International Summer Academy Zurich – 22 July – 05 August 2012

The process of suburbanisation seems to be advancing unstoppably. A faceless, anonymous mesh of settlements is spreading itself around the old core cities. Do we really want to continue this destruction of one of our most important resources, the landscape, and of one of our most important cultural achievements, the city? The International Summer Academy Zurich poses from 22 July – 05 August 2012 a central question: how can we condense the agglomerations to form a city, while preserving landscape spaces?

Well-known architects from Switzerland and other countries will examine the themes of agglomeration/city/landscape using the example of the Zurich metropolitan area. The vision “Glatt – the City” produced by the Architects Group Krokodil for a new city near Zurich provides the conceptual basis.

The two-week-long International Summer Academy Zurich with the title  “FROM SUBURB TO CITY” is directed at students and those embarking upon their professional careers in the areas of architecture/urban planning and landscape architecture from Switzerland and abroad.
