It is spontaneous.

A video is 1000 pictures. The follwing relates the process to make one plug in.
Each one of the plugs ins that we are designing varies slightly in how is being implemented depending on our concept, the conditions of the structure, our skills with the tools we are using etc. However the basic structure looks like this
- Take pictures of the public structure that you want to use for the plug in.
- Upload pictures to 123D Captch to make a 3D scan of the structure. If you have an I-Phone you can upload directly as you take the pics.
- Import the file to a 3D modelling program. You can use free software like Sketch Up, or any other surface modelling program.
- Model your plug in around it. In this way you will have an almost perfect fit. But still have to deal with how it will be connect to it!
- Import your 3D model to 123Make, and select interlocking slices
- Save files and Laser cut them
- Put it together,
- Place it in the public space.
Of course, even if it sounds easy, prototyping to reality is the only way to know if it works. And not surprisingly there is still a lot of twicking and filing of the models to make them work.

- Each person chooses a concept and designs how it could work.
- Present the directions to each other to get feedback.
- Develops further the idea
- Present concepts to each other (16:30)
- Choose common objects to develop further based on previous direction and agreed aspects.
For that we first wanted to find out a global concept.
- How will it be connected?
- Who will do the designs?
- How will it be produced?
- What is the common concept?
The challenge is to answer this question in a way that we can bring a new and better possibility for people to interact and construct the common public space

After the conept and our aim was clearified, each team studied the process more in detail.
Stelle del quartier: To Do list
a cena: Story line and timeplan
First each group developed the story line for each project. What is happening, How we are going to interact with the public, How can the project be understood, …
Then we started prototyping the different process that people would interact with:
Stelle del quartier: First interviews in the quartier around Cascina Cuccagna.

Stelle del Quartiere
Stelle del quartiere is aimed at telling the story of Cascina Cuccagna and its surroundings collecting the memories of its main characters: people living and working there. With this project we hope to start an archive of information about the quarter, to introduce the inhabitants of the quarter to each other, to make them think of the developments of the neighbourhood.
The collection of information will take place in three different ways.
-a mobile unit that will meet people in the street, in parks, associations, shops in the surrounding of the Cascina starting from Friday, the 6th of April. The “Stars of the Neighbourhood” will be portrayed, interviewed, then represented on playing cards that people will read, collect and exchange.
-a temporary photographic studio held at Cascina Cuccagna during the Public Design Festival. During the Festival we would like to involve also some engaged neighbors to talk with guests about their experiences (i.e. living libraries).
-an open archive where people is invited to share their old and recent pictures of the neighborhood, memories, thoughts, recipes, … : one digital in form of a blog and one analogue in form of a pinboard at Cascina Cuccagna.
A cena. In tre atti.
Sentire, Avvicinare, Unire
Eating is an everyday action. The sameness in the way we live, separate us from the experience of this actions. Since we are not conscious about the act, this separateness obscure our capacity to experience and even make choices.
We propose a process to help our 12 guest experience the everyday act of eating, in a magnified way. The same food will be presented in 3 different environments revealing 3 ways of experiencing a meal.
MakerLab is about showing the processes and involving people in the making. For the Public Design Festival, we want to magnify the everyday act of eating. With this project we are not criticising the behaviour of our everyday life, neither categorizing good or wrong, but understanding through immersion in the process our capacity to know and to make a free choice. In this occasion we decided to choose Food and the way we experience it as our main focus, but we think this represents just one field in which making the process visible can help to wake up our consciousness. We strongly believe this experience could be applied to most of our everyday acts.

To keep sharing knowledge with the community, we will be recording every week a discussion about the theme we have been talking about during the week.
For this documentary we want to seat everybody around a table, and ask a question to the first interviewee. From what he is saying we find a keyword which will generate the question for the next person.
Everybody will listen to what the other says, and thus have the opportunity to build on what the other people is saying without repeating, but adding their perspective.
In this way we want to document the key information in a video, and keep the post-production to a minimum.
(Video will follow)

Day 3 was about putting thoughts together to identify what are our common goals.
1. We first arranged the questions that we have (day1) into four categories.
- Round Table: Involving, Communtyt, Participation, ..
- Responsibility: Share resources, Space, Low impact, …
- Experience: Sense, Inspire, Amusing, Disrupt, Fun, …
- Activate: Challenging, Activ, Reactiv, Empower, …
- Reborn: Possitive change, Seeds, Refresh, Change mind,…
We finally decided who wanted to work on each topic and separate two groups
- Round Table & Reborn
Licia, Bert, Davide, Maryann, Giulia, Elena
- Activate & Experience
Alessandra, Luca, Joanna, Iana, Diana, Pedro
