The Barlett, Development Planning Unit (DPU) run an interdisciplinary summer school programme each year, geared toward students and emerging professionals with backgrounds and/or a keen interest in the urban environment. The 'DPU SummerLab 2016' programme is an opportunity to experience first-hand the action-research and practice-based ethos of the DPU.


We have have six exciting destinations to choose from in various host cities. Participants work in collaboration with local partners who are actively engaged with local projects; not only will this expose participants to a real-time 'learning by doing' opportunity, but it can also been seen as a city laboratory for developing socially responsive design measures, helping those on the ground develop their ideas and make their plans become a reality. The week-long workshops are designed to provoke, stimulate, and reconsider the role of urban practitioners in promoting spatial justice. The programme will focus on skills development and latest critical research thinking and practice in urban design / urban development planning.  Workshop destinations include:
