EMiLA Summer Schools
In a rotation system, the five EMiLA partners take turns to organize this workshop, which is held once a year. Approx. 25 students and their teachers from the five EMiLA institutions work in international teams on topics of European landscape architecture. In addition, selected non-European universities are invited to take part in this 5- to 10-day workshop.
The themes of the EMiLA Summer School are decided on in close consultation with the regions where pressing issues need to be worked on. In all our Summer Schools we co-operate closely with regional stakeholders and non-specialists and speak with planners and residents. Each Summer School has a specific topic, focus and way of working. All EMiLA institutions and their students benefit from the variety of design methodologies as it leads to a continous improvement in teaching quality.
How the Summer School is integrated into the EMiLA curriculum can be seen here.
