AA Visiting School nanotourism 2018

This years’ programme will research and develop strategies of nanotourism in Honolulu, Hawaii, a context defined by a mix of indigenous and contemporary cultures, operating in an environment globally famous for its industry of mass tourism. On an average day, Hawaii’s 1.4 million residents host 220,000 visitors and up to 35,000 people fly in and out of its airports. In 2017 more than 9.1 million tourists were projected to visit Hawaii, with an expected rise to just over 9.5 million by 2020. The intensive two-week,  research-design-build programme will focus on Kaka‘ako, an emerging and vibrant 600-acre waterfront district in downtown Honolulu. Through hands-on collaboration with local institutions, we will develop strategies and projects, that aim at challenging the existing notion of tourism by creating hyper site-specific interventions in 1:1 scale.

nanotourism is a creative critique to the effects of mainstream tourism and operates as a site specific, participatory, locally oriented, bottom-up alternative by stimulating mutual interaction between user and provider through co-creation and exchange of knowledge.

MA Program Critical Urbanisms

Urban Studies
University of Basel
Critical Urbanisms
Master of Arts

In our rapidly changing and contested global environment, cities are becoming increasingly important: they house a majority of the world’s inhabitants and act as catalysts of social, economic, cultural, and ecological change. Urban Studies at the University of Basel offers a new platform for understanding these planetary transformations, starting from the premise that the world’s urban and environmental challenges call not only for new ways of doing but for new ways of thinking. Imagining alternative futures means rethinking the present—its historical making, its political unfolding, and the ways in which it is made sensible.
The University of Basel’s Master in Critical Urbanisms is an English-taught four-semester program that trains a new generation of graduates to think beyond divisions of urban versus rural and North versus South in order to address the complexity of urban lifeworlds in the twenty-first century. The program is founded by an internationally recognized faculty who work on and with cities and territories from a global perspective. The curriculum is structured around an interdisciplinary research studio where students work together combining humanities and social-scientific methods with visual and spatial analysis, and a semester of study and fieldwork in Cape Town, at the African Centre for Cities of the University of Cape Town.

GOTHIQUE : Le temps des grandes cathédrales

Après avoir réalisé, en décembre 2015, l’exposition de maquettes OPUS
FRANCIGENUM : Un regard brésilien sur l’architecture religieuse gothique, je
propose une nouvelle exposition dont certains édifices gothiques,
soigneusement sélectionnés, seront représentés à l’échelle de 1/200. Plus
grandes, ces maquettes offrent une représentation plus précise et plus riche
des éléments de détail.
L’exposition GOTHIQUE : Le temps des grandes cathédrales est un
voyage au travers de l’extraordinaire épopée de ces grands vaisseaux de
pierres. Au fil de l’exposition se dévoileront ainsi les secrets de 17 monuments
choisis parmi les plus beaux et les plus emblématiques. Les visiteurs plongeront
dans l’univers de ce nouvel art qui bouleversa l’Europe et qui se voulut toujours
plus haut, toujours plus grand, toujours plus beau !
