IFHP Summer School 2018

Monday 13.08.2018 to Friday 24.08.2018

We welcome you to the 24th edition of the oldest ongoing summer school in the field of urban planning
The summer school will take place in Finland on 13-24 August 2018.

The Summer School is based on intensive workshops taking place in two case study cities. Participants will be invited to explore the theme “Making, Shaping or Letting Be”, focusing on diversifying monofunctional urban zones. First they engage in an individual analytic task, and then develop their ideas to an urban planning and design solution as a group work in one of the two case-cities. The projects will be developed in a semi-realistic manner, in interaction with active planners and experts of planning education and research. In addition, there will be specialist lectures and a one-day study trip to both historic and new neighbourhoods of Helsinki.


On the Summer School Website you can learn more about this year’s theme, workshop cities and application procedure.
IFHP organise the event along with our partners Tampere University of Technology and Aalto University.
