Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The urban forest “Parco la Goccia” will be the unusual classroom for a seminar that will provide the
students with the opportunity to design for plants as stakeholders.

The objective is to:
• offer a radically different perspective, and
• expose participants to other ways of “sensing” and approaching a design challenge,
• allow participants to feel the interaction between plants and humans through different senses,
• create opportunities for them to understand the perspective of plants and different life forms, and
• ultimately envision and develop credible design solutions that can include:
o spaces
o materials
o systems
o artifacts
o interactions/services
and that enable a symbiotic relationship between people and nature.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

Day-by-day ideation and concept development:
• understanding plans through direct multi-sensorial experience
• understanding plants: how they grow, how they sense the world, how they react, etc.
• acquiring a deeper sense of nature and plants’ life experiences
• ability to design with a life-centered (and not only a human-centered) approach
• reflect and propose design solutions that are generated to serve plants and other living creatures
as stakeholders, without prioritizing human interest and advantage
• experience reciprocity and empathy with the environment


Argomenti trattati

Modalità di valutazione

Students will work in small teams. Each team will develop independently separated original projects.
The evaluation criteria for this course will be based upon the student's capability to understand the workshop topic, to generate concepts, to critically analyze feedback, to develop and present innovative and poetic ideas based on the stimuli and process suggested by the instructors. Coherence with workshop objectives (Designing from the Plants’ Perspective) will be fundamental.
A positive and collaborative attitude to teamwork and active participation during the course, will also be favorably considered.
