Next Madrasa - Neighborhood of Active Knowledge
Urbanization / Digitalization / Ecologization
How can we design a neighborhood for the 21st Century hillside settlements in Sarajevo?
Can the idea of the traditional learning space of a Madrasa be translated to city - scale? Can architecture reconcile new productive learning centralities, networks of knowledge production, economic opportunity, digital lifestyles and environmental engagement?
Sarajevo is a place of architecture, resistance, social engagement, innovation, inclusive cultural and religious diversity, and being an urban laboratory. Education is the foundation for creating sustainable development models, like the emerging University Campus and Cultural District, which are the Studio’s grounds for imagining new relationships between traditional settlements, and the rapidly developing post-industrial valley.
In the Design Studio, students will learn digital tools, to conduct evidence- based research and translate it into their architectural prototypical projects.
The Next Madrasa is a central space for lifelong learning, knowledge exchange, and innovative circular economies that can regenerate, restore and build capacities, enabling a quality of urban life in the hillside settlements of Sarajevo.
