Feed Europe

In August 2014 I curated a Workshop and a Session at the 14th International Architecture Biennale in Venice. The project was supported by the European IP Programme (Intensive Programme) – the Erasmus Lifelong Learning Programme.

Together with colleagues from the disciplines of Architecture and Design, Civil Engineering and Integrated Food Studies at Aalborg University; esteemed researchers from the disciplines of Architecture and Urban Studies at Politechnico de Milano; Fine Arts at Gerrit Rietveld Accademie, Amsterdam; and Architecture and Built Environment at Lund University we “workshopped” with an interdisciplinary group of students for 10 amazing days.

The Feed Europe Summer School was a project that sought new synergies able to challenge present discussions on sustainability and at the same time able to reformulate the role of the built environment in this matter. We joined civil engineering, art, architecture, city planning, and food studies in a multidisciplinary approach – a conjoined action that was very successful and we were given the unique opportunity to perform a living Exhibition and Workshop Session at the International Architecture Biennale in Venice 2014.
