From 1999, Villard ìs an architectural traveling seminar happening each year that sees, in collaboration with other cultura! institutions, selected ltalians and toreìgn schools of architecture. The aim of the seminar is to design in a specific area proposed by public administrations. For this reason the seminar is strictly relateci to the complexity of each specific territory. The design area will be presented at the beginning of the seminar. Participants can work on the design area during the year, developing their projects step by step through the seminar meeting. Travel is the most important activity of the seminar, a tool to understand cities.
