Designers & Duomos: MFA Field Study in Italy
During the Fall of 2014 the MFA in Design Department conducted a field trip to Italy. The first destination was Venice, where they visited pavilions and events affiliated with the Architectural Biennale, including the Korean pavilion in the Giardini, where MFA faculty member Marco Bruno was exhibiting work. Their stay in Venice was followed by a four-day workshop at the Fornace Carena near Turin, where the students and faculty had an opportunity to learn more about the brick-making process, and muck about in clay. The trip concluded with a visit to the Maker Faire in Rome, where the group had a chance to engage with various useful and spurious fabrication and "making"-related technologies (from Arduino boards to 3D Printers).
