Project Information

Students working in six small cross-disciplinary and transnational groups will design, resource, construct and display new innovative artworks/ architectural space concepts for a specific site in Bologna. At least two academics again, cross-disciplinary and transnational, are appointed to each student group to support them in the organisation and execution of their project.

The IP is supported by a number of seminars, site visits and workshops given by specialist staff on specific topics (see timetable) Selective film screenings will complement the programme. Each student group will deliver a brief presentation, introducing themselves their practice and project. Individual group presentations will be organised to sharpen the focus, and exchange ideas and good practice. The afternoons will be devoted to developing, making and installing the artworks and spatial solutions on site.  On the last day of the IP, each group will deliver a brief oral presentation on their projects.  Each project will be evaluated and graded by a group of staff consisting of their own teaching team and others from a different group. The evaluation consists of a qualitative assessment of the teamwork as well as the group project results considering quality, coherence, creativity and presentation. All projects will be presented to a wider audience in an opening event.


The IP is advertised at each partner institution through their web sites and notice boards. Each institute selects their students individually. Interested students are invited to present their work at individual interviews with participating staff. Criteria for the selection of students are excellence in the field of studies, affinity and interest in to space related practice, as well as previous work experience in relevant areas.
