The Future is here

Once again students from all over the globe gathered at KEA for the annual Charrette Workshop. Here they worked across disciplines and cultures to offer new concepts for urban living.

"60 fantastic young students from across the globe working with Urban Livability. We had a full week of hard work, hard studies, excursions into the city, and excursions into the future" 
- Carsten Bech, Centre for Future Studies

How do we predict the future? For the 2016 Charrette the participating students and lecturers gave it a try. The Centre of Future Studies (CIFF) in Copenhagen came with the brief and KEA instructed the students in Design Thinking. Armed with those tools, each of the 9 groups started developing a concept based on one of three megatrends identified by CIFF.
