beyond media festival


The 2009 edition of the BEYOND MEDIA festival includes two exhibitions: SPOT ON SCHOOLS, an exploration, on an international basis, of state-of-the-art and cutting edge researches on the influence of the new media on the discipline of architecture; and URBAN VISIONS, an exhibition dedicated to projects of urban transformation which stand out not only for their architectural qualities, but also for the effectiveness and the pertinence of the forms of communication that have been used in order to present them to their audiences.

The third edition of the SPOT ON SCHOOLS exhibition, curated by Paola Giaconia, involves some twenty architecture and design schools which in the world distinguish themselves for their research and experimentation in the field of new media of communication. The invited schools will tell, through the experience of the students and of the instructors, how the new technologies influence the various phases of a design, starting from the very act of creative conception.

Among participating schools are: Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece; Asia University, Taiwan; Ball State University, USA; California Polytechnic State University, Pomona, USA; Clemson University, USA; École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne EPFL, ENAC School, Switzerland; Facoltà di Architettura di Pescara, Italy; NABA, Italy; Politecnico di Torino, Italy; Rhode Island School of Design, USA; RMIT University, Australia; SCI-Arc, USA; Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, USA; Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, Portugal; Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC), Spain; University of Calgary, Canada; University of Florida, USA; University of Hong Kong; University of Thessaly, Greece.
