AA nanotourism Visiting School, BIO 50 - Biennial of Design in Ljubljana, 2014, TU Vienna, Institute of Architecture, Department of Building Theory by Design


The concept of nanotourism stands in critical and creative opposition to the ecological, economic, and social effects of dominant mass tourism. It’s defined as a location-specific,

participative, and locally oriented bottom-up alternative that motivates exchange between providers and travelers through co-creative approaches and knowledge transfer. The exhibition showed various forms of this kind of tourism, which international designers, architects, and institutions, inspired by the AA nanotourism Visiting School and BIO – Biennial of Design in Ljubljana, have initiated since 2014.
