The MakerLab Milan will take place within the third edition of the Public Design Festival. From 12th to 17th of April 2011.
We share many of the questions that the Public Design Festival stands for, and thought it would be a great opportunity to collaborate in the design , not just of the public space, but of our common futures by developing new ways of co-working and building the network of people that care for similar things.
How is it possible to make the urban environment surrounding us more comfortable, beautiful, and functional? How can design change and improve the relationship between people and the spaces surround them?
Think public: that’s the only way to survive in contemporary societies.That means sharing thoughts, ideas, and opinions, and being open to exchanges, information, and the development of new projects and collaborations. It means getting to know each other, your neighbours, and your city, with its little squares, lanes, and hidden corners. It means experiencing the city, rather than just cross it, imagining how it could be, and trying to awarely re-design it.
The festival will transform the public space of Milan. In each of the locations different public design interventions for the redesign of urban spaces will take place, as a citizen, we hope you can come by and help us redesigning the public space for all at this locations:
Cavalcavia Bussa / Cascina Cuccagna / Piazzale Cadorna / Rubattino
Finally but not less important, the Closing party will be held at the Parco Esposizioni Novegro, on Saturday, 16th of April
We hope to see you there, where we gonna be live- prototyping furniture, but also open to your ideas!
If you are a designer you might also be interested in the market with will take place at the same spot during the afternoon!
