MAKING – Alternative designs for Factories

MAKING – Alternative designs for Factories


The aim of the “Making” competition is to develop a design proposal for the factory typology, intended as a place of creation and processing of goods of any kind.It is asked to the participants to create innovative and unconventional projects on this theme, questioning the very basis of the notion of factory. Recently many initiatives, such as fab labs and Makers faires, have been proposing new interpretations of the functioning of factories, using on demand production and 3d printing to develop extremely successful models. With similar creative attitude the participants are urged to create an artefact, merging considerable programmatic innovation and valuable design tools. The proposal can be a device, a piece of furniture, an interior design project, a pavilion, a building or a urban plan. scale of intervention, program dimensions and location are not given and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their project.
