EKA Urban Studies students Won in Canada

EKA Urban Studies students Aleyna Canpolat and Alp Õzalp have won second prize in a competition organised by The Canadian Academy of Architecture for Justice (CAAJ) “A New Frontier: The Contemporary Border Crossing”.

Their submission was part of the final project for the Urban Futures (UR7118) studio in Spring, where students aimed to rethink the prevailing ideas and imaginaries of how different states, communities and ecosocial assemblages are organised and how boundaries between are defined. Alp and Aleyna’s submission, Picnic 2.0, explores the process of commoning as a social practice, grounded in an architectural project at the border between Austria and Hungary. It draws on the two countries’ border histories, geopolitics of the Pan-European Picnic movement and considers local stakeholders in order to envisage a common future.
