TRAVELING STUDIO, EUROTRIP 13
To augment Professor Mark Mack's Research studio STUPID CITIES: Intelligent Neighborhoods, the students traveled with Mack to seven European cities, whose transportation and liveability indexes exceed the urban contemporary standards. The studio mostly travelled on public transportation, bikes and trains in and through Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Vienna, Villach, Venice, and Barcelona. Each of these cities offers different transportation and liveability highlights, which make them unique places.
No student was lost, even though many just lost their heart in the various "exotic" urban environments. This twelve day seven city extreme tour of OLD CITIES, whose efforts to cope with the future is expressed in the various programs and visions they are engaged in, was the first part of this three quarter effort to redesign the Beach city of Venice, California as part of this research studio.
