Global Architecture and Design Studio
Future Cities Studio Stec - Hejl - Tsikolia
“Utilizing an approach that is both interdependent and interdisciplinary, students are encouraged to inquire, debate, collaborate, conduct experiments, and rethink the potential of today’s architects and designers. The aim is to develop a language of technological design that can create immediacy between individual responsibility and the current global environmental crisis. Environmental problems are a crisis of human alienation from the natural world, and the Future Cities Studio explores ways in which humanity and nature can come back together. What is required to comprehend globality today is a close study of specific places, cities and cultures. In order to create an educational experience that breeds cosmopolitanism, Global Architecture and Design in Prague works with elements of history and tradition just as it takes full advantage of new technologies and the opportunities of global exchange.”
