MInDS 2022 - Contested Content Design Studio


Visiting professorship, Politecnico Milan / IT

Aslı Çiçek is invited as visiting professor to lead one of the ten workshops in MInDs 2022 at Politecnico Milano, between 7th and 19th of February 2022. Her studio 'Contested Content' will work with the students on exhibition architecture to be designed for works of the Italian Futurism movement, on five given sites in Milano's architectural heritage.

MInDS / Milano International Design Studio is an intensive design workshop conceived as an international exchange and education platform, activated between the third and fourth semester of the Master’s degree program ACI-BEI. The workshop, which develops over two weeks, is articulated in ten distinct classes held by ten different visiting professors, committed to questioning ten different topics.

The scope is represented by architectural design, which is also the object of study and experimentation. But it is a form of design that can no longer be recognised in a single scale, or in a predetermined typological catalogue. Rather, it concerns an architectural know-how that tries to be open to contaminations coming from other practices, to better respond to the demands of an heterogeneous and constantly changing reality.
