The Workshop consolidates for this third edition a stimulating partnership making the Sardinia Symposium the ideal context in which to discuss Architecture and Waste in an international setting amongst not only environmental experts, but also architects, landscape architects, and urban planners.

Waste Architecture is a new and relatively unexplored conceptual and design topic which promises to give rise to a lively debate between environmental professionals, architecture and urban design experts.

Strucutre and preliminary programme

The Workshop will be held at Forte Village Resort on 1-2 October 2019.
The first day will be devoted to the presentation of oral contributions organised in thematic sessions lasting 90 minutes, followed by opportunities for discussion and debate.
On the second day a practical landscape design lab session will be coordinated by professionals in the field. The workshop will comprise an introductory lesson held by University academics aimed at providing participants with the required basic skills to address the subsequent planning and design topic.

Participants will therefore have the opportunity to apply the theoretical notions learnt during the introductory lesson to an actual case study promoted by a company, and to exchange views and opinions with colleagues and experts as part of a working team.
