The 6th edition of the PAO Architecture Summercamp will be held at two fascinating locations: the Italian city of l´Aquila, and the Romanian village Potoc. These beautiful places will form the background for intense and ambitious "Design to Build"-sessions where exceptional ideas can be created, communicated and built.
PLACE 1: L´AQUILA
The city of l´Aquila is a fantastic, beautiful place high up in the alpine Abruzzo Mountains, 100 km from Rome. After a major earthquake in 2009, there are still many tasks waiting for creative intervention: New "Hot Spots" for the demolished city center, and "Cool Places" for students and young people. In the fantastic medieval city of l´Aquila, however, concerns of Cultural Heritage will be play an eminent role. The summerschool will be organised in cooperation with the University of l´Aquila and it´s students.
PLACE 2: POTOC
The village of Potoc is a remote, quiet settlement close to the city of Timisoara in Southwestern Romania. In 2009, a PAO camp was held there already which prepared an ambitious follow-up project for this year: the re-fitting of the old village school-building into a "House of Creativity". In cooperation with the villagers and local artists, a new scheme for a sustainable culture institution is to be conceived - and put to reality.
The two-week session in l´Aquila goes from August 30th-September 10th; the two-week session in Potoc from September 13th-September 24th. Interested participants can join both workshops in sequence.
The workshop adresses students, prospective students, and professionals of architecture, arts, and culture studies alike. The workshop programme includes lectures, design studios, field trips, and a visit to the Venice Architecture Biennale. Prospective international participants will come from Italy, Spain, Romania, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Egypt and Japan.
