The project focuses on the transformation of the material obtained from the Christmas tree located in Piazza del Duomo in Milan in December 2017 into a new artifact designed for urban space in the city, in particular, a square inside the Municipality 4.
The workshop aims to offer to students a training and methodological path that can enable future designers to intervene in the complexity of design processes. An intuitive and practical figure, which ranges from exposing the brief to defining the concept, capable of concretely interacting from the first sketch to the design of a complex object and subsequently to its realization, up to its positioning in the urban space of the city. The basic principle applied to this course is “Learning by designing”. Teacher in charge of this didactic module was Giacomo Moor, graduated from PoliMi, now a successful designer in the wood sector. Emanuele Villani and Luca Panteghini collaborated with the teaching staff.
The constructive workshop aims to materially realize the prototype chosen by the jury of the design workshop, that will be realized inside one of the practical lab within the Department of Design. The training proposal of the course, mainly practical, is set according to the different stages of wood processing up to the finished product ready for installation. Organized in working groups, which will be re-modulated every day according to the calendar activities, and with the support of the technical staff, the students will cut, smooth and assemble the different pieces of the project. The basic principle applied to this learning path is “Learning by doing “. Lecturer in charge of the Working Wood Workshop teaching module: Mariano Chernicoff, responsible for teaching and research activities of the workshop and professor inside the Wood Design course at Politecnico.
