With the Manifesta12 biennale, the Planetary Garden, the workshop is organised by HydroCity in partnership with CODESIGNLAB, the Polytechnic School of the University of Palermo, and the Gerphau in Paris. The workshop will gather a group of fifteen students and professionals for a period of 10 days to work on the city of Palermo through its Xth century abandoned qanat water network. How can questions of heritage, infrastructure, and natural resources generate urban renewal in a juxtaposition of scales? The workshop will produce a collective publication in print and an in-situ installation that will serve to re-use and reveal the invisible network.

XXV Monte Carasso International Architectural Design Seminar

June 30 – July 13, 2018

Director: Luigi Snozzi
Instructors: Mario Ferrari / Michele Gaggetta / Giacomo Guidotti / Stefano Moor

Special guest: Mario Botta


The Seminar, which has been an integral part of the development and urban planning of Monte Carasso started by Luigi Snozzi in 1979, is held annually as a two-week design workshop.  Over the years, under the guidance of architect Snozzi, of instructors and external experts, the attendees debated topics related to the development of Monte Carasso.

In the last five seminars, participants focused their attention on a wider area, which Monte Carasso is a part of, and addressed an issue of topical significance: the aggregation of municipalities in the Bellinzona district – an aggregation that hopefully won’t be a mere political and administrative deed but will provide a unique opportunity for territorial reorganization.

Ricky Liu & Associates (RLA)

Ricky Liu & Associates (RLA), the largest architectural design firm in Taiwan, is pleased to offer an International Internship Program for the summer of 2018 during the months from June to August. Details of the program are included in the enclosed cover letter and promotion poster.
Last year our internship program included 30 students from various countries, such as France, the United States, the United Kingdom, Singapore and Taiwan. The students experienced a successful interchange of ideas and cultures while learning about the different areas of architecture through hands-on practice. The young interns gave us valuable feedback, enabling us to further develop the internship program and the dynamic culture of our working environment.
The 2018 summer internship program will be even broader in scope and scale. We are inviting students from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, the United States, Australia, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Interns will have the opportunity to introduce their country and culture, share their common enthusiasm for architecture and learn from each other.
RLA will provide interns with room and board during their stay. We want to ensure that the students will be free of difficulties with day-to-day living in Taiwan, so they can focus on the discovery of their strengths. We hope this will help them with their careers in the future.
Please offer this wonderful internship opportunity to your architecture students and any others who might be interested. Kevin Liu, the son of our principal architect, was one of our interns who benefited from the program. We hope to be able to collaborate with your prestigious institution and hope to hear from your applicants soon.

Summary and program review, please refer to:

In order to provide more opportunities for international students to come to Taiwan and have chances for interchanging their knowledge and culture, we decide to extend application date to May 31.

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.
