IP Summerschool Amsterdam

The Big Reset on Neighbourhood Design
Fresh Design Approaches and New Variations on the Concept of Neighbourhoods

The 10-day European Intensive Programme will consist of inspiring lectures, intensive workshops and critical debates. The central question of the IP is: what role can urban planners and designers play in building coherent cities in the current conditions and what are the options for creating attractive and productive neighbourhoods?

Subject of study and design will be the Western Harbour area in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, which is on the eve of transformation. During the summer school students will work on developing fresh approaches and new variations for all inclusive neighbourhoods for this area. This will be the start of a European debate on the reset of neighbourhood design and on the findings of this summer school.
