What’s to do: International students are called to discover, analyse, and discuss through lectures and guided visits Milan as a city where gardens, parks, and greenery have always been part of its continuous transformation during its millenary history. Focusing on environmental design and landscape architecture techniques, this course introduces – also to students without any architectural or landscape architectural background – the relevant meaning of these multi-layered open space infrastructures inside a contemporary urban metropolis.
What you will need: a daily tourist ATM ticket for metro, bus, tram, and train (4,50 euros/day); a sketchbook/notebook; pens and pencils; a smartphone or a tablet with wi-fi connection; a camera; a videocamera/action-camera, if you like; a laptop for the working days; your curiosity and your passion for discovering new things and good legs for walking...
What you’ll deliver: students will produce a video-clip (based on lectures and visits contents and an original screenplay), to be presented at the final discussion.
