The Foundation Studio I will be dealing with the urban territory of Basel in autumn semester 2020. The complexity of the region with its rich variety of geology and vegetation, the political borders and an urge for urban renewal will be the background for the development of the design projects (selected design exercises will take place at other locations in Switzerland). The semester is composed of six modules, which are linked to the respective fundamental course, and a synthesis module:
