Summer School Thinking City
Stadionplein 22, 1076 CM Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Sustainable, liveable and socially just cities can no longer be created with a mono-disciplinary approach. Holistic, interdisciplinary ways of working are crucial. During the Summer School we will work on the generation of innovative solutions for urban issues, while simultaneously testing new working methods. In interdisciplinary groups both students and young professionals will explore models of cooperative planning. The groups will work on case studies that are Amsterdam based and topical. A coalition of diverse actors in the city - citizens, companies and local government - will act as client and conversation partner. As a result of the program, each studio will create a narrative about the future of Amsterdam - a narrative that will inspire the city and will mobilise it for further action.
