THE ITALIAN CHALLENGE – MARCH 7 – PAKHUIS DE ZWIJGER
Urban markets, creative use for vacant spaces, food security, conversion of polluted industrial areas and sustainable scenarios for cities. What can Dutch and Italian architects, researchers and other creative professionals offer each other in terms of urban challenges? And how do they work together symbiotically and yet conserve the qualities of both cultures? These are some of the themes we will discuss at The Italian Challenge on the 7th of March at Pakhuis de Zwijger.
Last year the Dutch Embassy in Rome and Consulate General in Milan called out for urban projects on food, water and energy. The purpose for this open call was to get Dutch and Italian architects, researchers and other creatives to work together on urban challenges. This resulted in a successful programme of Dutch Italian collaborations.
