ACC Lectures 2023 | 6. Alessio Battistella – PoliMi | 13.04.2023

Selected readings:


Low tech as a form of resistance

The theoretical framework within which the lecture develops is that of “Appropriate Technologies”, i.e., those technologies that respond effectively in terms of implementation and maintenance to the cultural, social, economic and technological context in which they are employed. The best response to a technical problem is not necessarily the most technologically advanced, but in fact the one that is most adaptable to the context, capable of increasing the autonomy of the context itself.
