BERLIN: Architecture Program

Traditional | Berlin, Germany

Study Abroad Coordinator: Colleen Boyle (c.boyle@neu.edu)

Inspired by Berlin's fascinating architectural transformation and the prolific "often controversial" construction after the fall of the Wall, this program was created for the Architecture students. Berlin is a laboratory for design experimentation. This program acquaints students with the process of rebuilding in one of Europe's key cities and instills a critical attitude towards the physical and cultural context of architecture. Students contrast the recent ultra modern commercial and bureaucratic architecture with the corroded walls and incomplete spaces that still characterize much of the urban landscape.

Today's technologies allow architects to design for building sites they may never visit. What does it mean for an architect to propose a building or to rethink an urban situation in a foreign culture? How do architects develop an appropriate understanding of a place, its history and architecture, in the design process? In Berlin's turbulent context, students combine site analysis with their talent and intuition to design locally relevant solutions.
