Inspired by the figure of the wandering journeyman (Wandergeselle),
who gained experience in a craft by travelling from town to town,
students carry out field projects in other cities and countries.

Design for the Living World is a research-based, cross-disciplinary
course focused on participatory design projects in which students
collaborate with local residents in the tradition of learning by
doing. They research a particular environment (environmental
challenges, the social and political situation) and develop projects
that address local design challenges and seek sustainable
solutions. Art/design = relational object.
