Public Design Festival edition n° 3 will be held in Milan from 12 to 17 april 2011 with a new formula – no more 2to5 mt installations, but site specific projects scattered all over Milan from the city centre to the outskirts of town (Lambrate, Cadorna, Porta Romana, Garibaldi). Young designers, architects and projects makers can submit their projects to realise interventions, services, installations and public design projects. Deadline January 31.
Public Design Festival is made of a constant research that brings to Milan selected projects from all over the world with the aim of giving space to public space in building future cities. Cities shall be citizen-friendly, they shall be built on people and relations, cities to live in, not to survive in. The winning projects for this edition will be presented in a urban course that will be visible for the whole city and ready to be experienced from the citizens and visitors of Public Design Festival.
The aim of the call for projects is to make people sensitive to public space, to create a relevant new contest for designers – the pro-activity of all the citizens in the public agenda of our town. We want to create the possibility for all the designers to express their creativity in a festival that speaks of public space in a high prestige frame like the Salone del Mobile.
You can submit projects of any kind – installations, communication projects, urban services, actions, urban furniture elements, performances and any idea you can think of.
Deadline: 31 January 2011. Selected project publication – 1 march 2011
