Meg Walker (Project for Public Spaces PPS and Pratt Institute) appointed at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar as DAAD Guest Lecturer* for „Placemaking“ in the master programme Integrated Urban Development and Design for winter term 2019/20
Meg Walker, of Project for Public Spaces (PPS) New York City, who teaches as Adjunct Professor at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn (New York, USA), will be the DAAD-Guest Lecturer* for „Placemaking“ at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in the coming winter semester 2019/20. The lectureship has been initiated and will be hosted through the master programme Integrated Urban Development and Design (IUDD).
She will teach a „Future of Places Lab“, a hands-on, studio-type project for the revitalization of a public space in cooperation with a German city, which will be offered as part of the curriculum of the Integrated Urban Development and Design module. In addition, a seminar on the History and Theory of Placemaking and a Placemaking Symposium will be part of the lectureship.
As a prologue to the XIX. Model Project Forum, on 30. April 2019 current IUDD students already participated in a Placemaking-Workshop with Meg Walker and her colleague Priti Patel, both from Project for Public Spaces.
We welcome our guest lecturer and we are happy to offer new approaches to spatial analysis and strategies for creating future-oriented urban space to our IUDD students. New students will have the opportunity to learn exciting and pathbreaking concepts for the transformation and activation of public spaces!
