For the seventh year in a row, Professor Oliviero Godi of Milan Politecnic and I will be organizing an Architecture Summer School in the North of Italy. This Year Theme is Utopia, working on the largest sweet water Island in central Europe, celebrating the 501 years anniversary of the publication of the Utopia book by Thomas Moore.  
The site and the residence location are magnificent, on the Lake of Iseo, between the Swiss Alps, Northern Italy plains and Milan. The location is better known for the Christo installation “the Floating Piers”. The project will be for a reflection on the notion of Utopia, 501 years after the book Tomas Moore wrote on the subject, involving new technologies, spatial and social organization. The project will be a proposal for the Island to be entirely reliant on renewable energy, and to see the architectural and social implication of such a transformation of energy infrastructure.
This year we would be happy to welcome students from the EPF-Lausanne Architecture School. The tuition fee is quite reasonable at $300 and there are shared rooms in the Yacht Club for 10 Euro a night.
Find as attachment the workshop poster, a few images of the workshop location. Please forward this information to your undergraduate and/or Graduate students, as we are open to both either level. For additional information you can contact either mail@exposurearchitects.com or Fredlevrat@gmail.com
