APSS Porto Montenegro
Is it a pop-up, a folie, an installation? Does it have a function? What is it made of? Does it challenge technology? What is the methodology? How long will it stay?
APSS is a summer school of architecture located in Boka Bay, Montenegro, For six years now it has been acting as a platform for architecture, urbanism, informal education with studies and research that have lead to more projects such as Montenegro Pavilion at Venice Biennale in 2104 and 2016 that has originated from APSS work. After our Re-Use series in APSS, we have continued our journey with the topic of TEMPORARY in architecture, this year extended to CROSSING TEMPORARY.
Last year inside the city walls of UNESCO site and within the vicinity of Old Austrian Prison - the mothership of APSS broke up with the permanence and talked about its significance in architecture. The results of the workshop were amazing installations done by students mentored by Numen/For Use. This year we move to an amazing Porto Montenegro with an expanded topic.
Temporary structures might be designed to disappear shortly, might have to be set-up quickly and just host an event but they do become part of the public space, part of community. They should challenge new ideas, test new possibilities and new approach to public space use, embrace the environment and adapt to the surrounding.
This year we add the issue of Mobility and explore our topic CROSSING TEMPORARY. Mobility is one of the greatest challenges not only here in Montenegro but also in many parts of the world today. Boka Bay is a perfect spot for discussing problems and testing some of the solutions on mobility. Through our workshop, lectures and panels we want to experiment and test new scenarios in our cities. We want to challenge interaction and see the position of the city within a different mobility network engaging water transport, sustainable solutions and scenarios that benefit visitors and tourist as much as locals.
