The City Unknown with continentale:

A call for participants for The City Unknown, the IAF Summer School 2024.

This online workshop, “The art of flânerie“, will delve into continentale’s hobby as flâneurs. They will reveal how their practice of strolling through the city and observing the everyday has influenced their projects and activities as a practice. They will share their research on ordinary residential architecture and Milanese post-war gardens in Italy, uncovering hidden typologies, patterns and tools that can be applied in different urban contexts.

Important booking information:

The IAF Summer School is open to all, including professionals, academics, graduates and students. It will be of particular relevance to architects, artists, activists, creatives, cultural practitioners, community workers, urbanists, geographers, film-makers and anyone with an interest in architecture, sustainability, design and the built environment. CPD points are available for participating registered architects.

The City Unknown is free to attend, but booking is essential as places are limited.

The IAF Summer School is in three parts. It also runs on 11-12 May with METASITU and on 17-18 May with Spolka (both in-person at IAF House, Dublin).

It is possible to book for one, two, or all three parts of the Summer School. Please book for each event separately.

All IAF Summer School events are presented as part of the LINA Programme.

Giulio Galasso is a LINA Fellow 2024/25 with the project Miniera, in collaboration with Natalia Voroshilova.
