In the summer of 2018, AMS Institute hosted several summer schools. The overall aim of the summer schools is to provide innovative education and deliver excellent, interdisciplinary engineers equipped with the theoretical basis and practical skills to tackle the complex challenges metropolitan areas have to deal with.
One of the summer schools hosted in 2018 was Integrated Mobility Challenges in Future Metropolitan Areas. For this summer school AMS Institute, the Delft Deltas, Infrastructures & Mobility Initiative (DIMI), the University of Paris-Est and ARENA Architectural Research Network, joined Delft University of Technology in the organization. This was a follow up of the Making the Metropolis edition held in Amsterdam in August 2017 and the Stations of the Future event held in Paris in March 2018. Integrated Mobility Challenges will explored interdisciplinary approaches towards a sustainable urban integration of rail-metro stations. By using Amsterdam (case of Sloterdijk station area) as test-bed and design location, students will exchange knowledge and apply different strategies of sustainable solutions. Here you can find a wrap-up of the summer school.
