DESIGN WORKSHOP

Partie pratique en présentiel – du 12 au 23 juillet

Design Studio

The Design Studio 2022 is an intensive two-week in-situ workshop, from July 11 to 22.

The workshop takes place in French but will be adapted to English speakers.

This year, the Transition Workshop focuses on the critical issues of the changing Geneva landscape. The Geneva site selected for 2022, in collaboration with the Canton of Geneva, is located in the municipality of Perly-Certoux, on the Franco-Swiss border.

    • The ecological transition requires a new approach to the planning and planning of spatio-temporal sequences. Nature, culture(s) and habitat(s) are emerging as powerful vectors of decarbonization and resilience of cities and countryside.
    • The Transition Workshop 2022 focuses on the crucial question of the urbanization of increasingly large parts of the territories, such as the Geneva rural municipality of Perly-Certoux, and its future development challenges.
    • Far from imposing a single point of view, the Design Studio will designate the matrix of possibilities, both in terms of landscape protection, local agriculture and densification, without forgetting the crucial issues of biodiversity, mobility and social participation.
    • All of these themes will be discussed with public and private actors, and will be subjected to the tests of decarbonization and resilience, according to the strategic foresight methods developed by the Braillard Architectes Foundation as part of the Eco-Century Project®.
    • The Workshop will allow participants to project spatio-temporal sequences carrying the Ecological Transition, in order to submit them to the critical and benevolent gaze of experts and actors.
