70 hours workshop. 8 lecturers
The intent of MediterraNew Permanent Workshop is to investigate new possible approaches in the development of projects for the communication and enhancement of the cultural heritage and landscape in the Mediterranean area. Basically our students will develop project proposals to find new strategies to endorse and innovate UNESCO buffer zones policies and guidances from a fresh, design oriented point of view.
This workshop can be a complete stand alone architectural design experience in a very special landscape and cultural environment or it can be a perfect opportunity to apply what learned during Winter Workshop for those students that will apply to both sessions.
The educational experience will be centered on island discovery and an architectural competition: groups of four students will work on their own project and challenge for 2014 Best Design Proposal Award. On site lectures and tutoring sessions will help participants get the best out of their design proposals.
On April 10 2014, during Salone del Mobile 2014, at Mediateca Santa Teresa (Milan), AIS/Design, the Association of Italian Design Historian presented the Manifesto of Design History. Designers, in this moment of crises, can’t forget the history and what it was been good from the past. The “manifesto” explain what is necessary to remember about the history of design and what designers need to change. At the conference Vanni Pasca, President of AIS/Design presented also Design Tour. The project consist in a itinerary about the history of Italian design, composed by seven lessons in the most important memorable foundations (Albini, Castiglioni, Pirelli, etc) museum (Kartell, Museo della scienza e della tecnica di Milano) and historical archives of design in Milan. Now, the museums and institutes haven’t got the power became important. It’s the moment to reconfirm the design power and management.
Easy to read and understand by design professionals engineers, scientists and students, “Materials that Change Color” is the new book of Marinella Ferrara (Politecnico, Milano) and Murat Bengisu (Izmir University of Economics), published by Springer. The book introduce the chromogenic materials, a class of smart materials, that change colors. It presents their characteristics, advantages, potentialities and difficulties of applications to help understanding what they are, how they work, how they are applied.
The books also present a number of case studies: products, projects, concepts and experiments using smart materials, thus mapping out new design territories for these innovative materials. The protest and occupy movements recently broken out in different regions of the world, including the Arab Spring and the recent Gezi protests in Istanbul, have brought onto the agenda the potential of creative resistance. These demonstrations have proceeded with their own peculiar visual culture, icons and symbols. Protests which were set off by strong economic and political concerns were marked by the creative use of artifacts, images and spaces. This creates an opportunity to discuss design’s relationship with the cultivation, organization and expression of social dissent. An examination of the role of design in political outcries requires questioning both established boundaries of design discipline and practice and conventional conceptions of political struggle. Questions regarding the issue include examining the representative and/or constitutive roles of design practices, the ways design addresses and transforms power relations within a given society/social order and the transformations that design thinking and practice undergo during periods of strong social dissent.
The intent of MediterraNew Architectural Design Workshop is toinvestigate new possible approaches in the development of projects for the communication and enhancement of the cultural heritage and landscape in the Mediterranean area. The project is going to interact actively with our rich Mediterranean heritage through an innovative approach that takes into account both architecture and economics while respecting the lifestyles of local communities. The workshop follows the line of the activity, promoted and guided since 2012 by the architects Giorgio Martino, Giovanni Perotti and Dimitris Pikionis, in order to promise the inclusion of the monaster of Panagia Chozoviotissa, on the island of Amorgos on the List of tentative UNESCO sites in Greece. Theory and practice will find the perfect fusion in the contributions of teachers while the students will be asked to formulate innovative ideas to revitalize their Mediterranean heritage. The event, dedicated to students of architectural and design faculties, is divided in two different moments. The first part of the workshop was held from March 14 to April 27, 2014 at DanceHaus (Via Tertulliano, 70 Milano). Next step it’ll be to start from 8 september to 12 october 2014.
Fabrica design a collection of limited edition objects inspired by a trip to Lebanon in January 2013. The collection interprets certain aspects of the Lebanese daily life, uncovering secret, undisclosed elements. Touring the Lebanese capital for a full week, the designers absorbed the visual, technical and aesthetic details that enrich the multi faceted Lebanese culture.
The result is not a collection of objects, but a unique international vision and interpretation of the Lebanese way of living, mixing past and present and playing homage to the future of ongoing country. Each designer’s work encapsulates the re imagining of a district, time honored craft, where the specialized technique of the artisan has formed the basis for the designer’s creations. In fact, the collection is developed following local traditional techniques and is produced by a team of expert craftsmen in Lebanon exclusively for the boutique of the National Museum of Beirut. The project is created by Nicolas Bellavance Lecompte and Pascale Wakim, founders of Carwan Gallery.
This project is presented by Fabrica at the Nocturne, the yearly event organized by the National Heritage Fondation at the National Museum of Beirut.
We would like to thank the Italian Embassy and the Italian Cultural Institute for their high patronage.

The Abadir Fine Arts Academy of Catania, offering unique paths in design education in Sicily and recognised by the Ministry of University and Research, was selected by a prestigious German committee as being one of the ten winners of the “MOOC Production Fellowship” competition. Promoted by the Iverstity startup and the reputable Stifterverband fuer die Deutsche Wissenschaft German foundation, the course entitled Design 101 (or design basics) led by Prof. Stefano Mirti was the only Italian winning proposal. It will start next fall and will be one of the first experiments for online Italian design education. Dedicated to offering online courses for the new generation, the Iversity platform tears down all geographical boundaries and opens the doors to students from all over the world. The MOOC concept (Massive Online Open Courses) already advanced in the United States, seems to be the future of education. Abadir has the opportunity to become one of the protagonist institutes in this experiment. An experiment in an on line world where distances and boundaries are no more relevant, where content and the community’s strength is what matters the most.
Izmir Mediterranean Academy is established as a think thank institution and a democratic platform, both.
The story of Izmir Mediterranean Academy started with the meeting of the in October 24th, 2009. One of the main products of this workshop, attended by artistic and intellectual circles both from Izmir and also those who love Izmir alongside public opinion leaders of the city was to create a consensus over a vision for Izmir.
The first element of this vision was to develop Izmir’s international relations by transforming it into an effective node within the network of major Mediterranean cities. The second element was to enable the qualification of Izmir as a city of design and innovation for enhancement of Izmir’s role in the world economic division of labor; and the third element was the implementation of governance that is sensitive to participatory processes, respectful of human honor.
Upon this decision, Izmir Mediterranean Academy was established on March 12th, 2012 by Izmir Metropolitan Municipality. The founder chairpersons of the Izmir Mediterranean Academy are Professor Halil nalck and Professor Ilhan Tekeli. Professor Tevfik Balcolu, Professor Aye Filibeli and Professor Zeki Arkan are members of the scientific board of the Academy.
The city of Izmir has embraced different cultures of Mediterranean region through the history, and has been a focus of libertarian and democratic cultural circles in Turkey. Izmir, as the third largest city of Turkey with more than four million inhabitants, can be a point of focus for development of libertarian and democratic vision for Mediterranean region, too.
On this aim, the Academy will carry out activities about history, design, culture art, and ecology. It aims to serve as a democratic platform for designers in Izmir. Izmir Design Forum was initiated by the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality on May 31, 2011. The Academy will carry on decisions that were taken in Izmir Design Forum. It will realize the first meeting of the designers in Izmir on April 12, 2013.
