The University of Kentucky College of Design Architecture Studio in Berlin is an immersive study abroad program led by Associate Professor of Architecture Jason Scroggin. Each participant will live in Berlin, Germany for the summer and enroll in two courses, a six-credit design studio and three-credit design elective, that explore, analyze, and discuss the forces that define and shape the city of Berlin. The result of these investigations is a series of design interventions that question the relationship between the urban object and the network of movement in a contemporary city. Workshops and lectures will be arranged to focus on the use of contemporary design tools to help facilitate design research and production of the studio project.
In addition to the design research and production, the studio will undertake a number of research field trips to architectural and urban design precedents inside and outside of the city and visit design offices to understand the nature of design practice in Berlin. The schedule allows free travel on most weekends.
