Within the field of civil and architectural engineering, we offer two courses - below, you will find more information about each course.
Please check the individual course descriptions for possible prerequisites and remember to see at which campus it is offered.
Experimental Architecture with Computational Design and Digital Fabrication
The Summer School will focus on exploring ideas and producing design artifacts as answer to some fundamental driving questions: What kind of tectonic configurations can be enabled by means of digital fabrication such as additive and robotic manufacturing? How do we realize high-performance architecture with it? How can we build bespoke architecture in a sustainable way? Adopting a design/make approach, catalyzed through tailored computational techniques, various structural configurations will be investigated. The school outcomes will be contributing to the creation of an atlas of digitally fabricated tectonic prototypes: Experimental architectural configurations where material/form/structure are developed in a coherent design approach which takes full advantage of the potential of emergent fabrication techniques.
Urban ResilienceUrban resilience aims at increasing the ability of urban systems, to respond systemically and dynamically to present and future shock and stresses related to the major global challenges. Urban resilience is instrumental to address both causes and effects of these major global challenges, rethinking the way in which cities are designed, planned and managed, at the same time fostering innovation. The summer school aims at providing the participants with the latest knowledge on urban resilience research, practice and policies through lectures; and to co-develop their skills and knowledge on planning for urban resilience using Odense’s real-life experience and challenges as a living laboratory, through problem-based workshops.
