The first week of Architekstura aims to provide education about the city and in the city, to awaken the discovery and understanding of the daily urban environment, of public space and its inhabitants, human and otherwise. Through observations, sensorial explorations, listening exercises, interviews and group elaborations, participants will be accompanied to create a mapping of the needs and resources of the neighborhood which will be used during the second week to design an element of street furniture. 



From Monday 4th to Friday 8th September 

inspired by Sedicente Moradi and Anastasiia Yermishyna, Onouka

The second week of Architekstura is dedicated to the conception and construction of an element of urban architecture co-designed by the children, the girls and Sedicente Moradi, a Florentine artist. The work is conceived as a gift to the walls of the Tabacchi Factory in perfect harmony with the fabric of the spaces and respecting the surrounding environment which hosts the work and does not pollute.
