EVENT: Summer School Books and Buildings. Venice, 2-8 September 2018

Building on two previous summer schools, which took place in Croatia in 2015 and 2016, this year TEN, an independent association of practising architects and researchers based in Zurich, are launching a new teaching programme in collaboration with Professor Maarten Delbeke and the Chair for the History and Theory of Architecture at the gta, ETH Zürich.
In this intensive 8-day international summer school school hosted by the IUAV University in Venice, our goal is to interrogate the relationship between the building and the book in architectural culture, with the aim of collectively constructing and live-printing our own architectural book in response to our findings: A Design Brief for a Library. This book will form the basis of a hands-on construction project to take place in the future years of our ongoing summer programme.
The workshop will cost €380 per student, including accommodation, tuition and some meals. Travel expenses are not included. Participation is worth 2 ECTS credits.
Deadline for applications: 29 June 2018.
All further information (along with the application form) can be found at www.re-public.net
