Closing Session



The programme of the International Summer School includes the following formats:

  • CLASSROOM SESSIONS: The research projects of the participants will be presented and put up for discussion among peers and members of an international Faculty. The aim is to reflect, refine and deepen one’s own work and research approach with peers and internationally renowned scholars from different disciplines and universities.
  • WORKSHOPS: Various methodological approaches to housing research, such as housing biographies, housing statistics and socio-spatial analysis to participatory methods at the interface between research, architecture, art and community work will be examined in more detail along with the prospects of mixed designs. The workshops will take place in collaboration with the department ‘Social Design – Arts as Urban Innovation’ of the University of Applied Arts, Vienna.
  • FIELD TRIPS: On-site field trips and walks with stakeholders, local actors and practitioners offer insights into the manifestation of the summer school’s topic in Vienna.
  • LECTURES: Public lectures and a panel discussion by and with members of the international faculty on current questions of housing research
