UrbanIxD Summer School

Welcome to our UrbanIxD Summer School website!


It’s hard to believe that the UrbanIxD project only started at the beginning of January and that we only began the planning for the Summer School a few months ago. Since then we have brought together a fantastic lineup of speakers and atelier leaders – we are really proud to be associated with such an inspirational collection of people. Between them they have an impressive range of experience in design, art, architecture and technology.

Urban Interaction Design is a relatively new field of study, and when we announced the summer school, we secretly hoped to attract around 60 applicants for the 40 places. We were astonished and overwhelmed when we received over 200 applications from many countries around the globe! It is a testament to the importance and relevance of the subject that we were able to attract such an impressive number of participants. The selection process was really tough – the standard was very high, and we have put together a really exciting multi-disciplinary mix of people. There is more information in the graphics about the backgrounds, skills and interests of our group. We really believe that this summer school is the beginning of an influential network of researchers and practitioners that will shape this emerging field in years to come.
