Course Description

Party Urbanism: Urban Design Strategies of Community Building will focus on Berlin’s music, art, and theater scenes to develop methods for socially sustainable urbanisms. We will map these established, current, and emerging cultural scenes to analyze (1) strategies of community building, (2) categories of high, low, and sub-cultures, as well as (3) their implications for the development of Berlin’s neighborhoods. It will be the studio’s goal to use the city’s cultural scene to develop design strategies encouraging practices of community building.
