GENEVA UNBUILT integrated seminar week
16.03. – 23.03.2019
An investigative journey constitutes the core of the project. Travelling through the territory, we will explore the gardens of Geneva, experiencing their complexity and beauty. Gardeners will guide us on curated walks through the city, boat trips and hikes, followed by workshop sessions with guest tutors, experts and fellow students. Extensive field research is a prerequisite for the students’ projects. The interaction with local experts, inhabitants and farmers as well as portraying the site in ethnographic sketches and photographs are key to a meaningful portrait of the territory. During the seminar week students will have time to investigate their project sites and collect material from archives and expert interviews. Participation is obligatory for all studio members; we offer additional places for external student.

Geneva Unbuilt is part of a collaborative territorial design project “Greater Geneva and the Land. Property Ecology, Identity” being developed with University of Luxembourg Master in Architecture program and Raumbureau A+U, in the framework of the “Greater Geneva Consultation” coordinated and supported by Foundation Braillard. The seminarweek will be conducted together with students from Luxembourg.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN INTEGRATED SEMINAR WEEK.
