IN RESIDENCE DESIGN DIALOGUES
NATURE THROUGH ARTIFICE
Among the events of Turin World Design Capital, the project IN Residence, created a 48hours workshop, in which five designers reflected with a group of thirty students from specific institutions dedicated to design of the city of Turin.
Subject of the discussion / creation has been the role of design as an expressive resource sensitive to environmental conditions. In its impact with the environment, design produces “new” objects that become in time integral part of the landscape. Pre-existing landscape and created object – “nature” and “artifice” – are the two starting points from which the IN Residence project starts.
