|Subject Overview:|| |
Travelling studios are working laboratories for design thought and production and involve the exploration of complex, real-life issues. They expose students to unfamiliar cultures, places and people, and stimulate their ability to think creatively and solve problems.
These studios aim to bring together students from architecture, urban design, landscape and planning streams and encourage an interdisciplinary focus.
Pre-trip briefings or seminars will precede the travel component of the studio. The studio will incur travel costs, in addition to tuition fees. Faculty subsidies will, however, be available.
Specific information about Travelling Studio (Indonesia)
The studio is built on an interdisciplinary teaching and learning approach, bringing together the staff and students of the Melbourne School of Design and Bandung Institute of Technology in Bandung, Indonesia. The studio targets students who are interested in urban landscape design, Asian urbanism, urban informality and socio-cultural sustainability.
The studio will address the question “How do we design with urban informality?” This is a critical early 21st Century challenge for cities in fast developing economies experiencing unprecedented expansions. Much of this growth manifest in squatter settlements, slums and vibrant street commerce that operate within a large ‘shadow’ informal economy. Bandung’s urban growth is consistent with this phenomenon, with the globalization influenced/induced forms and practices layered onto colonial and indigenous urban fabrics.
The cross-cultural and multidiscipline studio will consists of an intense fieldwork to investigate the underlying factors that prevail in and sustain informal street commerce at Jalan Dago, formerly planned by the Dutch in the 19th Century as the colonial neighborhood’s main street. Students will map out the morphology of the street at multiple scales, from the urban to the very fine grain of vendor commerce and will conduct surveys and interviews with stakeholders to gain deeper local insights and perceptions of the issues. They will be exposed to the policies, plans and practices of local government agencies as well as academic institutions and NGO advocates. The studio will be focusing on and explore design/planning possibilities within the multiple interstices between the ‘formal’ typologies/practices (colonial and global modern) and ‘informal’ typologies/practices (indigenous kampongs and street side commerce).
Note: Students may be eligible to receive a one off payment of up to $1000 from Melbourne Global Mobility (conditions apply) and $800 from the Faculty - utilised towards student’s accommodation costs. Prices listed are subject to change.
