ADSL 2012 Workshop

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

The School of Architecture and Design of Antwerp has launched the new edition of an International Workshop that will take place between the 13th and the 17th of February. Christian Kieckens, who organises the yearly event with great enthusiasm and passion, has the little habit to set a specific keyword for the workshop and for ADSL2012’s he came up with a particularly intriguing one: TRANSFORMER.
Lorenzo Bini will lead one of the workshops, and the Politecnico di Milano has 2 ‘wild cards’ to offer, which means that 2 valuable students will have the chance to join the workshop without paying any participation fee and will be offered free accommodation.
We’ll keep you posted with more details and the workshop program soon, stay tuned!

Today we have presented to the students the subject of our next Design Lab, which will take off in March 2012. We are going to deal with the refurbishment of a dismissed Milanese petrol station that was designed and built in the beginning of the 50’s by Mario Bacciocchi. The building represents a very precious heritage for the city and for its owner, Eni S.p.A. As we started to research about the history of the building, and the company, we realized how intriguing this project might become if all the issues around it will be taken into account…
