Best Summer Courses in Architecture Studies in Europe 2019. About the course:

In our one-week course, we critically and playfully explore public space not only as a "generosity" that architecture can offer to society but also as a political, social and deeply urban condition. Public space is not simply found or even designed, it is lived and made; in a nutshell, public space is emancipatory. For such reflections, we use both the Biennale exhibitions and the city of Venice as our field sites.

In a diverse set of lectures, hands-on workshops, discussions, and tours with local and international experts we will enquire into the conditions - potentials and restrictions - that make public space possible for different groups of people in Venice, but also in cities in general. ... [-]

The main goal of the Architecture & Design Global Career Summer Program is to cover a wide range of architecture- and design-related subjects usually absent from the syllabus or studied only theoretically, but that will be essential to the students in the real world.

Architecture, Design, Land Development, Real Estate

Initially, a young architect’s work is performed under the leadership of senior architects. As junior architects progress in their careers, they become the leaders on various projects themselves. The ECCEDU program is oriented towards preparing students for their future careers and to become leaders within their profession. The unique ECCEDU Architecture & Design program of lectures is designed on that basis, and includes element from rela estate and land development. The three parts of the curriculum (the lectures, the internship program, and the design assignment) will give students more confidence and a much better understanding of the business world of architecture, design, planning, real estate, land development, and construction....

»BUILD YOUR BAUHAUS«

EXPERIENCE THE BAUHAUS-IDEA AND LEARN MORE ABOUT THE INFLUENCE OF THE BAUHAUS ON OUR LIFE!

The Bauhaus was a school, not a design studio. Walter Gropius wanted to educate a new generation of designers, which is why he wanted his pupils to learn a craft and to work in the workshops. He encouraged them to gain hands-on experience in the workshops. Those experiences seemed to him to be the best way of finding the design for a new century. The objects were not bestsellers from the beginning, but rather stations on the road to something new.

We will follow the advice of Gropius and the traces of the Bauhaus in our workshop. We will start in the museums with the drafts and products of the Bauhaus pupils and end up in the wood workshop, where we will bring our projects to life.... [-]

»ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN«

EXPLORE DESIGN STRATEGIES AND ARTISTIC APPROACHES IN ARCHITECTURE!

The course »Architectural Design« explores architectural concepts through class presentations, on-site visits, and studio practice. Each class examines particular building types, design principles and methodologies, leading to practical design techniques. In daily tasks, spatial strategies will be applied in artistic ways.

Design principles such as Open Plan, Inner courtyard, Shifting Storeys and Mass and Space will be explored, and applied in architectural model making and sculpturing by using a variety of materials. Examples of contemporary European architecture will be discussed and visited in this course. Various spatial strategies will be explored in practical tasks and lead to the final design project of the course: an Art Museum in Weimar.... [-]

»BAUHAUS IN.SIGHT«

PERCEIVE, ANALYSE, EXPERIMENT AND: CREATE!

Points, lines and areas as a starting point of the bauhaus foundation course create in their interplay space arrangements. In combination with material, textures, light or colour they evolve into characteristic places.

We start with dot, line and composition in two-dimensional exercises. These experiences will be transferred into the three-dimensional area and expanded with materiality, light and colour. In the alternating process of perception, analysis, experiment and creation, basic rules of design and specified architectural space design will be derived. The visual and haptic cognition is the source for the design of several architectural models.... [-]

»UNDERSTANDING SPACES«

CREATIVE WAYS OF EXPLORING SPACES FOR INNOVATIVE AND SITE-SPECIFIC DESIGN IDEAS

The course "Understanding Spaces" explores multiple, hands-on, innovative artistic approaches to increase perceptual sensibility and develop a deepened grasp of the particularity of place. Discourses from the visual arts, architecture and aesthetics are applied to generate a better understanding of the diversity of spaces. The course closely links theory and practice through lectures, seminars, field trips through various shaped landscapes, and individual projects.

Methods are introduced to capture spatial moods and to express them through artistic techniques. Based on the analysis of the places selected, students develop two artistic or architectural projects. Special features of this course are field trips in Thuringia to experience particular original natural landscapes.... [-]

DISCOVER URBAN SPACE PERFORMATIVE AND PERCEPTION ORIENTED

Throughout the course you will explore current issues of urban, community life by use of artistic interventions and performances in the city of Weimar. You will deal with decisions of regional and urban planning in a performative way on site, on the basis of our own physical perception. Starting points are urban everyday activities such as walking, standing and sitting, which shape urban space and constitute it as a living space first. Using methods of artistic field research (notes from memory, drawings, audio recordings, interviews, etc.) and one's own body perception, you will examine the city of Weimar to make use of the results afterwards for artistic actions and interventions or urban planning....

»CULTURAL LANDSCAPES & URBAN RESILIENCE«

LEARN MAN-MADE AND NATURAL FACTORS' INFLUENCE ON THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT AND DEVELOP RESPONSIVE PLANNING SCHEMES FOR MORE RESILIENT CITIES.

Urban Resilience relying on the robustness and preparedness of our built environment and society to its vulnerability is often hard to catch when it comes to its integration and realisation in the day to day realities. Disciplines related to spatial development are more and more asked to respond to these requirements to adapt to unexpected occurrences of natural hazards (earthquakes, floods) and to become reactive in the built space.

Next to the building related knowledge about vulnerability and preventive or adaptive measures among architects and engineers the process and acceptance of it is dependant on cultural values as well. The overarching topic of urban resilience, therefore, can be treated with a transcultural perspective, as a cultural landscape understood as an environment that is created by humans in relation to their natural surroundings with today’s expectations to construct resilient structures and communities. The process of change that forms the cultural landscapes for urban resilience requires an interdisciplinary approach that is taking into account diverse aspects of building schemes and planning processes....

Overview

The Oxford Architecture Programme will introduce aspiring architects to key concepts and theories, whilst at the same time providing an insight into what future study or a career in architecture will entail. This architecture summer course is two weeks in duration and takes place in the architecturally fascinating city of Oxford. ORA also offers this course in London. For students aged 13-15, ORA offers an Introduction to Architecture course.

Academic Content

With ORA’s Oxford Architecture Programme, students will learn the principles of design, mapping, spatial planning and analysis essential to portfolio development. They will also be introduced to the basic concepts of construction and engineering that will underpin their future careers in and studies of architecture. On this dedicated architecture summer programme in Oxford, students will consider the modern role of the architect and space in our built environment, honing the key spatial thinking and verbal communication skills required for the creation and planning of all aspects of building design projects. Students will also develop the practical and technical skills essential for project design, as this course aims to introduce students to architectural drawing and model construction in manual and digital formats. These skills will then be put to the test in a final group-based design portfolio competition, allowing students to pair their theoretical and technical understanding with team-oriented skills developed over the programme. Students should have a keen interest in and will have ideally studied Mathematics, Physics and/or Art and Design, but advanced knowledge is not required. The... [-]

Overview

Changes in urban landscapes carry with them conflicting interpretations of the past and conflicting desires for the future. After the devastation of WW2, the creation of a new social and political order shaped the reconstruction of the cities: new buildings, street names and commemorative monuments told a specific version of the past and offered a vision for future transformation. The fall of communist regimes was also written in the fabric of the city: new glassy skyscrapers now compete with postwar architectures, while new monuments and landmarks offer competing (and often contradictory) interpretations of the past. In this course we will ask many questions about what a city is and how it functions. Who are the main actors in the shaping and reshaping of a city? How can historical preservation and economic development be balanced? How can competing interpretations coexist? What is the relationship between urban changes and broader social, cultural, and political transformation? This course includes travel to Wroclaw, Krakow, and Berlin.... [-]
