Transdisciplinary Learning Platform
elope - embedded learning oriented project environment
Master’s program in a transdisciplinary and international context
New Lead elope
Over the past four years, elope the learning and teaching platform for interdisciplinary and cross- cultural collaboration has become a focus in our Joint Master of Architecture program in Burgdorf.
Peter Bölsterli and Christoph Holliger will now be pursuing new challenges and are consequently handing over the lead to a new team. This consists of Key Kawamura with his Partner Ali Ganjavian from kgstudio and Kathrin Merz. Key, an internationally networked architect based in Lausanne is co-head of the multi-disciplinary creative platform Studio Banana. Kathrin is part of the original elope founding team. The elope crew is supported by Corina Ebeling of the JMA, who will take over the coaching of the students from Stanislas Zimmermann.
The Joint Master of Architecture would like to thank Peter Bölsterli and Christoph Holliger for their considerable legacy and wishes good luck for their future.
Interdisciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration are among the key competencies of today’s graduates. The training and teaching platform elope [embedded learning-oriented project environment] offers qualified students of the masters program the possibility to acquire such experiences. At the core of the project studios, focusing on a trans-disciplinary design process, is the implementation of real projects with actual clients. Students of different disciplines from an international network of universities work together by using advanced communication technologies.
The next project will start in September 2012
