In cooperation with the School of Architecture University of Detroit Mercy, SF:ius, is organizing a student workshop „Context matters“ from April 28th to May 3rd 2017. The workshop focuses on the (re)contextualization of undesirable socialist heritage, along with rethinking the conservation, survival and revival of those forgotten places.

Combining lectures with field trips and practical work the workshop provides a unique intensive course in urban planning and memorial architecture of socialism. It will include site visits to Petrova gora, Spomen-park Dotrščina with other Zagreb city memorial sites. In the course of the workshop, students will have the opportunity to produce their own design projects in international teams, suggesting possible revival or conservational solutions for the visited sites and present their final work publicly.

Workshops on photography, diagramming, site analysis and graphics/visualizing data will be organized by Professor Erika Lindsay from the School of Architecture, University Detroit Mercy.

The program also provides lectures about socio-political context, historical context, social heritage in post-socialist context and conservation, held by SF:ius members, in collaboration with other experts.
