07.09.2020 | 14:00 - 17:00 Uhr

This event will be held in english language.

In 2020, the summer school will have a thematic focus on climate adaptation and mitigation in social housing. Global warming and climate change bring about dramatic challenges for social housing. The function of housing and housing environments as shelter against heat, rain and storm receives new attention, even in regions that have not been prone to adverse weather conditions for a long time. Urban design strategies rediscover values of shadow and water for healthy living conditions.
