The ASP group developed their activity working in parallel with the S [m2] art research project, winner of the MIUR Smart Cities and Social Innovation tender (SCN_00325). In particular, starting from the same concept of S [m2] art, they had the task of designing some alternative proposals, even more innovative. The member group belongs to the architecture and design field, except for Atanasovska Martina – urban planner – and Delvino Michele – management engineer.
At the very beginning phase of their activity, the ASP Team members collaborated in a brainstorming activity, with the same role, but, of course, contributing on the basis of their specific study background. Also in the second phase, when they were divided into 3 groups of 2 students each and detailed 3 scenarios of “smart meter square”, they had the same “role” of designer, with the exception of Delvino Michele, a management engineer who started a transversal activity, supporting the 3 groups in the service-design activity, on the basis of his specific skills.
After the discussion with the research and business partners (Telecom Italia and ThemaProgetti Group), one of the 3 scenarios were chosen as the most innovative and interesting for the further investigation in the field of smart urban furniture: the food storage, delivery and distribution, talking in account of all related social innovation issues.
In order to develop the concept in a more detailed project, the students took part in an international workshop in Food Design, hosted during the Italian Design Day by the East China Normal University February 27th to March 5th 2017. The workshop gave ASP team the opportunity to dialogue with the multidisciplinary student of the Master in Food, in a design workshop in Shanghai, based on the smart meter square concept.
