9788836620517: Low Cost Design Volume 2

Low Cost Design is based on the principle that the most innovative design ideas are not necessarily the ones passing through the patent offices, architectural and design studios or the computers of multinational companies; on the contrary, they are often born from some simple everyday solutions and the brilliant flash of a practical mind. Functioning as a visual dictionary of everyday ingenuity and self-sufficiency, and spanning Northern Europe and the southern Mediterranean, this second volume of Low Cost Design catalogues further inspiring examples of the creative repurposing of detritus, and of overlooked land, by ordinary people--whether for reasons of subsistence, politics or sheer artistry. As in the first volume, the various innovations are classified as either “objects” or “actions.” Together they form a fascinating sociological, urban and ethnographical panorama of contemporary knowhow.

Book Description Italy: Silvana, 2011. Brossura. Book Condition: nuovo. Dopo il grande successo editoriale di Low Cost Design, Daniele Pario Perra prosegue, in questo nuovo volume, la sua originale ricognizione nel cosiddetto “design spontaneo”, documentando le geniali soluzioni che anonimi progettisti hanno messo in atto per risolvere i casi offerti dalla vita di tutti i giorni. Nelle pagine del volume sono dunque presentati centinaia di esempi di creatività non convenzionale: un riuso, o meglio, un uso mutato, illuminato e illuminante non solo di oggetti ma anche di azioni e di pratiche progettuali in grado di modificare l’uso del territorio, che rilevano consuetudini innovative e grande immaginazione. Le idee presentate sono classificate –come nel primo volume – secondo diversi piani di lettura, ovvero 5 differenti livelli di progettazione per gli oggetti e 6 categorie per le azioni. Le immagini sono introdotte da un testo dell’autore e da una serie di capitoli scritti in forma di blog a due mani con diversi autori su temi che spaziano dalla storia dell’oggetto all’estetica del design, dalla creatività alimentare all’artigianato, dalle tribù urbane alla cultura e pianificazione del territorio, offrendo non solo importanti spunti di riflessione sulla tematica affrontata, ma componendo un quadro di grande interesse sotto il profilo sociologico, urbanistico ed etnografico contemporaneo. Contributi di: Lucia Babina, Pierfrancesco Frillici, Emiliano Gandolfi, Christina Kreps, Francesco Morace, Renzo di Renzo, Luca Villa. (T-CA) Autore/i a cura di Daniele Pario Perra Editore Silvana Editoriale Luogo Milano Anno 2011 Pagine 216 Misura 22x28 (cm) Illustrazioni 300 ill. a colori - 300 color ills Legatura brossura olandese - paperback Conservazione nuovo - new Lingua italiano/inglese - Italian/English.
