See below for more details about schedule and this year’s theme: Mapping the Pedestrian-Oriented City
Mapping the Pedestrian-Oriented City
Copenhagen is well-known to architectural students for its pedestrian-oriented urban design, through which pedestrians and cyclists play the main role in urban life. As a result, there is also a lot of public space in the city for people to use and enjoy. These wonderful public spaces form the urban texture of the city and its lively living environment. Therefore, it would be very interesting for students to understand how such a pedestrian-oriented city works.
Nov 15 Pre-Departure Introduction Lecture
Before the trip there will be a short introduction lecture in which basic information about the city and the rules of the workshop will be introduced. The Lecturers will be Han Teerds, Leeke Reinders and Jan Rothuizen.
Programme in Copenhagen
In Copenhagen, we will start by attending a lecture by Jan Gehl and make ourselves more familiar with the city.
After arriving Copenhagen in the morning and settled down, a presentation about the city and public space will be given by the local tutor. Afterwards, students can start the city excursion
Visits to local architecture and landscaping firms: 3XN and Jan Geyl office
Students are expected to explore and map the city in the morning, afternoon and evening to find the characteristics of the city at different periods. Afterwards, they will present the products.
Return to the Netherlands
After returning, we will be editing the drawings and compose a story book for an exhibition in early 2018.
