Turin selected for XI International Workshop of Architecture and Landscape - RCR 2018.

U-SoA Visiting Professor, Mauro Turin has been invited by the 2017 Pritzker Prize laureates, RCR Arquitectes to teach in their XI International Workshop of Architecture and Landscape - RCR 2018. In 2008, the first International Summer Workshop was launched from RCR Arquitectes and RCR Lab·A until the creation of a seed format in 2012. From 2013, the management passed to RCR Lab·A in co-organization with RCR Bunka Private Foundation.

Now, during the month of August, there are workshops of Architecture and Landscape, Audiovisual and Photography, and Scenography, managed by RCR Lab·A, with an additional offer of a Dance and Graphic Design Program. The Open Program enriches the Summer Workshop with conferences and an exhibition, designed and organized by RCR Bunka Private Foundation.

The Summer Workshop was created to better understand Architecture and Landscape from a humanistic spirit. The coexistence in a space and time of different creative disciplines creates synergies for mutual enrichment between the parties.

The workshop is designed following four main ideas that articulate the program: Competition Format, Transversality, Sharing and Experience. Creativity must be at the origin of the concept, present at the initial moment where we give answer to the question we are asked, and should be shared by all the participants, being the common thread of the process. Everything results from creativity. The workshop focuses on the living as a direct experience of the participants, showing the territory where the work of RCR Arquitectes is rooted, with the aim of understanding their relationship with the site and the landscape, to share and pass on an attitude to life, architecture and creativity, putting into practice their working methods.
