The Technical University of Delft (TU Delft), in partnership with “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture and Urbanism (UAUIM), the European post-master in Urbanism(EMU), "La Firul Ierbii", and with the media support of "Zeppelin" magazine for architecture and urban culture, opens today the applications for the international design workshop “The Urban River Corridors of Bucharest” which will take place in Bucharest between 5-10 March 2017. The workshop is meant to test design instruments and to explore solutions for the spatial, social and ecological integration of the urban fabric of Bucharest along the river corridors of Dâmbovița and Colentina.

The workshop will take place at “La Firul Ierbii”, a centre for public debate and civic initiatives for issues related to urban development, and it offers a programme which combines analysis and design sessions with seminars in which guests from TU Delft and UAUIM, together with invited local experts will introduce the themes of the workshop: spatial morphology (day 2); the city and water (day 3); the city as a social-ecological system (day 4); and scales of the city(day 5). In addition, the event offers a series of evening talks offered by guests from TU Delft and UAUIM. The lectures are open to all participants and members of UAUIM.

The workshop call addresses young professionals, master students and doctoral candidates in the fields of urban design and planning, landscape architecture, and architecture. Given the multi-disciplinary character of the workshop, young professionals or students from connected fields, such as sociology, anthropology, geography, hydrology, civil engineering and environmental studies are also encouraged to submit their application.

Application is open until 15 January 2017. For more details, please visit the website of the event:
