The European Metropolis 2016 study abroad program ”From Randstad to Bandstadt Speculations on the Future” engaged the students in speculations on the common future of cities.
Observing historical and contemporary urban patterns critically allowed for speculations on the future of the city. Emphasis was given to the relationship between cities, the phenomenology of place, the making of architecture, and the tension between innovation and tradition, art and science. Projects were developed addressing a broad spectrum of urban and architectural challenges, commenting on cultural and political conditions.Our cross-disciplinary investigation of the status quo produced questions – not answers.
