Seminar Week

  • Kostenrahmen: F
  • Barranquilla, Colombia

    Hannes Gutberlet, Katerina Kourkoula, Danny Wills
  • Scientific Advisors: Alice Herzog, Lea Rüfenacht


During Seminar Week, students will travel to Barranquilla as an integral part of the FABRICA DE CULTURA design studio.  This trip will be an opportunity to advance research and understand the city and the site; it will be an opportunity to expand analysis, challenge conventional understandings, and test conceptual prototypes.  This week will not only serve as a vital step in the conceptual development of the project theses, but also as a critical study of the architecture, urbanism, culture, social exchange, and mobility in Barranquilla.
