3rd European Urban Summer School at the University of Westminster

The Scarcity and Creativity in the Built Environment (SCIBE) team at the University of Westminster is hosting the 3rdEuropean Urban Summer School (EUSS) from 21 to 30 September 2012 in London.

The EUSS is a call to arms to develop new ways of thinking about emerging issues of scarcity in the context of the built environment. How and by whom is scarcity generated, engineered, constructed and perceived? What are we – as architects, planners, designers or policy makers in an urban context – to do under conditions of scarcity? The EUSS is an invitation Young Planning Professionals to reclaim the possibility of making the city. Apply now by sending an email to scarcetimeseuss[at], containing your response to the following task:

Identify one instance of ‘scarcity’ in the context of the built environment and propose a physical or process-related response.

The participation fee is £200 and the deadline for applications is 31 May 2012. Selected participants will be notified by 30 June 2012. Visit the EUSS website for more details and to learn about the possibility to win the International Young Planners Ward!
