International architecture & design workshop
IAHsummer is an international architecture, DIY and communication festival, in its sixth edition this year, created and promoted by Archistart. It takes place in San Cataldo – on the seaside, near Lecce – at the Ostello del Sole, from 1st to 7th August 2019.
The participants are students and young graduates, under 35, from all over the world. They live together for 7 days, sharing ideas and gaining essential experience, surrounded by the wonderful landscape of Salento coasts.
The innovative aspects of the initiative are the breaking of traditional learning processes and the focus on: integration and cultural exchange; exploration of the Apulian territory; design experience in a stimulating
environment provided by the close contact with tutors; positive competition; hands on the experience of DIY projects construction.. and a lot of IAH fun!!
IAHsummer2019 is a multidisciplinary creativity and urban regeneration festival. Young architects and designers will live an experience of a network, interaction with the territory, and fun.
The festival is divided into 3 workshops:
The architectural design workshop participants study the design topics identified by Lecce’s coastal areas regeneration program.
The architectural design workshop consists of an initial concept phase, followed by a phase of detailed design and production of technical drawings.
The self-construction workshop activates interventions for the San Cataldo waterfront regeneration, as done in the past editions.
The installations will be built in the
area in front of the Ostello del Sole to experiment an alternative use of the promenade.
The self-construction workshop starts with a preliminary project that is detailed and built by the participants.
The communication workshop develops a visual identity for the IAHsummer2019 festival. The objective is to visually describe the creative process of the three workshops during the public event of August 7th on San Cataldo’s sea promenade. The communication workshop starts with a phase in close contact with the other two workshops, followed by a phase of material production.
