This year’s Kaunas International Summer School, organised by Kaunas University of Technology, Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, Kaunas 2022, confronts our age of uncertainty. The global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus has touched the lives of everyone on the planet, especially those living in cities. In 2007 more people were living in cities than in rural areas. However, the pandemic has seen a reversal of this trend with some people seeking the space and isolation of the countryside. All our experiences over the last 18 months, is causing us to critically and profoundly re-evaluate our relationship with our friends, families and communities, and our homes, our neighbourhoods, our cities and our planet.
International summer school invites participants from architectural and other creative practices to analyse and decode an existing residential cityscape in order to develop new visions of future utopias.
