Corona has revealed: an online urban design studio is possible.

Technically advanced online teaching is offering a unique opportunity for international collaboration.

The Urban Design Hackathon is a workshop for international students from European universities. Following the motto „Reanimate the dinosaur“, students are invited to develop future scenarios for obsolete structures of the urban environment while testing a new format of blended learning and international collaboration. The workshop is divided into two phases: the first being online and digital and the second being in person and analogue.
