The aim of this workshop is to understand the project as a tool of research.
We’ll focus the attention on the transformation of cities, where a continuous fight between the invasive force of the globalization and the persistent resistance of multiple identities is supported. We consider the public space as the focal center of the community, which brings together social life and all the conflicts of the city from the symbolic, morphological and functional points of view.
Changes are part of the real dynamic of our cities, cultures and landscapes, and we are called to find opportunities, better than problems, to improve the real environment and make our cities much more liveable than they are now. We’ll talk about big cultures, big infrastructures and big cities, but not forgetting “the small is the new big”.
