School: Anhalt University of Applied Sciences
Course: Dessau Summer School of Architecture
Location: Dessau-Rosslau, Germany
Course dates: 3 June 2024 to 12 July 2024
Application deadline: 29 February 2024

Located in Dessau-Rosslau, Germany, the Dessau Summer School of Architecture develops its thematic focus from the relevance of Bauhaus Dessau in the history of architecture.

Parts of the course are conducted within Bauhaus Dessau. Participants from different nations enter an architectural dialogue on a review of modernity.

The components of the program place current developments in architecture and design in relation to the history of modernity and its evidence on site.

Starting with a workshop in cooperation with Bauhaus Dessau Foundation on the mutual relations between education and design in the Bauhaus Aula, the studio focuses especially on one key topic of Bauhaus: the cultural transfer.

Within architectural building typology, not only concert halls, museums or theatres serve the purpose of cultural transfer.

Which role does architecture take in this context? How does materiality contribute to its details and its function? Do designers anticipate a typical user-behaviour within the design process, or is the user an integral part of this process?

By studying at Anhalt University, students learn about Germany through a language class and by taking part in excursions for the architecture and society course and art class.

Participants earn 12 ECTS for the course. Contact [email protected] to learn more.
