Project description

The internationally oriented and transdisciplinary Hudson Valley Ecologies teaching research project focuses on the interrelations between city and countryside. Hence, it ties in with the professorship’s previous projects on urban peripheries in Berlin and Rome, as well as projects in rural areas in Schwarzatal in Thuringia. The Hudson Valley extends along several hundred kilometres in the north of Manhattan and is of great economic, ecological and cultural importance for New York City and the cities, villages and landscapes along the Hudson River. Areas for collective and individual research and design topics are to be developed in the course of the project and in cooperation with the Hudson Valley Initiative at GSAPP, Columbia University, New York. The project is based on several interlinked teaching formats, including a seminar, an excursion to New York / Hudson Valley in October 2019 and a design studio in the winter semester 2019/20. It is open to highly motivated students who are interested in the current international discourse on architecture and urban design and who also have a good competency and some experience in architectural design and its presentation in the form of drawings, models and visualisations. Students from other courses and/or faculties are welcome, provided they fulfil certain conditions.
