Frame Workshop

FRAME is a proposal for a public space
FRAME is a proposal for a public space, a geometric design that regenerates a neighborhood and stimulates the collective imagination. 

FRAME is a workshop within Piazze Aperte
, the tactical urbanism program promoted by the Municipality of Milan and developed by AMAT – Agenzia Mobilità Ambiente Territorio. Piazze Aperte is created in collaboration with Bloomberg Associates and the Global Designing Cities Initiative; co-financed by the European Union through EIT Urban Mobility (a body of EIT – European Institute of Innovation and Technology) within “CLEAR” project.

FRAME is in Pratocentenaro
, an old district that has radically changed its apparence since the Second World War: few buildings from the early 1900s rise inbetween the ones generated by the economic boom that had erased the image of the small village. Today the district identifies as its center the crossroad named Largo San Dionigi. Pratocentenaro is missing a square.

FRAME is a process of collective realization
 that engages all citizens, an inclusive and transversal workshop for all ages and backgrounds.

FRAME is activation
, the transformation of the city and the creation of a public space usually pass through a phase of closure to public, the workshop aims at reducing the gap between citizens and the space in progress thanks to the practice of the open construction site. The process allows organizers and participants to constantly access the square, creating the opportunity for convivial moments, sharing and discussion. 

FRAME is a practical workshop
, where participants will be guided in the process of creating the square, thanks to the tutoring of experienced staff in the construction of large drawings on the ground.
