In the Advanced Studios, themes and programs are defined by the individual critics. These themes and programs both carry an educational objective and present an opportunity for the critic to develop with his or her students a specific area of work or research. The range of faculty and studio projects in studio sections allows the student to work with those instructors on projects that will allow specialized design study.
The Public Space Workshop is an intensive three-week rapid exchange in search of emergent issues concerning contemporary public space. Students and faculty from participating universities collaborate at nodes within GSAPP’s Studio-X Global Network to investigate design issues, expanding their understanding through a diverse array of feedback. The cities are active testing grounds for research and experimentation within the built environment.
Public space is the interface for exchanges in cities, and today more than ever the site of rapid change. The physical presence of public space continues to grow more dynamic as the use of complementary virtual networks provide for increased access and mobility. Together, they form an adaptive infrastructure in cities, emerging, networking, and responding in unprecedented ways.
