Swiss Summer School at the Pavilion of Switzerland
A network that aims to rethink the current infrastructure of the production of knowledge for the approaching nonlinear, four-dimensional, and un-deterministic world

List of schools for the Swiss Summer School has been announced.

Following Lucius Burckhardt’s and Cedric Price’s critique of the traditional university system, Lucius Burckhardt and Cedric Price – A stroll through a fun palace will function as an architectural school under the leadership of Italian architect Stefano Boeri with Lorenza Baroncelli. They have invited some of the best architectural universities of the world to spend a week in the Pavilion, bringing their researches on some of the most interesting changes that are happening worldwide to the landscape. At the end of the week, they will leave behind the work they have developed, which will be used as a toolbox for subsequent visiting institutions, contributing to a growing archive of the Swiss Summer School.
While the archival material of Price and Burckhardt is gradually destroyed and transformed, the Swiss Summer School creates a new archive of ideas, an interlinked, gravitational centre for open questions and discussions.
