MODERN WORLD (RE)VISIONS: LIVABLE URBAN MODERNITY
The 2022 International Summer School invites participants from architectural, urban planning and other creative practices to analyse and decode an existing cityscape to develop new visions of future modern living.
The International Summer School is planned to take place from 27th June to 1st of July, 2022. Organized by Kaunas University of Technology in collaboration with The Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL, UK), it is part of Kaunas – European Capital of Culture 2022 “Modernism for the Future” programme and builds on previous Summer Schools organized in 2018, 2019, 2021.
We are living in a time of crisis. Experiences over recent months have forced us to critically and profoundly re-evaluate our relationships with our friends, families and communities, our neighbourhoods, our cities and our planet. Focussing on the historic district of Šančiai, the five-day Summer School will provide participants with an international and multidisciplinary setting for exploring current debates, challenges and opportunities in architecture design and urbanism for modern, healthy and safe living in the city. Activities will include, neighbhourhood walks and talks, site visits, lectures and a short studio-based exercise resulting in the production of a collaborative, co-curated, creative output.
Registration until – 1th of June
Invitation to selected participants – 3th of June
