Whoami presents two cutting­edge designsummer camps

 

Milan, June 1, 2014: Whoami is pleased to announce its two online / offline design summer camps: Architecture, Between the Sea and the Sky and Community Design, that will take place this summer in Sicily.

The Whoami educational project is growing rapidly. In only one year, the “Whoami design game” / prototype evolved into more sophisticated systems and shapes. From Ceramic Futures for Cersaie, to the Design 101 MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) for iversity with over 40 000 enrolled students, the itinerant one year Master Relational Design for Abadir Academy of Fine Arts and Design, the for your community project for Alta Scuola Politecnica and a collaboration with ETH Zurich for Biennale Urbana at the Swiss Pavillion of the 14th International Architecture Biennale in Venice, Whoami is now preparing a special summer 2014 program.

Following Whoami’s teaching model, the summer camps will mix online activities with hands­on “offline” workshops.

Architecture, between the Sea and the Sky will start online on July 14 and move offline to the Impact Hub in Syracuse, Sicily from August 4 to August 9, 2014. Led by Francesco Librizzi, Stefano Mirti and the effervescent Design 101 team, students will create space between the land and the sea, below the sky. They will use architecture as a tool to convert a place into a state of mind. Two grants of 450 euros will be given to the best applicants who submit their curriculum vitae and portfolios before June 20, 2014. This summer camp will be held in english.

The Community Design summer camp will last from July 19 to August 3, 2014 and take place online and at the Abadir Academy of Design and Fine Arts in Catania, Sicily. Together with Alessandro Mininno and Fabrizio Martire of the communication studio Gummy Industries, students will “learn by doing” online communities. They will design and build online communities, understand their dynamics and how to take advantage of them. As part of the Masters Relational Design, this summer camp will be held both in Italian and in English.

Applications for both summer camps are open to all until July 1, 2014.

About Whoami

Whoami is an educational project created by Abadir and IdLab with the aim of adapting design education to the changing world.

As Stefano Mirti, head of Idlab states, “the use of social and new media in the teaching environment, transforms the classroom into a community. If McLuhan was pointing out that “the medium is the message,” now we are at a next stage: “the community is the message.””

Indeed, in the Whoami world, the success of particular classes or projects is given by the quality and quantity of interactions between the students and the teaching crew.
