INTERDEPENDENCE: Politecnico Design System's event

INTERDEPENDENCE – designing relationships” is the main contribution of the Politecnico di Milano‘s Design System (of which POLI.design belongs) on the occasion of the Milano Design Week 2024. It focuses on the relationships and connections that characterize our world. It is a city-wide event that gathers the urban fabric, citizens, and visitors. Ecology and natural resources, economic interdependence and supply chain, culture and information, technology, politics and society, welfare, common goods, and food resources: these are the themes the project faces. Indeed, works by Design, Architecture and Engineering students from Politecnico and by Design students from 50 other universities will be on show at the Fabbrica del Vapore, Bovisa Durando Campus, Salone Satellite, and other hot spots around the city. From performances to lectures, guests from all over the world will enrich the program.

Fabbrica del Vapore, via Giulio Cesare Procaccini, 4 | Opening: Tuesday 16th April, 6:30 PM | Exhibition open from April 16th to 21st, from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM
