Monte Carasso Summer School 2006

Matthew attended the Monte Carasso Summer School, held annually in a small town in Switzerland. Luigi Snozzi’s long term engagement in the town has led to an alternative approach to the small town, based on the rethinking of zonal planning strategies in favour of a place specific approach where projects are located according to need and impact.

A family housing scheme on the edge of the town was designed as part of the seminar. Attending the Monte Carasso Summer School gave an insight into the approach and methods of Snozzi and allowed the identification offour themes in his work that could be transferred to UK market towns.
