Reality Studio: Co-creating Change Makers


This seminar aims to inspire all course leaders and examiners through the sharing of experiences and reflections from Reality Studio, a masters course in architecture based on several years of international collaborations and partnerships in low and middle-income countries.

We also hope that future change makers, students at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers take the chance to learn more about Reality Studio and how it can be one way to develop skills and methods to realize change.

About Reality Studio
Reality Studio is an international educational platform in the Master Program Design and Planning Beyond Sustainability, at Chalmers University Architecture and Civil Engineering Department.
The mission of the studio is for the students, through their coursework, develop and plan for the implementation of resilient, culturally appropriate, healthy and innovative design solutions that support dignified human everyday life. These design solutions are situated in real-world extreme environments (often in a challenging foreign context), and co-created through collaboration with local communities, NGOs, universities, governmental institutions and other organisations.

Reality Studio aims to bring students into close contact with a range of global perspectives, and to learn and co-create spatial design approaches and methods to deal with challenges such as urban poverty, injustice, climate adaptation among others. The topic for Reality Studio 2021 is Cross-Cultural Collaborations: Extreme Environments during Pandemics´dealing with the message of Designing for Dignity.
