Architecture programme - Amsterdam/Rotterdam: Exploring Identity

Amsterdam and Rotterdam - two cities with very different backgrounds, issues and opportunities, located at a distance of just 80 kilometers from each other. What are the components that determine the image and identity of a city? Which role does architecture play in city branding and city experience?

This two-week graduate programme will explore the influence of architecture and urban design on the identity of cities.
