About the Programme
Completed works by one of the most discussed architectural tandems in post-war Poland, Oskar (1922-2005) and Zofia (1924-2013) Hansen, will become a testing ground for the duration of the Urban Summer School, that is, for two weeks.
This international and interdisciplinary project is yet another instalment of the “Visions and Experiences” summer school, initiated by the Centre for Urban History of East Central Europe in Lviv, and devoted to urban issues.
Participants will be selected by a recruitment committee, composed of representatives of the National Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning, the Centre for Urban History of East Central Europe in Lviv, and the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.
We welcome undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and young professionals operating in the field of architecture, urban planning, art and design, as well as representatives of other areas of humanities (history, sociology, fine arts, anthropology, and more). We extend the invitation to all those interested in the present functioning and the future of modernist housing estates.
The National Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning is a newly established, state-owned cultural institution, acting through campaigns, exhibitions, and educational and editorial activities, with the aim of shaping social awareness, promoting architectural and urban-planning culture, and endeavouring to preserve the national architectural heritage of the twentieth century.
