CARIBBEAN WINTER SCHOOL 2014
In Havana a period of transition and urban renewal is expected. Besides the renovation of existing buildings the substitution by new structures will become necessary in the central area of the metropolis. By these interventions urban life should be preserved in the central area of the metropolis in order to avoid the trans location of central activities to the outskirts.
The aim of the Caribbean Winter School 2014 is to discuss new design strategies for business incubation that meet the specific situation after the liberalization of economic policies in Cuba. The practicality of the strategies thus developed shall be tested by a design project in the quarter of “Centro Habana” with special focus on organization principles and the relationship to the built environment.
Aidin will use this experience to inform his thesis design proposal to be submitted in August.
