General description

Every city, big or small, has places which are simply boring. Have you ever thought in how many ways such black-spots can be changed? Street art, rotating benches, underwater playgrounds, artificial tropical rainforest, chocolate-fountain?. All right, let?s stop here? My point is that the possibilities are endless!

You don?t have to worry about long and complicated lectures, get ready for creative workshops and case-studies, instead. Even though the subject is based on urban planning, you don?t need any specific university knowledge to apply! Teachers and students from Faculty of Architecture will teach you everything in easy, casual way. You will also develop your soft skills, especially cooperating in a team. So actually all you need is creative and open mind!

Find out that deep down inside you?re a great creator and prove to yourself one thing ? YOU CAN DO IT BETTER!
