IE University (Spain) and TU Graz (Austria) are pleased to launch the 2012 IE/TUG Summer School that will be held in Madrid, from July the 6th to July the 12th 2012. This year’s program, titled “Emptiness: The Potentials of Vacancy”, will deal with the consequences and opportunities that derive from the gross overbuilding of the past decade. After years of construction-fuelled euphoria, we are now confronted with the after-effects: a city riddled with empty masses, incomplete plans, and urban spaces hastily conceived and neither fully constructed nor consolidated. The moment is challenging and profoundly liberating; it is a crisis that demands creativity and gives us license to invent. The intensive, 8-day, studio-based design workshop is open to enthusiastic architecture students at the undergraduate and graduate level, as well as students from other disciplines, and those who have recently completed their studies.

You can find all the information at www.ie_tugsummerschool.ie.edu If you have any doubts or comments, please contact ruth.vegac@ie.edu
