Open Design School
Matera 2019 Capital of Culture

Gakutoshi Kojima project proposal for an outdoor temporary theatre system in Matera - 1974.

Open Design School is a pillar project from Matera 2019 Capital of Culture.
The Open Design School is not a school. It will serve as an instrument of systemic, community-wide capacity building where learning occurs through doing, prototyping and testing, in a continuous creative exchange process between art, science, and technology.

It is a horizontal platform, a place of interdisciplinary learning and experimentation without strict hierarchies in which everyone learns from everyone, in an atmosphere of mutual enrichment.
