apply for seekicks x The Pratt Berlin summer program
The School of Architecture Pratt Institute New York is offering a month-long Berlin Summer Program in July 2023
The Pratt Berlin summer program will forge an in-depth engagement with Berlin design schools and the city stakeholders and focus on issues of social entrepreneurship and civic engagement, aiming to develop a sense of strategic innovation and empowerment through design.
By adopting design-led research methods and processes, students will develop their skills in spatial analysis, synthesis, ideation and representation and present spatial designs that range from the scale of a product to the scale of a building, landscape or urban strategy, that will affect the city of Berlin in its entirety.
Students will be introduced into the collaborative processes in the context of city development and actively engage in the cultural and economic context of the German capital. The learning outcomes will include the development of bespoke toolkits or tactics for urban engagement developed through participatory design processes with civic advocates and community groups to develop novel and anticipatory design solutions.
July 3, 2023 – July 26, 2023
This time the interdisciplinary seminar is also open for students and graduates from Berlin.
The activities within the program include field trips, research and evaluation of sites and buildings, work sessions and the development of concepts, visualizing ideas synthesizing various perspectives and presenting the outcomes to various stakeholders and program participants.
The events will take place only in Berlin.
There are only a certain number of spots available. A jury will select the final candidates.
We do not charge a general participation fee. However, extra costs, such as entrance fees or the cost of other activities, will most likely have to be payed by the participants themselves.
