Architecture, Exploration and Reflection

7,5 Credits, Bachelor's level, Summer Term 2020

This summer course offers the opportunity for architecture students to immerse in a process-oriented project work and to explore a site-specific architectural issue. Within the course, we explore which role architecture can have in relation to social and environmental aspects in society. Critical reflection and evaluation of the own work process and the results are important aspects of the course.

International workshops

Within the course, you will participate in an international workshop together with other students. The workshops offered in connection to the course will be held at different locations around the world. From the five presented workshops you will be asked to choose a first-, second- and third hand choice and the three workshops with the most applicants will be implemented. To provide one free alterative, the workshop in Trysunda will be one of those three. Other workshops might require students to arrange and pay for their own accomodation, travel costs, food expenses and other costs. 

You will do some individual work before and/or after the workshops. The course is assessed through submission of visual material, documentation of the work process and an individual written report.
