an interdisciplinary approach where architecture and design interact with visual arts and technologies.

The SYDERE_ARTS Lab places contemporary experimentation and innovation at the heart of it’s actions through an interdisciplinary approach where architecture and design interact with visual arts and technologies.
The Politecnico, cultural companies, Regions and the Regional agencies in charge, will be able to lean on the Lab in SYDERE_ARTS to find solutions for case studies on the valorisation of territories or to design paths between territories, or to design the valorisation of a relevant collection, and these solutions will allow the Regions and Regional Agencies to precipitate the PNRR financial resources on the territories of reference.
