Study Space to Explore Warsaw in June 2015
Study Space VIII, a weeklong intensive workshop sponsored by Georgia State University College of Law’s Center for the Comparative Study for Metropolitan Growth, will take place at the University of Warsaw’s Foundation Centre of Disputes and Conflicts Resolution at the Faculty of Law in Poland during June 2015.
Study Space brings together scholars, government and private sector professionals to develop solutions to legal, social and policy challenges in urban areas. Study Space Poland will feature the incredible reconstruction of Warsaw in the post-war era. The program will provide historical and political context to the reconstruction of the city, and use the past as a guide to understanding today’s planning goals from a socio-economic perspective.
Study Space Poland will feature a number of lectures and site visits. For example, participants will visit the Old Town and learn about how paintings by Canaletto aided in the reconstruction of the city to its near original form.
Tours outside the Old City will demonstrate to participants how areas were redesigned during reconstruction to accommodate the growing city’s needs. Whereas lectures about housing issues and squatters and reprivitization will demonstrate the challenges of reconstruction.
Participants will gain a new perspective on creating resilient cities informed by the past and present while looking towards the future. This program is open to professionals and scholars around the world. For more information, contact Karen Johnston (J.D. ’08) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-413-9175.
