Research and fabrication workshop
With the Manifesta12 biennale, the Planetary Garden, the workshop is organised by HydroCity in partnership with CODESIGNLAB, the Polytechnic University of Palermo, and the Gerphau in Paris. The workshop will gather a group of fifteen students and professionals for a period of 10 days to work on the city of Palermo through its 10th century abandoned qanat water network. How can questions of heritage, infrastructure, and natural resources generate urban renewal in a juxtaposition of scales? The workshop will produce a collective publication in print and an in-situ installation that will serve to re-use and reveal the invisible network.

Directed by Sara Kamalvand, Paolo Cascone, Chris Younès 
Institutional partners: Manifesta12 + University of Palermo
Design & fabrication partner: CODESIGNLAB
Research partner: Gerphau lab

The workshop will oscillate at the intersection of research and fabrication. Urban explorations and investigations, brainstorming sessions, talks, projections, mapping and drawing will constitute a daily journal that will resume in a collective publication in print. A fabrication project will be juxtaposed as an in-situ installation and temporary garden that will reveal the invisible and forgotten water network for the time of the Manifesta biennale.
