The IN Residence project is about design culture, taken as a process for organizing creative resources useful for generating innovative ideas. IN Residence Design is a non-profit association whose main goal is the planning, organization and implementation of projects aimed at promoting the culture of contemporary design.

The curators of IN Residence

Barbara Brondi and Marco Rainò are architects and designers interested in experimentation through the practice of design, theoretical research and critical engagement. In 2002 they founded BRH+, a studio that develops a wide-ranging perspective based on the concept of architecture open to interactions among disciplines. They work on art direction and have created various cultural projects in the form of exhibitions and publications.

Where and when the IN Residence project began

IN Residence – created and implemented in Turin and primarily focused on benefits for its region – is a program with educational aims, as well as objectives of promotion of design culture as a strategic resource for potential economic growth.
Structured as a non-profit cultural association, the project was created at the time of the event Torino 2008 World Design Capital with the goal of becoming a replicable format. From the outset its place of reference has been the Du Parc Contemporary Suites in Turin, a building with a dual role as a high-quality hospitality facility and a space oriented towards interest in outstanding cultural expressions.
