DensityDesign Open Presentations 2022

We are happy to invite you to the Open Presentations of the Final Synthesis Design Studio at Politecnico di Milano, “Mediazioni Algoritmiche. Designing in a data-intensive society”.

The Open Presentations will close with the opening of the exhibition of all group projects, along with the exhibition of Infopoems: a collection of design artefacts with a “poetic” approach to data, which reconciles the description of a phenomenon with the experience we have about it.
