We are looking for motivated students for this multidisciplinary workshop. Every single discipline is welcomed. We need your specific knowledge and expertise for the development of our project. 

The workshop will consist of several lectures, where one will learn which aspects are essential when designing for a region sensitive to earthquakes. Some workshop parts are mandatory, yet others are optional. Several lectures will take place during lunchtime. These lectures are inspirational lectures from invited experts to broaden the understanding of the problem and help create a solution. As we work on a tight schedule due to the emergency, students will work in groups to efficiently design a final design for Türkiye and Syria. 

On Friday, 24th of March, students will present their designs. One final product, or a mix of several products, will be chosen for further development. Once finalised, we aim to send prototypes to Syria and Türkiye. 


Design goal:

  • Mid-long term
  • Modular housing system
  • Earthquake proof
  • Opportunity for locals to build themselves
  • Use of local materials
  • Villages surrounding cities


If you are interested in participating in the workshop, please register. Knowing how many students will participate is necessary to reserve sufficient rooms for the workshop and organise possible lunch and coffee breaks. You can also access the online information platform through your registration, on which optional case studies, lectures and videos will be posted. There is a limited number of places, so apply as quickly as possible!
