An International Workshop on the City
3 – 9 October 2014, Berlin, Germany
Architects, researchers, artists, a DJ, a social scientist and a journalist, are the international team of tutors leading the Berlin unlimited workshop. Focusing on Berlin’s actual problematics, the workshop is an interdisciplinary exercise in understanding the urban condition. Each of the 5 units of the workshop focuses on a different methodological approach of urban investigation and is framed by a set of themes, particular to Berlin, to be explored.
Urban explorations, on-site visits, and group work, form the key pedagogical elements in each unit, conducted by a team of guest and host tutors: each guest tutor brings in a unique way of looking at the city, while the unit’s host tutors brings in a thematic framework specific to the local content of Berlin. Additionally, the workshop includes a series of transversal activities, such as lectures, film screenings, and social events.
The workshop’s main objective is to equip participants with a sharpened vision through which to comprehend the city as a complex interactive system. It aims towards the development of collaborative strategies that challenge conventional methods of urban analysis and cut through disciplinary boundaries, encouraging creativity and originality.
