Architecture Design Education News

Under the theme “Authenti-City (or the Unesco paradox)” the 2017 Made Labs in Syracuse work at the intersection of design, art, craft, and local cultural traditions. The eight days of workshops and lectures are conceived as a platform for discussion on the future of cultural heritage from both an architecture and design perspective. The event addresses questions like “Is the transformation of heritage sites into diffuse hotels and ersatz tourist attractions inevitable? How can we devise an alternative preservation strategy that limits the loss of informality and authenticity? How to prevent the homogenization (anglosaxonization) of tourist attractions?” and so on. The workshops feature well-known names in the fields of design like Arabeschi di Latte, Arquitectura-G, Fala Atelier, Sabine Marcelis and Bethan Laura Wood.
