Socio-Ecological Exploration of the Next Metropolis
July 7th to August 1st.
APPLY by May 2nd, 2014 to win a Scholarship of $1,500.
CIEE Global Architecture and Design Summer Session 2014 on Future Cities will address the emerging discipline of global urbaneering. Future Cities will supply all vital needs of their population. In these cities, food, water, air, energy, waste, mobility, and shelter will be radically restructured to support life in every form.
The new Global Architecture and Design program was created in partnership with Terreform ONE http://terreform.org and ONE Lab New York School for Design and Science. http://onelab.org
Future Cities 2014 will take place at the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard that stands as one of the last remaining testaments to New York City’s industrial past. What was once a place for building state-of-the-art ships has become New Lab, a cutting edge center that fosters creativity, design, and entrepreneurship.
Using New York as a laboratory, the studio will rethink what is salubrious about the city, in both its forms and its life. We will base our investigations on one illuminating hypothesis: in the future New York will grow to be self-sufficient in its critical necessities.
TED style talks will be given by world renowned architects, engineers, biologists, ecologists, industrial designers, physicists and artists. They will offer radically new responses to the real needs and aspirations of future cities.
In series of workshops the participants will learn the processes of urban farming, biotechnology, phytoremediation, growing materials, scripting and computational modeling for controlled growth.
