On the occasion of the third evolution of the Timeline dedicated to the history of sustainability, the Museo Novecento in Florence, MC A – Mario Cucinella Architects and SOS – School of Sustainability present: SOS Call for Ideas – Sustainable Thinking Evolution Day, Powered by PechaKucha.
The Wall is a site specific exhibition format conceived by Sergio Risaliti, director of the Museo Novecento, which proposes the synthesis and visual processing typical of the infographic developed along a 12-meter wall. The Wall: Sustainable Thinking Evolution, curated by MC A and SOS, focuses on the theme of sustainability and is part of the Sustainable Thinking event organized by the Ferragamo Museum and the Ferragamo Foundation to pay attention to the increasingly topical issues of sustainability in the most diverse forms: from the environment to the urban landscape, from reuse to innovation and technological experimentation.
SOS Call for Ideas is open until midnight on 16 October 2019 and is reserved for young professionals under 30, recent graduates and undergraduates as of 30 July 2020, of all disciplines. MC A, SOS and Museo Novecento have the objective of involving brilliant young people to try to give innovative answers to the challenges that await us in the future by developing concepts that contribute to the achievement of one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda 2030. The Call will allow participants to make known their idea to “leading companies in the sustainability sector” invited, together with the architect Mario Cucinella, the director of the Museo Novecento Sergio Risaliti and the director of SOS Massimo Imparato, to select the inspirational documents sent during the first phase selection and to evaluate the final presentations decreeing the winners.
What is PechaKucha?
It is a method of lightning talk, the peculiarity of PechaKucha is its light presentation format (20 × 20), which provides for the exposure of only 20 slides in 20 seconds each. That is, 6 minutes and 40 seconds of total time. In a first phase, choosing between four themes: “Water is the new oil”, “Humanity as an urban species”, “After plastic, what?”, “The impact of digital on public space”, the candidates are invited to formulate possible solutions, necessarily unprecedented ones, without limits in terms of approach and scale, from wide-ranging strategies to innovative yet limited ideas. Following a selection of the papers, on 23 October 2019 the Finalists will be communicated and invited to present their proposal during the Sustainable Thinking Evolution Day, Powered by PechaKucha on 6 November 2019 which will take place at the Museo Novecento in Florence.
The winners of the 4 themes and the PechaKucha Winner will see their concepts included in the third evolution of The Wall: Sustainable Thinking Evolution, on display at the Museo Novecento in Florence from 20 November 2019 to 27 January 2020. Up for grabs for the Winner of the Sustainable Thinking Evolution Day, Powered by PechaKucha, a full scholarship for SOS7 (academic year 2020/2021) and for the 2nd and 3rd place an internship at one of the “leading companies in the sustainability sector” involved.
