Travelling studios are working laboratories for design thought and production and involve the exploration of complex, real-life issues. They expose students to unfamiliar cultures, places and people and stimulate their ability to think creatively and problem solve. The Santiago studio will be led by different staff members each time it is run and will engage learning in more than one of the Faculty’s disciplines, thus encouraging an interdisciplinary focus.
The Santiago studio will explore the interface between development and coastal landscape along the Chilean coast. It will look at the impact of migration to the coast by people escaping the pressures of urban life: a phenomenon occurring in many places across the globe. With this migration comes development to accommodate the population increase. Students will consider how development can be shaped to maintain environmental quality and respond to predicted climate changes.
Pre-trip briefings or seminars will precede the travel component of the studio. The studio will incur travel costs, in addition to tuition fees. Faculty subsidies will, however, be available.
