Archistart, following the success of IAHsummer editions promotes IAHsummer17, an international architecture workshop, incorporated within a holiday, created in order to generate interactive experiences between students and young graduates under the age of 32 years.
One hundred thirty young people from all over the world will have the chance to live 12 days full of architecture immersed in the landscape of the wonderful coasts of Salento.
As from 2017 Archistart gives its summer a makeover: the designing workshop IAHsummer (1-8 August) will be followed by IAHconstruction (8-12 August), an extra self-construction session for winning projects of IAHsummer17.
In the new vision IAHsummer becomes an integrated lab of design, experimentation and self-construction.
IAHsummer17 workshop (1st to 8th August 2017) will involve 100 young people split in teams and followed by tutors who will provide all the materials necessary to produce the documents required.
IAHconstruction (8th to 12th August 2017) will involve 30 IAHsummer17 participants that will build the 3 winning projects of the design phase.
Archistart continues the research and the study in the field of tourism, with a specific focus on youth tourism, a key-resource for the area hosting its summer events.
The theme of IAHsummer17 is the design of a temporary room, a “special tent” to be realized in the same hostel where the workshop takes place. The housing unit/temporary cabin should be designed to be made with simple materials that are also easy to find.
The three temporary rooms realized during the construction phase of the workshop will be rented to tourists from 13th August.
Workshop entries will begin 16th March 2017 and will end 15th July 2017.
