Izmo will run the 5th edition of the International Summer School in Turin (Italy) from 22nd to 31st of July 2015. This year, the focus will be on the public space, and students will design and build street furniture and installations in order to set up an open air cinema in Chieri (Turin).
The course aims at attracting students – both under and post graduates -, professionals and, in general, anyone who is interested in the subject of public space and creative re-use.
The project is developed in collaboration with Techlab, a community-operated workspace in Chieri.
The lectures will be held by experts and professors of Landscape, Urban, Furniture and Interaction design, in order to develop a broad and multidisciplinary perspective on the subject. In addition, students will have the opportunity to experience methodologies and techniques that will enable them to work creatively with waste materials and to learn participatory design practices.
The training will be further enhanced by a meeting with esterni [Italy] and Truly Design [Italy]: as special-guests they will show their projects and explain their approach to the topic. The Summer School is taught in English.
At the end of the lessons, participants will work on the design and production of street furniture and installations using sustainable materials, in order to set up an open air cinema in a public green area inside a brownfield, in the city of Chieri.
The installation will be inaugurated by a friendly and informal ceremony, showing a movie in collaboration with the movie theater and the Municipality of Chieri.
Each student will be equipped with all necessary materials and work tools and will be mentored by Izmo and Techlab staff in every phase of the project.
Participants students will be awarded 4 credits, issued by the Politecnico di Torino and valid at any other university.
In addition, we will provide constant help in logistics, housing research, mobility, and tourism.

Izmo was established in 2006 in Turin, Italy. The association focuses on participatory process, local development, architecture, design and ICT. The name Izmo originates from the word isthmus, a thin line of land that joins two areas. Our research topic is in fact the territory: where interactions take place between public space and individuals. Our mission is to link the territories, the people with the land and the citizens with each other. We do this, for instance, through projects of urban design, installation; organization of seminars, meetings and workshops; and developing of Web platforms. In all cases, the projects designed by Izmo come from reading and from listening to people and places that will benefit from our operations.
