Berlin Glossary: Site Research Methodologies
Language requirements: min. English B2
In this immersive spatial course, students will learn to read and create the city – to communicate about urban themes across disciplines and media. We will analyze maps, watch films and make site visits, collecting materials and observations for follow-up research. We will use a sort of forensic methodology: collecting clues and patterns in order to put together the story of the city. Through this participatory process we will pinpoint the appearance of authorship, history, digitization, behavior, diversity, war, legislation, and political controversy.
