project activation

HeritACT, a European Union-funded project, was activated on January 11, 2024, an initiative to connect the past and future of cities by activating cultural and historical heritage with participatory experiences and innovative design to facilitate sustainable urban development.

Stefano Boeri Architetti’s Research Department will develop, in collaboration with UoP, an innovative framework for the co-production of highly innovative public space installations and will be the partner responsible for the implementation roadmap of the pilot project.

HeritACT are the common actions to create more sustainable and equitable lifestyles in creative and inclusive settings. Within the New European Bauhaus macro-field, 15 partners in 5 European countries will collaborate together for 3 years. The goal i11s to integrate 9 solutions and 7 digital tools that promote inclusive and sustainable cultural-historical heritage in 3 pilot cities in Europe.

The pilot cities – Milan (Italy), Ballina (Ireland) and Elefsina (Greece)-will become living laboratories for urban transformation. Leveraging the synergy between innovative architectural design and cultural practices. HeritACT aims to facilitate harmonious and balanced urban development that respects its history and culture.

In Elefsina, the initiative aims to engage neighborhoods in cultural and urban planning initiatives, focusing on inclusion through innovative and sustainable design actions.

In Ballina, the project explores the potential of institutional buildings as diffuse centers supporting the European Green Deal and the New European Bauhaus in Irish cities.

In Milan, on the other hand, the project focuses on farmsteads as historical and cultural heritage and their enhancement through nature-based solutions (NBS) and participatory design installations.
