Fassi, Davide; Motter, Roberta
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conferences on Education Technologies (ICEduTech) and Sustainability, Technology and Education (STE) (New Tapei City, Taiwan, Dec 10-12, 2014)
This paper is a reflection on the use of public spaces in towns and the development of a system-events toolbox to activate them towards social cohesion. It is the result of a 1 year action research developed together with POLIMI DESIS Lab of the Department of Design to develop design solutions to open up the public spaces of the campus to the neighbourhood. The results have been tested in an event format called "il Sabato della Bovisa" held at the "Durando Campus" of the Politecnico di Milano. It presents a series of initiatives to understand, observe, and to benefit from members of a public university triggering a process of knowledge exchange between residents and students in a climate of conviviality.
