2. WHAT IS A PARALLEL DESIGN STUDIO SOUTH?

Students of different schools of architecture closely collaborate in parallel design studios, to visualize alternative spatial strategies for the challenges of a future world. Unencumbered in a free academic context, students provide surprising and inspiring visions, using research by design. Starting from the local socio-economic and environmental situation, their projects are firmly rooted in everyday reality of the site and the contemporary needs of the urban dwellers. Through low-tech interventions students turn challenging situations into a positive opportunity for the place and its inhabitants.
