Delft Scenarios: Design Studio in the Netherlands
Dates TBD - Applications will be accepted for the 2015 summer program once dates have been established!
Delft Scenarios is a case study based on research and design program in which the municipality of Delft provides a concrete and current 'situation' in need of intelligent intervention. In close collaboration with actual stakeholders and the University of Leiden (governance), 'design thinking' and 'scenario planning' techniques will be applied and developed to generate serious proposals related to the assignment and current economic, political, social and spatial context. The outcome of Delft Scenarios will be actual, robust architectural design proposals.
The situational focus of the 2013 studio project will be as part of a European-wide series of cities that have universities on the subject of collaboration and integration of municipality and university (spatially, social, pro grammatical, etc.).
