A free urban campsite for design students under 30: this is how the Milanese school imagines transforming the difficulty in finding accommodation in Milan into a constructive and unprecedented opportunity.

For the first time a design school responds with a project to the difficulty of accommodation in Milan - especially at affordable prices - during the Design Week: IED imagines an urban camping at the "Enrico Cappelli Savorelli" sports center, which will host design students free of charge under 30 coming to town, The Glitch Camp.

The Glitch Camp is going to be a urban camp that will ensure that as many international young people as possible can visit the city this week, during which the Salone del Mobile takes place. The intention is to democratise the creative and relational heritage that comes to life in Milan every year over the course of these days, which constitute the most stimulating and multifaceted period dedicated to Design on an international level. 

The glitch is the disruption, the error, the bug from which an unexpected benefit can emerge, the anomaly that generates an opportunity. The Glitch Camp is, therefore, the opportunity that emerges from the complexities of receptivity, identifies an advantage in disadvantage, and the opportunities for socialisation and growth that result. The Glitch Camp is in line with IED S.p.A.'s transformation into a Benefit Company and its renewed educational approach that increasingly places the concept of the common good and design as a tool to achieve this at the heart of its mission. DesignxCommons focuses specifically on the role of design as a transformative platform through which to look after the world, formulate questions and identify answers to emerging needs, applying design to the regeneration, integration and sharing of the common good.

The campsite will be set up to accommodate up to 100 young people per night free of charge. The guests will be allowed to use the facilities and common areas at the Sports Centre, managed by Milanosport S.p.A.. Via a platform - that will be soon online on the IED’s website - it will be possible to submit a request for overnight accommodation for up to two nights and subject to availability.
