The Paris Summer School in Design at AUP gives students a unique chance to participate in an international teaching-led research workshop on design and performance. No prior knowledge of design is required, just a willingness to think on your feet, roll up your sleeves, and design objects, services and interfaces with other students and professors. The over-arching theme for the workshop–we like challenges!–is the design of living systems for migrating populations. Find out more about the program here and learn about the application process.
