Future Ways of Living Summer School. For the future of Area Expo

Designing new uses and solution for the former Area Expo with participatory design. This is what 70 practitioners, local operators, members of the institutions and students of different disciplines have been busy with at Cascina Triulza. They are at work on the Expo as Global Village International Summer School organised by Meet the Media Guru, Institute Without Boundaries | George Brown College of Toronto, XXI Triennale Esposizione Internazionale | La Triennale di Milano – in collaboration with Arexpo – within the project Future Ways of Living.

The International Summer School is preparing actual project to reconvert the former exhibition facility. In the coming months, the most brilliant solutions will be selected by a committee of experts to be included in the official Masterplan. In the meantime, the ideas to reconvert the millions of square meters that hosted the pavilions a year ago have been collected in an exhibition. The opening will take place on Tuesday 28 June starting at 6.30 pm at Cascina Triulza.


Following the opening there will be a dinner and the Simple Songs jazz concert by Backyard Duo.

The evening is open and free: you are all invited. To reach Cascina Triulza by car, we recommend to use  this map. The address is Via Cristina Belgioioso 70 Baranzate (MI). A few steps from the entrance to Cascina Triulza, you may park your car in the unguarded parking of the Bollate Correctional Facility.

For those who’d like to reach the event by public transport, Cascina Triulza is close to the underground M1 stop Rho Fiera Milano or by train at the Rho Fiera station. Just outside of the station, next to Cubo di Cristallo, a shuttle bus service will take you to Cascina Triulza and back between 6 and 10 pm. The shuttle will display the sign CASCINA TRIULZA SUMMER SCHOOL 2016.

In the gallery you may relive some of the moments of the “school”: between 19 and 26 June the students have spent the whole day sharing work and fun, under the coordination of Luigi Ferrara, principal of the Centre for Arts, Design and Information Technology of the George Brown College, Toronto and the Institute without Boundaries team. Several practitioners from Milan have also taken part in the session, contributing their know-how for the benefit of the participatory design process.
