Summer School Rurapolis 2024

Under the supervision of Salomé Wackernagel, doctoral student at LéaV

After a first edition in Navarre, Spain, the Summer School Rurapolis comes back, this time in the multifaceted region of Asturias. It will take place over ten days from the 29th of August to the 7th of September 2024 and will be structured around a series of lectures at the LABoral Art Center in Gijón with well-known personalities at European level, and a prospective explorations of the territory where the students will be sent on different paths in order to discover on their own way the multiple post-industrial, peri-rural and natural landscapes of Asturias. Then, small architectures/artefacts/totems made of raw earth and mixed techniques will be developed on a former mining site in a remote village of the Valle de Turón in the centre of Asturias. The training will be carried out by a team of architects and raw earth experts. At the end of the stay, the collectively designed architectural objects will host a cultural and festive event, making the reactivation of neglected rural and post-industrial installations on this territory possible and attractive.
