Organized by Kyle Miller.
Workshops led by Konstantinos Pantazis, Marianna Rentzou, and Curtis Roth.
Urban Interventions is a three-day design workshop in which students will develop contemporary interventions for the historical city center of Florence.
Architectural design workshops led by external instructors, public lectures, and a concluding exhibition and discussion with invited guests comprise the Urban Interventions special event. Led by Konstantinos Pantazis and Marianna Rentzou of Point Supreme and Curtis Roth of the Ohio State University, design workshops will investigate the formal and phenomenal possibilities of physical interventions within the historical urban fabric of Florence and their associated cultural and political implications and effects. In addition to the urban intervention as a primary topic of study, the design workshops will dwell on the notion of successive authorship and the embodiment of culture in architectural artifacts.
