Seminar Week

The Seminar Week offers students the chance to visit a territory relevant to the themes of the Design Studio through a guided exploration of the urban landscape, punctuated by expert feedback. The group typically attends architectural tours, museum visits, lectures and talks from local partners in a given location. Where possible, also meets with Municipal representatives and takes part in on-site mapping workshops to collect urban ideas and input from residents, interdisciplinary experts, community groups, NGOs, and the private sector.
