CORE THEME

 In the name of The Mentor & Student Research Lab’s team, we are very pleased to invite you to participate in the third edition of The Mentor & Student Research Lab (MSRL) titled "The Public Spaces of Tomorrow" and answer this call. MSRL is organized jointly by the Faculty of Architecture at Gdansk University of Technology, the International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP), the Polish Society of Town Planners (TUP) and Brygada Urbanistyczno-Architektoniczna (BUA). As an established educational and research project (we invite you to read more on our website and attached brochure), MSRL will allow you to lead a dedicated team of students, in a research of your own design with the cooperation of a mentor. 

 

The main aim of MSRL is to create a space for collaboration between professionals and students in the field of urban studies. MSRL aims to provide a framework for the exchange of experience of the mentors with the initiative and creative energy of young designers and researchers. For the student participants, MSRL gives a good chance to gain research experience in an international work environment with the mentor's support; and the PhD students lead and supervision. For the participating mentors, the project creates an opportunity to conduct research in their field of expertise with the cooperation of a dedicated and enthusiastic team of local participants. The quality of the work is ensured through the supervision of the academic partners from the Gdansk University of Technology. 

We plan to work on the basis of the Public Space Manual, created in the first edition of the project. The Manual is a practical guidebook for designers. The public spaces act as a central focal point of social activities and impacts on the physical and mental well-being of the residents. Their use, physical character, social dimension is closely tied to the character of the city and its changes within the city. The aim of the project is to update the Manual taking into account the new and emerging practical aspects of public space design.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Ric Stephens, President, ISOCARP and former MSRL mentor
‘The Mentor&Student Research Lab is an extraordinary programme that combines

research, field work and collaborative design.

This integrated approach yields a variety of innovative findings, recommendations, as

well as planning and design solutions.
For everyone involved, it is a meaningful and memorable experience.’

 

Markus Appenzeller (Netherlands China), mentor
‘The MSRL program is a very good way for students to understand research and what it

could mean. It was both inspiring and fun to work with motivated people on a subject for

Ia limited amount of time and it would be great if there was an opportunity to expand that further.’

 

Christian Horn (France, Germany), mentor
‘A rare occasion for interested students to think out of the box and see the big picture.

And a challenging initiative based on the strong commitment of all participants and organisers.’

 

Oscar Bragos (Argentina), mentor
‘The program has designed and implemented an innovative modality, while attractive,

agile and dynamic, to produce studies on the contemporary city in a relatively short time.

A pattern of work that gets to bring students of different disciplines related to the study

of the organisation of cities. And along with those students achieve an interesting final

product.
It is a form of work that immediately puts students in contact with a particular problem, analyse it and interpret it. A new modality that should continue and be replicated elsewhere since IT manages to interest students in the exciting topic of the management of cities.’
