Module 3 / Arts, Architecture, City

The module offers lectures on the relationship between the arts, architecture and the city as well as direct experiences such as urban exploration, the implementation of micro-infrastructures, events and high impact civic and symbolic performance actions in complex social contexts, with a particular focus on the intercultural city. The arts will be integrated as cognitive tools to understand the dynamics of the transformation of the present day city, in the guise of poetic glimpses capable of bringing to light aspects often barely visible as well as suggest their potential. Field work will be directly on the territory and with the communities that live there as well as international artists. The aim is to critically look at the mechanisms of production of the city and provide good practice and intervention tools at a national and international level. As part of the course an architectural object will be constructed on a scale 1:1, capable of interpreting the potential encountered in the territory to the exploration phase.
