International Workshop in Naya Raipur
This event, which is a part of the EAST project and co-financed by the European Commission, was hosted by the NRDA, Naya Raipur Development Authority. It ended with an international Jury which identified relevant ideas among the different projects, all of high quality. The workshop has been organized following different themes that arose from the spaces of interaction between things in India: between buildings and the street, between people, functions, cultures, between the urban and the rural speeds and ways of life.
Following the methodology developed by Les Ateliers, each workshop ends with the presentation by the three multidisciplinary teams of participants in front of a “jury”. The members of the jury were chosen by Naya Raipur Development Authority, ENTP (as EAST lead partner) and Les Ateliers. Their mission is not to classify the teams’ proposals, but to identify the most relevant ideas and elements of all the projects and indicate the ones which could/should be considered for implementation by the local authorities. Therefore, the jury takes part in the process of collective production and could be considered the 4th team of the workshop.
