In the first Leuphana-Online-University course „ThinkTank Cities“ participants design models for future living in urban centers under the direction of renowned architect Daniel Libeskind. The closing date for applications is January 7. Details can be found on the Leuphana webpage www.leuphana.de/digital-school. The three-month course starts on January 9, 2013.
Participants in the Leuphana online course „ThinkTank Cities“ will be working in teams of five. They will solve theoretical and practical assignments and accompany the work of the other groups through commentary and evaluation. Further down the line they will translate their ideas of the city of the future into 2D- and 3D-models.
For the architect Daniel Libeskind this project is „a chance to develop a vision for our living together in the 21st century using the intelligence of thousands of multi-disciplinary teams“. Libeskind has developed numerous innovative concepts around the world. One of his main works is the Jewish Museum in Berlin. Since summer 2007 he has assumed an avocational professorship at the Leuphana University. He also designed the new central building at the Leuphana University in co-operation with students.
