Desperate Houselives. Ideas for peri-urban areas

How to deal with the European hinterland? The Summer School focused on the City of Graz: The town consists of 17 districts, from which they chose five: Puntigam, Liebenau, Straßgang, Wetzelsdorf and Gösting. 

Ten young emerging architects from the Future Architecture Platform participants passed on their way of thinking and their working methods to 25 students. Each group out of two tutors and five students was invited to work on one district in a collaborative way. The aim was to generate an open work atmosphere where the possibilities of emerging ideas and strategies could be explored without any restrictions in order to put forth an alternative scenario for each area. The Summer school took place between 27 Aug and 7 Sep at House of Architecture (HDA), Graz.
