Summer course:
Architecture, Exploration and Reflection
Summer Term 2022
7,5 Credits

This 7,5 Credits course is aimed towards those who study, or have previously studied, architecture at university level and wish to immerse themselves in a workshop during the summer term.

The course offers the opportunity for architecture students to immerse themselves in a site-specific architectural issue. Within the course, we explore which role architecture can have in relation to social and environmental aspects. Critical reflection and evaluation of the own work process and its outcomes are important aspects of the course.

In the course, participants will take part in a theme-based workshop. The workshops that are offered and in which places these are given can vary from year to year that the course is offered. Each workshop has a limited number of students which can participate and there is no guarantee that applicants to the course will get their first-hand workshop choice.
