We are pleased to announce that Think Up is now part of a pan-European initiative called the Knowledge Alliance for Advanced Urbanism (KAAU).
The organisations involved in the consortium are particularly interested in how the two disciplines of city planning and design can be brought closer together. KAAU aims to bring higher education and innovative business closer together by creating a space in which they can exchange knowledge and carry out research projects. KAAU will organise symposia, workshops and summer schools, and will design teaching resources all related to advanced urbanism.
Our partners in the organisation are: Università Degli Studi di Genova; the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalunya; Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier; Santa & Cole, Technilum, MCRIT, Intelligent Atlas, Ceasefire and our sister company, Useful Simple Projects.
Think Up’s role on the project team is to use our experience in built environment education to help manage the quality of the educational events and learning resources generated by the project. We are looking forward to working with a great team of people from across France, Spain and Italy, and to seeing the fruits of the project disseminated even further.
