XYZ 2018 · officina degli esordi
The objective of XYZ 2018: The challenge was ambitious: to co-design identity and website (X), digital bulletin board and access system (Y), shared programming and coworking services (Z) of the urban workshop OFFICINA DEGLI ESORDI, the largest cultural container of the third city of Southern Italy.
They were days of warmth, amazement and wonder: 64 participants from all over Italy, 9 teachers, 3 coordinators, the communication staff, the SOS team, the passers-by, the curious, not counting the participants of LUCity and their teachers,
join the adventure with the Creative Europe program.
For 8 days Officina degli Esordi hosted XYZ2018, a research and co-design laboratory that aimed to design the new course of the urban laboratory of the city of Bari.
Everything we have co-designed and created has been conceived by focusing
on the human being, paying attention to the aspects of environmental and economic sustainability and working on the idea of self-construction, thanks to the technologies of digital manufacturing and electronic prototyping.
