XXV Monte Carasso International Architectural Design Seminar

June 30 – July 13, 2018

Director: Luigi Snozzi
Instructors: Mario Ferrari / Michele Gaggetta / Giacomo Guidotti / Stefano Moor

Special guest: Mario Botta


The Seminar, which has been an integral part of the development and urban planning of Monte Carasso started by Luigi Snozzi in 1979, is held annually as a two-week design workshop.  Over the years, under the guidance of architect Snozzi, of instructors and external experts, the attendees debated topics related to the development of Monte Carasso.

In the last five seminars, participants focused their attention on a wider area, which Monte Carasso is a part of, and addressed an issue of topical significance: the aggregation of municipalities in the Bellinzona district – an aggregation that hopefully won’t be a mere political and administrative deed but will provide a unique opportunity for territorial reorganization.

AA Visiting School nanotourism 2018

This years’ programme will research and develop strategies of nanotourism in Honolulu, Hawaii, a context defined by a mix of indigenous and contemporary cultures, operating in an environment globally famous for its industry of mass tourism. On an average day, Hawaii’s 1.4 million residents host 220,000 visitors and up to 35,000 people fly in and out of its airports. In 2017 more than 9.1 million tourists were projected to visit Hawaii, with an expected rise to just over 9.5 million by 2020. The intensive two-week,  research-design-build programme will focus on Kaka‘ako, an emerging and vibrant 600-acre waterfront district in downtown Honolulu. Through hands-on collaboration with local institutions, we will develop strategies and projects, that aim at challenging the existing notion of tourism by creating hyper site-specific interventions in 1:1 scale.

nanotourism is a creative critique to the effects of mainstream tourism and operates as a site specific, participatory, locally oriented, bottom-up alternative by stimulating mutual interaction between user and provider through co-creation and exchange of knowledge.
