Call for Applications: HACK the TUM

The central areas of the Technical University of Munich are ready for disruption. How would you prototype a new vision of future university spaces? How can we transform – or hack – the university as a city block? Participate in the new „Urban Prototyping Lab“: Students can apply until April 16, 2021.

Discuss these topics in a high-impact course and experiment with alternative spatial potentials. Design and develop Urban Prototypes and test them in reallife settings at TUM. Together with experts from TUM and beyond, we run the Urban Prototyping Lab as a structured, interdisciplinary design workshop – understand, imagine, develop and test your vision. We will have impulse talks and insights from researchers, urban activists, decision makers, developers, architects in teams of Master’s degree students from architecture, design, management, informatics, engineering and sociology.
