Art and Architecture- Preservation Pavilion

when 7 August 2017 - 20 August 2017
language English
duration 2 weeks
fee GBP 250

To celebrate its fifth year, this year the Warsaw Summer School will team up with the Osiedle Jazdow community, to design and build a public pavilion which reflects our chosen themes of preservation and urban renewal and provides the vibrant local community with an exciting new civic-spirited asset of cultural value.

The Osiedle Jazdow community is a dynamic local collective based in a colony of twenty-seven wooden huts which were built in 1945 to provide temporary housing for those responsible for rebuilding the city. Having fulfilled their temporary purpose, the huts themselves have now become an integral part of the fabric of Warsaw and a symbol of preservation and urban renewal. The Warsaw Summer School will draw these themes as well as the social history and architectural vernacular of the colony to develop a brief for a new site-specific pavilion. Our designs will also be informed by the application of innovative building materials and experimental techniques ranging from working with concrete canvas to construction informed by sausage making techniques.

During the duration of the course, The Warsaw Sumer School will behave as a temporary extension of the Osiedle Jazdow community. This will involve eating together, watching film screenings and attending public lectures, integrating with and learning from local artists and craftspeople and working collaboratively to design and build a exciting new addition to the historic Jazdow colony.

At the conclusion of the school, our pavilion will host a public event which will be co-curated with members of the Jazdow community.

Target group

This course is open to students 15+ and with varying levels of experience. The course will benefit students wishing to study art, architecture or design at university as well as those who are already at university. Equally the course will provide an introduction to ambitious beginners with no design background.

Course aim

This course will provide students with the knowledge and skills set to make things to skill. We will also concentrate on documenting the work done over the ten days culminating in an impressive portfolio of work. This portfolio will be an invaluable piece of documentation when applying for under graduate and post graduate degrees in Fine art, design or architecture.
