This workshop will take up the “Scuola del non-sapere” (see civic-city.org) approach of placing what we don’t know, rather than our certainties, at the centre of our reflections and projects. We will therefore have to agree to unlearn to better address the issue of the presence of terracotta in the city of tomorrow. Starting from the needs of our anthropocene planet, from ecological, social, participatory, cultural considerations, we must rethink our living together in urban space. We will take ancestral material and techniques from world cultures as a conceptual tool to think about this future. We will reconsider habits to confront real needs. We will draw, we will project, we will question, we will prototype for another world, we will go from detail to utopia, from the porcelain spoon to the clay city…
