This intensive study programme (IP) will investigate the potential of architectural interventions as catalyst for future urban transformation and renewal – with a focus on the specific needs of cities without growth in the region of Central Europe. By doing so, we will investigate the impact and influence of architecture, as physical artifacts, on the urban structure. Using the method „research by design“ we will develop and test possible instruments in varying scales.
The IP is organized as an interdisciplinary design project with an intensive working week in Venice. The working weeks will take place in May 2013.
Deadline for your initial application is Wednesday the 13th of February. For more information on

The IP Future Cities will be organised as an intensive course programme – bringing together students from different fields (Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Sociology, Urban Design) who study in the 3rd year of the Bachelors Program or in the Masters Program.
Programme Partners are:
- Technical University Graz, Institute of Architectural Technology, Prof Roger Riewe
- Univerza v Ljubljani, Fakulteta za arhitekturo, Prof Tadej Glažar, Prof Jurij Sadar
- Università Iuav di Venezia, Faculty of Architecture, Department of Project Cultures, Adjunct Professor Enrico Anguillari
- Technische Universität Berlin, School of Architecture, ADIP, Dean of Studies Birgit Klauck, Prof Boštjan Vuga
Technische Universität Berlin: Eligible for students of the disciplines Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Sociology, Urban Design, Interaction Design, Building History. The selection will be orientated on the student’s motivation (ascertained in an interview) and their progress within their study curricullum.
- Level of study Bachelor 3rd year or higher
- Motivation letter
- Sample work
- Language skills – English and/or Italian
Main focus of the selection of the student team will be interdisciplinarity. In Berlin 50% of all places will preferentially be given to students who take part in the Master or Bachelor design studio of ADIP.
Please not: the program is accessible also for PhD students.
The program is supported by the DAAD and funded with support from the European Commission. Students will receive a reimbursement for their travel expenses up to the maximum daily allowance of the DAAD.
Technische Universität Berlin – ADIP offers the IP as regular part of their design studios. For BA students module 1.1.5 Entwerfen (12 ECTS); for MA students Arch_M_E_01/ Arch_M_E_03 (12 ECTS); for MA Urban Design students P1 (12 ECTS).
Students who are involved in the entire organization including post-processing will be awarded additional ECTS.
ASSESSMENT OF THE LEARNING OUTCOMES
The participants have to provide reports of the IP which will be rated and discussed with the students. All participating students will achieve 6 ECTS minimum with the IP.
Starting with an analysis and finalizing the project with an elaborate design proposal, Berlin students will accumulate 12 ECTS. For the two working weeks (including preparation and postprocessing) only 6 credit points will be awarded. The recognition may differ at the partner universities. At the Technische Universität Berlin the project will be comprised in the regular curriculum of the Bachelor and Master in Architecture as one of 5 / 3 design modules. For students in related fields it will count as one or two of the elective seminars.
