Enhance the “Ordinary” – How to strengthen everyday landscapes in Alpine city regions

Salzburg (AT), Munich, Freising (DE)
22nd – 29th of September 2018

The autumn school is an international and interdisciplinary event on peri-urban landscapes in the Alpine region. Graduate students, young researchers and other young professionals are invited to spark their ideas for the enhancement of these “everyday landscapes” at the doorsteps of Alpine metropolises. From all applicants 24 young professionals from the Alpine countries Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, Slovenia as well as  from Poland, India, China, Russia, Hungary, Nigeria and Azerbaijan were seletcted.
As part of the EU-funded Interreg Project LOS_DAMA! and using the Salzburg and Munich regions as examples, the autumn school will draw, built and test tools for planning and governance of these “unspectacular” landscapes – together with local stakeholders and renowned scientists.

The Autumn School aims to provide young professionals with hands-on experiences on planning and governance of peri-urban landscapes and facilitate ideas for advancing current practice.
Under guidance researchers from the Technical University of Munich, the University of Tübingen and the Université Grenoble Alpes, accompanied by local tutors and lecturers from Munich, Salzburg and other Alpine regions, three groups of eight persons each will work in a studio setting and create and test tools for planning and governance of peri-urban landscapes in the Alpine region.
Next to delivering specific place-based ideas for the pilot areas in Salzburg and Munich, we will discuss the transferability of these suggestions to other areas in the Alpine region and beyond.
The results will be published in a multi-media online documentation that will live on after the Autumn School.
