Giovanni La Varra : Milanese chronicles (February 27, 2008)37:58

Ilaria Mazzoleni introduces architect and educator Giovanni La Varra.

La Varra discusses his research practice Multiplicity Lab’s analysis of the city of Milan published in “Cronache dell'abitare” (Bruno Mondadori, 2007). They mapped three kinds of living situations:
•Living in the condition of difficulty (informal settlements, bidonvilles)
•Temporary or transient living
•New ideas of community life

La Varra concludes with a brief discussion of “Post-it City,” an exhibition about temporary structures at the Centro de Cultura Contemporanea, Barcelona.
