The [im]possible living web community is growing very quickly, but structuring a process to actually restore abandoned buildings all over the world is a very difficult and complex task. So we decided to test the ideas we are developing in the real world and, from Sunday April 1st to Tuesday April 3rd, we organized a workshop for architecture students to elaborate a management and architectural concept to give a new life to an abandoned building in Milan.
In the past month we studied the theme, developed a program and prepared lectures in order to present all the relevant aspects of an abandoned building renovation: how the web can help to develop a collaborative process, the best architectural and management approaches, the hypothetical financial structures of these operations.
This incredible work was possible thanks to the help of Ciclostile Architettura and AreaREM, our partners expert respectively in architecture and real estate: both helped us so much creating this amazing experience and we want to thank them for the great work they did with us.
The other important partner of this adventure is IRA-C, an association of students mainly attending architecture, that are looking for their head office and decided to participate to the workshop in order to actually create it.
