Milano, 16 September 2019 – INTERNI will take part in the London Design Festival 2019 with two events featuring some of the most representative protagonists from the world of design culture. The common theme linking the work of the speakers will be a conceptual approach to design and a constant search fro new ways to modulate everyday spaces. Architects and designers who bring together art, design, architecture and urban planning to create new scenarios that are appropriate for contemporary urban locations.
Urban Regeneration: new city, new habitat, new technology, is the title of the first talk organised in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute in London, during which the destiny of the contemporary metropolis will be examined. In a discussion moderated by David Turnbull, director of Atopia Research, the speakers will be Alessandro Melis (Studio Heliopolis 21 Architetti Associati and curator of the Italian Pavilion at the 2020 Architecture Biennale in Venice) and Andrew Waugh (Waugh Thistleton Architects), two protagonists of international standing in the world of architecture, and engaged in the issue of environmental quality, who will exchange ideas about new city design, and comparing the Italian background and know-how with Anglo-Saxon design culture.
