Expo by Expo: designing Milan after 2015
Post graduate degree in Landscape Architecture
Milan, 6-15th march / 29th march-2nd april 2015
Which destiny is expected for EXPO 2015’s site? Has urban agriculture a future? What will water ways’ project generate on landscape? The organization of one of the most relevant event in Italy produced not only a physical transformation in the northern part of Milan, but also induced a lot of different projects and events connected to the Expo’s main theme: Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. After its conclusion questions are going to emerge about the utilization of a large part of territory chosen to hold the event for its physical and locational characteristics. The sites cleared from Expo’s temporary pavilions will be a new extraordinary resource in this difficult time, a gift to citizenry that is going to be a challenge for the authority. The post graduate degree is released by Polytechnic of Barcelona (UPC Foundation) for the participation to the design workshop of 150 hours “Expo by expo: designing Milan after 2015” (20 ECTS) in which results of the realization’s process will be analyzed and new design opportunities will be proposed to the local administrations involved. Meetings, lectures and guided tours to Milan and Expo’s site will allow to develop several proposals with international professors of the Master in Landscape Architecture.
