from very different backgrounds (often with common objectives).
From Sunday 14 October to Saturday 3 November 2012, three schools will be based in Vico Morcote: SAUL-School of Architecture from the University of Limerick (Ireland), the Master in Urban Vision and Architectural Design of Domus Academy in Milan and the Fakultät für Architektur-Fachhochschule in Köln. In occasion of their stay in Ticino, a program of public conferences will be held at i2a istituto internazionale di architettura (first floor hall, Portich da Sura 18, Vico Morcote, Switzerland):
