The commercial centre                      Summer school 2018                      Tutors




The summer school will take place from August 25th to September 1st 2018 in Ghent, Belgium. It consists in an intensive workshop combined with a public evening program: screenings, lectures and debates. About 40 international students and recently graduated architects will work on the future of commercial centres in Ghent. The participants will collaborate in teams of 10 under the supervision of one of the 4 tutors: Buero Kofink Schels, Plan Común, Conen Sigl Architekten and Jean-Benoît Vétillard. They will investigate how architectural interventions could release potential strategies for the renewal of commercial centres and their link with their urban environment. At the end of the week, the results will be discussed with a panel of architects, urban designers, academics and public authorities. They will later be compiled in a publication and presented in a public exhibition.
