Archives For DREAMHAMAR

Pendants ces derniers mois, j’ai dédié une grande partie de mon activité professionnel au projet dreamhamar, un processus de création participative et network design de Ecosistema Urbano.

Avec le but de redessiner et de revitaliser la place principale de Hamar, en Norvège, Ecosistema Urbano a proposé, au lieu de développer un projet d’architecture traditionnel, de mettre en place un processus transparent et ouvert basé sur un réseau participatif local et international. La principale difference de cette methodologie (dénommée network design) par rapport aux autres projets participatifs est que, au lieu de chercher un consensus generale autour d’une seule proposition, elle encourage la multiplicité et la non-linéarité des differentes propositions, permettant aussi une expérimentions à l’échelle 1:1 par la realisation de constructions temporaires (mock-ups).

Depuis Ecosistema Urbano, nous invitons les étudiants, les architectes et les créatifs de tout le monde à participer au processus de création collective dreamhamar, en s’inscrivant aux workshops en ligne que nous décrivons par la suite.

Negli ultimi giorni mi sono trovato a seguire con un’attenzione particolare i tragici fatti avvenuti in Norvegia.
Ad un coinvolgimento emotivo personale, si sono aggiunte delicate questioni professionali riguardanti il progetto dreamhamar che stiamo sviluppando ad Ecosistema Urbano per la cittadina norvegese di Hamar.

Con questo piccolo post volevo solo manifestare la mia solidarietà col popolo norvegese, pubblicando queste foto commoventi di Jon Kristian Fjellestad e ricordando in segno di speranza l’affermazione del premier Jens Stoltenberg: 

“Risponderemo con più democrazia”

The article begins by explaining a networked-learning project carried out at Ecosistema Urbano, called Urban Social Design Experience, and explains how this project allowed to define network design methodology. At Ecosistema Urbano we are actually applying network design in the project dreamhamar.

“Learning is not a product of schooling but the lifelong attempt to acquire it.” – Albert Einstein

For several months we have been developing in Ecosistema Urbano a project focused on expanded education. These last few weeks, we gave it a close look and we would like to share our thougths with you.

The project in question is Urban Social Design Experience (USDE) and we presented the first session – which ended recently – as a series of online courses (experiences). During these experiences innovative approaches and lines of work in urban culture and urban management were presented.
