The CAAD Department at ETH Zürich has announced its first ever Summer School, where the faculty includes: Ludger Hovestadt, architect and computer scientist, professor for CAAD at ETH Zürich; Vera Bühlmann, philosopher and media theorist, professor for architectural theory at TU Vienna; Elias Zafiris, quantum physicist and mathematician, professor at Eötvös University, Budapest; and Sebastian Michael who will be doing work on 'serious story telling'.
This is "aimed at creative open-minded people who would like to challenge traditional architectural education. Current students, bachelors, masters and PhDs, recent graduates, architects, designers, career changers and individuals interested in technology and culture at large are all welcome to explore and cultivate their thinking", and it promises to be a genuinely stimulating couple of weeks in a lovely château in France. Some scholarship places available.
