Studio for Immediate Spaces is a two-year Master’s programme dedicated to the wide range of space-related practices in times of radical global transformation. The programme treats space as both a theoretical entity and a real thing—continuously informing one another: To deal with space means to deal in space and to deal in space one needs to understand space as a form of discourse as well as the realm of action in the real world. As everything is changing these days, so is the discipline of spacemaking that needs to extend its scope to get involved with what is happening: From migration to ecology, from social equality to the public realm, space needs to be investigated in its political, economic, social, and aesthetic dimensions.  

The Studio for Immediate Spaces invites “undisciplinary spatialists” from all space-related disciplines with backgrounds in anthopology, architecture, art, design, sociology and beyond whose ambition is to design, plan, declare, perform and critically engage with contemporary spatial production. The Studio aims at exploring approaches that focus on the genesis and production of socially just and ecologically sound spatial configurations. Through extensive field investigations (excursions, studio visits, on-site workshops, location-specific method seminars), it is set up as a laboratory that tests ideas that have relevance for how we live today and how we could live tomorrow—aiming at establishing independent, critical spatial practices that actively participate in designing and shaping our urban age.
