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.

This website has just undergone a major overhaul.
There's a completely new design, some obsolete content has been weeded out and everything else has been updated. And there's a new media page, which contains video and audio clips with interviews and trailers that had previously been dispersed across several different project sites, where of course they also remain available.
Have a look around and if you find anything amiss, never hesitate to get in touch.
Sebastian returns to the stage as a performer with his new piece The Sonneteer - a play on passion, power and possession, which features the sonnets of William Shakespeare.
Alongside him on stage will be young Actor Tom Medcalf as the two delve into some of the most glorious poetry ever written in search of a possible truth about love.
The Sonneteer will preview in London at the Landor Theatre for two nights on 18th and 19th July 2014, before starting its world premiere run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, from 1st to 23rd August 2014.
