Designed by B2 Architecture, their first prize winning design for the Instant House @ School Competition is an oasis for children that breaks down the rigorosity with the help of organic and playful shapes. Located in a strictly orthogonal urban context, in the street of Via Ugo Betti in Milan, the building and its surroundings will create a bridge between the neighborhood and the children by orienting itself to the main directions of the site.

Taking place August 28-September 6, the University of Genoa’s San Rocco Summer School (SRSS) will teach you to design buildings by making drawings, copying precedents and talking about corner solutions. Each teacher, who is a member of the San Rocco editorial board, and some friends and colleagues, will participate for two days, taking over the work developed by the colleagues that preceded him in the days before. It is the students who will provide the SRSS with consistency, being the only constant. The building to be designed is the new mosque of Genoa. Applications must be submitted no later than 12:00 on June 10. For more information, please visit here.
