OPEN CALL: Sustainability Workshop 2021

May 27, 2021

The Norman Foster Foundation is selecting ten students to be awarded a scholarship for the first edition of the Sustainability Workshop, supported by the Rolex Institute.

How can the field of design shift its relationship with sustainability from one of scarcity and limitation towards abundance and possibility?

The Sustainability Workshop will take place from 18-22 October 2021, in Madrid, Spain. The workshop will bring together international experts and students to explore sustainable solutions for overarching topics such as climate change, the use of energy and resources, and their local and global implications. As usual, the Workshop will gather a team of ten scholars, drawn from diverse backgrounds of architecture, the arts and humanities, computational design and digital fabrication.

Grants will cover all transportation and accommodation related to the week-long event in Madrid, Spain. Scholars will engage with an interdisciplinary Academic Body formed by mentors ranging from industry professionals to academics. The NFF now welcomes submissions to select the participants of the Sustainability Workshop 2021.
