Il ciclo di conferenze “Climate change(s) design” intende avviare un dibattito interdisciplinare sul tema “cambio di clima e progetto”. Come la progettazione e il disegno del territorio in particolare stanno modificandosi in relazione ai cambiamenti ambientali attualmente in corso? Quale Ŕ il ruolo del progettista nel quadro pi¨ ampio? Gli incontri affronteranno il tema raccogliendo contributi anche esterni alle discipline progettuali.

 

The conference seriesClimate Change(s) Design” aims to stimulate an interdisciplinary debate on climate change and design. Lectures will focus on how the discipline of design, and landscape design in particular, is being reformulated in the light of the environmental changes we are currently observing. The series eventually tries to shed some light on the transforming role of the designer within the broader frame.
