Summer and Winter Schools in Pavia

Mobile architectures and new ways to inhabit the territroy – 6-11 july 2020

“Mobile Architecture and new ways of living in the territory” is an International Design Summer School that explores the theme of minimal and mobile architecture as a tool to define new ways of living and reactivating the spaces of uncertainty that characterize contemporary society.
The second edition of Mobile Home ECOlab intends to promote a reflection on the relationship that exists between permanence and temporariness of architecture and on the possibility of intervening with minimal and reversible acts to trigger new ways of living in the territory.

The International Design Summer School will take place on-line and is organized by the University of Pavia with the collaboration of CrippaConcept, a leading Italian company in the mobile home sector.

The idea is to export the industrial product of mobile homes, now more than consolidated for the outdoor tourism sector, in other areas, in order to be able to respond quickly and effectively to emergency situations and rapid economic and cultural changes that are affecting our society.
