International call on Saturday 12 April
Milan’s Triulza Foundation NGO, which will manage Expo 2015’s Civil Society pavilion for national and international associations, is to invite young designers from around the world to help create the “identity” of the pavilion.
On Saturday 12 April, an event in the framework of the “Fuorisalone” celebrations will present what the organisers describe as an “international call”, or invitation to submit designs for elements of the pavilion, known as “Cascina Triulza”. Designs will be required to respect the theme statement of the voluntary sector pavilion – “Energies to change the world” – and bring out “the extraordinary power for change generated every day around the world by the activities of citizens, young people and organisations of the civil society”.
In particular, young designers are invited to submit plans for seating elements, mobile supports, sun-shading systems and themed kiosks for distributing products and samples.
The competition will be presented during a meeting under the headline “Can design be social?” organised by Architects without frontiers (ASF), the Triulza Foundation and the Exponiamoci association, when some previous examples of social design will be illustrated.
The meeting will be held at 15.30 on Saturday at ADA Stecca, Via Gaetano De Castillia 26; entrance is free. The programme can be found on this page of the Trulza Foundation website, as well as an invitation to be printed off. The details of the competition will then be posted on the website, after the meeting.
