Re-Dwell Nicosia Summer School

The Nicosia Summer School was celebrated from 15 to 20 of November, organized by UCY. The aim of the summer schools was to foster the exchange of knowledge across ESRs, supervisors and non-academic organisations, on the challenges and opportunities of the design process in realizing needs for affordable and sustainable housing.

A programme of activities was designed to enable a follow-up on the development of ESR’s research through training activities related to the ongoing structured courses (RMT1 and TS1) and networking between the individual projects, supervisors and partner organisations. Invited speakers from professional practice, academia and local municipalities addressed topics related to “Planning, design, and retrofitting of affordable and sustainable housing” from multiple perspectives.

The lectures were followed by group discussions and complemented by site visits. A roundtable to discuss “The design of affordable and sustainable housing: challenges and opportunities” was opened to the public via an online session. Link
