In conjunction with our Milan Fall Design Week 2017 the school opens its doors to the public to show the work and the philosophy behind our daily learning journey.
Year 4 (a.y. 2016/2017)
Design Lab 3 - Unit CHANGES
Four interesting projects, one for each Primary year group, have been selected for the event in order to demonstrate the approach we use at Ludum. The projects will be the focus of a site-specific installation that visitors can follow to explore the combination of teaching, wonder, creativity and a simple problem-solving approach to find solutions to complex questions.
EMANUELE AND THE CHATTERING TREE
" In the story I wrote, the people are very distracted. They walk through the streets never thinking about the trees and so the trees become ill and weak and turn into pottery. To save them we need a hero who eats an apple and who remembers how to plant its seeds and how to look after them. To save them, we need a child. "
The designers who collaborate with Ludum have been asked to work with the children to present all the nuances and complexities of the ideas that emerged during the workshops last year. The result is the integration of different ways of communication, for example the video art and 3D modelling that are typically found in the design world, with the designs and sketches produced by the children during the workshops last year. The installation has been co-produced and organised, translating the children's requests using the designers' language and tools.
