Brave New Alps

stop. swap

2009

stop. swap, das Folgeprojekt von The Skills Workshop, ist eine Reihe von Workshops und Gesprächsrunden am RCA, die wir über den Zeitraum von einer Woche in Zusammenarbeit mit Ana Viegas organisiert haben. Das Projekt stellt den Versuch dar, die Grenzen zwischen den 20 Abteilungen des Colleges vorübergehend aufzubrechen.
stop. swap bringt Studenten diverser Gebiete zusammen und ermutigt sie, ihre gebietsspezifischen Methoden und Herangehensweisen mit anderen zu teilen. Der Workshop bildet einen nahrhaften Boden für Austausch und erleichtet somit künftige Kollaborationen zwischen Studenten verschiedener – jedoch benachbarter – Fachgebiete.
stop. swap ist ein Experiment, durch das wir einen möglichen Pfad der Design-Ausbildung erforschen, der auf Austausch und Zusammenarbeit zwischen verschiedenen Gebieten basiert. Wir glauben, dass die dabei entstehenden hybriden Ideen großes Potential für innovative Projekte enthalten.
