Reshaping spaces to meet the expectations of a new generation of professionals: a new conception of workspaces was the central theme of the eleventh edition of the NABA Design Marathon. From 8 to April 10, 42 students from the Design Area answered the call of NABA and YouniteStars by developing revolutionary layouts.

Designing workspaces: the challenge, the winners, the special mentions

The challenge set for the ten participating teams was to rethink the spaces on the first floor of a 6.000 square metre building in the Certosa area of Milan; a place for companies, professionals and creative people. Guided by mentors Meital Cohen and Luca Macri (both NABA Lecturers), students developed their concepts, responding to the need to transform external areas and interiors.

At the end of a 48-hour work session, "Nucleo" was awarded as the best project of this edition. Nayeli Celeste Facio Santiago, Simona Blagojevic, Chiayun Lee and Maria Moldoveanu redesigned the space as a gravitational centre of talents and people living in the area. The layout of the first floor resembles a "Piazza 2.0". BA in Design and MA in Interior Design students have designed a layout on the idea of "Piazza 2.0", where everyone exchanges information, builds relationships and creates innovation.

Special mentions went to "Off The Grid" and "24h by Amma". Roberta Petrelli, Flavio Serpino, Achille Meyvis and Anastasia Ivaylova Radneva (BA in Design and MA in Interior Design) worked on the former project. They interpreted Milan’s innovation centre as a place to "escape from digital networking", create meaningful relationships and give people a reason to return to physical workspaces. "24h by Amma" is the project by Mariapia Colavin, Matilde Nera, Albjon Shkrepi and Andrea Labanca (BA in Design students). Here, the workspace constantly changes from private to public, adapting to different functions and routines. Fluidity is its main character - a distinctive feature of contemporary society, young creatives and emerging entrepreneurs.
