Global Urban Studio Intensive

Summer 2021

Taught By: Miodrag Mitrasinovic

Section: A

CRN: 2567

Credits: 3

This is a fully-online, international, intensive design workshop taking place between June 1—June 11, 2021. During the first week, The New School students will work remotely and collaboratively with students at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, on sites in New York, Hong Kong and Rio de Janeiro. In the second week, The New School students will work as a team to complete the design proposals and create online content (podcasts, videos, zines) to be shared with residents, community- and municipal organizations in all three locations. The main idea of the workshop is to place global challenges —such as the pandemic, migration, climate change, public health, privatization of private resources— into a comparative perspective, and collaboratively design scenarios and proposals for tackling them locally. All three teams will focus on infrastructure corridors: in the case of NYC, we will focus on public spaces and infrastructure along the MTA's Line 7 corridor, from Hudson Yards to Flushing, Queens. Interdisciplinary and international student teams will create proposals which tackle global problems by creating vibrant, meaningful, and community-centered public spaces, social infrastructures, and design and art interventions. Co-organized by Parsons, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Open to: All university graduate degree students and undergraduate juniors and seniors, by instructor's permission only.
