Exhibition 'Design the proximity' and Public Program of meetings in collaboration with BASE Milano

Design Week 2021

‘Designing the proximity' is the theme that the Design System of the Politecnico di Milano - a unique research and education centre composed by POLI.design, School of Design and Department of Design - focuses on during Design Week 2021, in collaboration with BASE Milano.

There are two initiatives born from the collaboration between the Design System of the Politecnico di Milano and BASE Milano, scheduled for the Design Week 2021. During the week of the Fuorisalone, as part of ‘We Will Design’, the spaces of the former Ansaldo will present the exhibition ‘Designing the proximity’, with 30 projects by the students of the School of Design and POLI.design that offer different interpretations of the term “proximity”. A constellation of ideas from which a clear scenario for the city of the future emerges, a theme investigated also through the Public Program that, inspired by the book “Abitare la prossimità” written by the Honorary Professor of the Politecnico di Milano Ezio Manzini, will propose to the public a series of daily appointments in the shadow of GAIA, the installation dedicated to the planet Earth by the artist Luke Jerram. Two debates per day, at 6 pm and 7.15 pm: experts in the field, accompanied by lecturers from the Department and the School of Design of the Politecnico di Milano, will investigate different points of view on as many issues related to the city of proximity, from services for the neighborhood to public space in transformation, to platforms and economies of proximity.

These initiatives are part of the Politecnico di Milano program in support of the New European Bauhaus project.

 

The exhibition ‘Designing the proximity’ | Politecnico di Milano

Opening hours BASE: September 5-11, 10 am – 8 pm | September 12, 10 am – 6 pm
Free entrance, in possession of Green Pass

The exhibition ‘Designing the proximity’ brings together 30 projects by students of the Design System of the Politecnico di Milano that offer different interpretations of the term “proximity”. Those who design health services at a short distance from home, those who recover abandoned urban spaces and transform them into inclusive places, dedicated to children and the elderly, those who design new scooters to enhance slow mobility, those who strengthen and give space to the different identities of a neighborhood or a specific place in the city and those who build new communities around common interests, those who enhance the communication of services around the corner, those who design new pedestrian areas, those who transform streets into places of aggregation, those who collaborate with neighborhood stores and those who design local production of food and consumer goods. From this constellation of ideas, we read a clear scenario for the city of the future, based on a strong network of services spread in the neighborhoods and “around the corner” for the different urban populations.

 

The appointments of the Public Program ‘Progettare la prossimità’

Twice a day, for five evenings, the appointment with the talks organized by BASE and POLI.design, with the Department and the School of Design of Politecnico di Milano, with debates and points of view on the theme of the city of proximity in the shadow of GAIA, the installation dedicated to the planet Earth by the artist Luke Jerram.

Generative city and Citizen generations

What does an inclusive city look like? Are there any cities that are family-friendly, child-friendly, parent-friendly, elderly-friendly, and generally capable of welcoming the most fragile inhabitants? Can the pandemic lead us to rethink public spaces in a more inclusive and welcoming way for all?

Tuesday, 7 September

Design, platforms and economies of proximity

What relationship can be designed between physical spaces and virtual networks at the micro-urban level? What services can digital platforms offer to local communities? What design can characterize a (new) proximity commerce? How can design contribute to improve citizen engagement at the local level? Can creativity foster local transaction processes that insist on values such as reciprocity, relationship, subsidiarity? How do platforms work and what role do today’s user-experience disciplines bring? What design for proximity mobility? And what can orient the project to support (local) energy communities?

Governance: bottom up and top down processes

How are the actions of design and transformation from below modifying our cities? How do local governments relate to these unplanned processes?

Public space in transformation: from the residual to the unfinished

What is the role of public spaces in the future? How can residual spaces, little used or unresolved for a long time be reactivated? How can design encourage processes of urban regeneration by establishing a dialogue with the territory, both in contexts “full of living” and in “empty” contexts? What are the opportunities or criticalities in the design action on short or long term time horizons?

6 pm – 7 pm > First table moderated by Barbara Di Prete:

Around the corner: spaces and services for the neighborhood

What is the future of the neighborhoods of our cities? Is it possible to redesign a neighborhood dimension through co-design actions with inhabitants and local actors? Can public spaces and personal services be redesigned in a hyper-local dimension, strengthening a network of services “around the corner”, also thanks to a temporary design approach?
