UK Sponsored: Delft Scenarios: Design Studio in the Netherlands (Design)

June 1-July 24, 2015
 
DelftProgram Overview

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 2015 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.).
