GSS – Global Summer School
WHAT IS GLOBAL SUMMER SCHOOL?
The Global Summer School (GSS) is a platform defined by ambitious, multi-scalar investigation on the implications of emergent techniques in our planned environments. Each year, international teams located in key cities around the globe explore a common agenda with projects that are deeply embedded in diverse local conditions. Because of this, participants have an international laboratory to test their design hypothesis, understanding how design conclusions derived locally can be tested and evolved globally in different cities where other teams reside.
This intensive two-week course connects each participant to ongoing research agendas in robotics, simulation, physical computing, parametric design, digital fabrication, and other relevant emerging design methodologies. Specific emphasis is placed on understanding the multiscalar implications of design conclusions, thus creating critical research advanced on the application of new technologies in design.
GLOBAL SUMMER SCHOOL 2018
GSS18 agenda focuses on broadband connectivity, cloud computing, social media, sensors are coming together, changing the way we interact, consume, transport, shaping a new urban landscape blurred by digital and physical stimuli. This process is called “digitization”.
