In times of accelerated change, we find ourselves with the task of designing for an evermore uncertain and unknown future. Above our table are things that are either too massive and nonlocal for our grasping, or things that are perhaps too intimate and close to have a real impact. Rapid technological advancements, environmental and climate change, the global pandemics, and the interconnectedness of everything are only but a few of the contributing factors. In this semester we will explore paradigms and practices that are on the verge of our own human imagination, in order to enable new concrete futures.

New students must be part of the selection interviews that will take place on 03.11.2020 from 10:00 until 13:00. After completing the above registration, you will be informed via E-Mail about the time and (online) place of your interview.

Additionally, a special offer for the „Global Experimental Live-Lab Design Studio (GEL-Lab)“, a cooperation among 8 universities worldwide with the theme „Designing for an Uncertain and Unknown Future (at the Global Scale)“ will be provided for a maximum of 8 students. More details will be provided after the registration is completed.
