Courses are taught by professors from Frankfurt UAS and the University of Art and Design Offenbach.

Target group

The summer school is open to undergraduate and graduate students studying architecture, design, city planning, urban planning or related areas of study, or students with a general interest in designing architecture.

Course aim

Using the city centers of Frankfurt and Offenbach as examples, summer school students will examine and compare the usability of urban spaces by different groups. Students will study the historical origins of these spaces in both cities and explore the needs that public spaces should satisfy. During the summer school, students have the opportunity to analyze spatial definitions, structures, design, and usability in comparison with corresponding situations from their home countries.
