Local Intelligence, Universal Applications/

Tuesday, June 12/

Drawing on the legacy of Victor Papanek’s and James Hennessey’s book Nomadic Furniture, this panel explores architectural modularity and shared knowledge taking the atelier LUMA pavilion as a case study to reflect on the meaning of producing locally in a global context. Featuring an innovative palette of biomaterials developed in Arles and the Camargue region, the pavilion addresses the question of enhancing a local biotope and how specific territorial contexts can radically redefine the design process by liking the local with the global, the peripheral with the universal.
