DPU SUMMERLAB 2016 SERIES
Join us this summer for the 2016 summerLab programme. The Development Planning Unit is heading off to six different destinations around the world. Each workshop has been designed to, not only be a real-time 'learning by doing' opportunity, but also to act as a city laboratory for developing socially responsive design measures. Participants will work with local partners, helping them develop their ideas and make their plans become a reality.

The summerLab is an opportunity to experience first-hand the action-research and practice-based ethos of the DPU in collaboration with local partners in various host cities who are actively working on local projects. It is intended to provoke, stimulate, and reconsider the role of urban practitioners in promoting spatial justice. The programme will focus on skills development and latest critical research thinking and practice in urban design and urban development planning.

Please send all queries and application forms to: dpusummerlab@ucl.ac.uk. Please note that the application deadline is the 4th of July 2016.

join the movement ‪#‎TimeForImpact‬ and take it beyond ‪#‎BiennaleArchitettura2016‬!
Dear friends of AiD,

We have been promoting #Timeforimpact on our social media and you might be curious about what it is exactly…

We are embarking a new tool/ platform that helps connect world-wide talents and resources to community architecture initiatives. Now we take ourselves to the 'Front' where projects and an international community of experts gather in one place and time - Biennale Architettura 2016. Together with space&matter New Generations, AiD is thrilled to kick off a movement through Timeforimpact!

#TimeForImpact is also our pilot to test and identify the most effective tools to accelerate community architecture initiatives.

So what does it do? As a pilot, #TimeForImpact sets architects and experts in motion for continuation of urgent projects emerging during and most importantly - beyond the Biennale. The pilot is also our roadmap to further develop a platform to accelerate, or in our own words, to BUILDIFY community architecture startups.

Meet us at our opening, join the movement and take it beyond the exhibition! https://www.facebook.com/events/1307017475980259/permalink/1308659109149429/
