RE-DWELL Summer School 1 (Nicosia)

Published on 13-03-2022

The first of the three planned summer schools, organized by the University of Cyprus (UCY), was carried out in Nicosia, from November 15 to 20, 2021. This report focuses on the results of this summer school.

The theme of the summer school, “Planning, Design and Retrofitting of Affordable and Sustainable Housing”, was thus addressed from multiple perspectives through presentations from invited speakers from professional practice, academia, the local partner organisation and the local municipalities.

 The programme of activities enabled a follow-up on the development of ESR’s research through training activities related to the ongoing structured courses (two sessions on “Research, Methods and Tools 1” and “Transferrable Skills 1”). The presentations were followed by insightful group discussions and were complemented by site visits to the Nicosia Master Plan’s regeneration projects (north and south Nicosia) and the local partner organisation’s (CLDC, Cyprus Land Development Corporation) housing projects in the city of Limassol.


A roundtable to discuss “The design of affordable and sustainable housing: challenges and opportunities” was open to the public via an online session.
