Workshop goals
The “New Farms for Expo” workshop aims to develop a toolbox for the reuse of vacant buildings in industrialized cities. The research will focus on the local context provided by municipal farmhouses, which are now often left vacant or underused: our task is to reimagine and design specific re-activation strategies. NG is inviting architects, planners and policy-makers, together with agronomists, economists and urban scientists to form a multidisciplinary team. This think tank will  address this theme by imagining solutions that redefine the urban role of this vacant buildings, and by providing and prioritizing space for social, cultural and technological experimentations through citizen initiatives or entrepreneurial endeavour.

Workshop structure
The workshop will last a week, during which numerous multidisciplinary confrontations will be paired with a rigorous production schedule. Participants will be divided into three working groups, whose task will be to develop investigative approaches and proposals on three main topics: (1) Building Metabolic Networks through Technologies; (2) New Brand and Storytelling; (3) New Economies.

Collateral events
Participants to the workshop will also have the opportunity to take part in three international symposia focusing on the themes of the workshop, and to participate in guide visits to municipal farms and interesting urban reactivation case studies in the Milanese territory.
