Sewing a Small Town: the renaissance of a historical center

The design themes focus on the renovation, reuse and re-utilization of old and valuable buildings, now in disuse, and the rethinking of public places to be integrated into the urban context, now partly in ruins and without an active identity to enhance the past of the town. The summer school will explore the possibilities of conscious interventions in the historic center through contemporary sustainable architecture. Addressing the new buildings within the residual spaces, the re-utilization of buildings and interventions at the seam between the old core and the peripheral parts are the main goals of the projects developed by the participants during the two-week workshop.
