EASA 2016 NYD
NIDA, LITHUANIA, 22.07 - 07.08
In the summer of 2016, from 22nd of July till 7th of August, up to 500 young, emerging architects from over 50 countries around Europe and beyond will gather up in Lithuania to take part in a 2-week festival of workshops, lectures, social interaction and monumental experiences.
NOT YET DECIDED
THEME OF EASA 2016
Natural beauty abounds here, and white-sand beaches are only a 2km walk away through hazy pine forests. To the south is the most impressive dune on the peninsula, Parnidis Dune (Parnidžio kopa), which has steps up to its 52m summit from where there are stunning views of rippling, untouched dunes stretching into Russia.
From the late 19th century a colony of artists drew inspiration from the area. Nida developed as a tourist resort and there were five hotels by the 1930s, when the German writer Thomas Mann (1875–1955) had a summer home built here. In 1965 French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre and companion Simone de Beauvoir were granted special permission by Khrushchev to spend five days on the dunes, and Lithuanian photographer Antanas Sutkus was allowed to shoot the pair in the sand.
The 30+ workshops that will take place during the two weeks will reflect the theme and location of the assembly.
Their ethic is in deliberate contrast to the usual introverted and competitive approach in university education, to the output orientated professional context, and expertise and elite approach of many other summer schools. It is the EASA spirit that joins all in a network without hierarchy.
