The DesignTalks series introduces Fabio Parasecoli’s research on the representation of food in films as a social and political battleground.
After an intense week of work, on Friday 24 October the students that just begun their Masters’ presented the projects completed during the kick-off workshop. The brief challenged the students with different themes: creating prototypes for a new calendar system with Fedrigoni, rethinking the function of the world-famous Cabanon by Le Corbusier, exploring new vehicle architectures to complete the Alfa Romeo line-up, from the compact SUV to the ultimate supercar, designing a stool investigating those typologies that are more influenced by geographical and cultural factors, imagining the new Lamborghini’s user experience in 2029 or devising innovative food and food-retail concepts. The week enabled students from various countries and background to get to know the school and to start collaborating, conversing and learning from each other. Here is a photo report of the week.
