This new initiative seeks to establish a unique rotating platform for in situ immersion and experimentation in contested and transient urban environments where the boundaries of spatial agency are actively tested, hinging upon critical analysis and spatial knowledge development.
Drawing on the extensive resources of the DPU in collaboration with local partners, DPU summerLab leverages the reality of the city as a laboratory for developing socially responsive design measures that provoke, stimulate, strategize, and reconsider the role of designers in furthering spatial justice.
The fee per participant is: £600 for the Bucharest workshop
