INFORMATION ABOUT THE SUMMER SCHOOL
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
