School of Reconstruction to go ahead Summer 2021!

2020 should have been the year in which we hosted the School of Reconstruction but like many other events this had to be put on hold. However we are delighted to announce that The University of Brighton has been able to re-organise our School of Re-construction summer school as a digital event.

The two-week digital International Summer School which we will be hosting from the City of Brighton & Hove from 02-13 August 2021 is aimed at students from the worlds of design, architecture, construction and engineering, ‘The School of Re-construction’ (SoR-c) will explore ways to map, reconsider, and re-use materials from construction sites.

This will be a fully digital event free to all participants. We will be joined by partners, including re-use experts Rotor from Belgium, and Bellastock from France.

We are inviting students from across the INTERREG NW Europe Region (defined by INTERREG as Belgium, France, Germany Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK) to send us ‘motivation statements’ inspired by one or more of the themes listed on the SoR-c website (link below), outlining their skills and suitability for these chosen themes. We are also asking applicants to cite three references or inspirations. Applications are now live and will stay open until 23 April 2021.

Any students who made an application last year will be contacted and they just need to confirm their interest or complete the last step and they will be considered amongst the new applications.

We only have a total of 80 places for students across the North West European regions. For further details of the digital School of Re-construction, including the application form students will need to fill in, please use this link below.
