Description
Isola Pepe Verde and Isola Art Center invite artists and architects to submit a proposal for our open call titled "Sprouting Minds" with the objective to redesign Isola Pepe Verde's garden in Milan, with a specific focus on its playground area. The project must serve an an alternative to the city's urban or global public spaces which reflect a toneless international design. The theme of the game and the invention of new rules becomes the concept of the competition. The game is interpreted in two ways: first, as space/time practice able to generate new imaginative principles in a child; secondly, as an alternative to the opposing norms of the adjacent city.
