NEW YORK, June 15, 2006 –Sixteen students from The City College of New York (CCNY) School of Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture (SAUDLA) will travel to Germany next week to begin a four-week exchange program at the Berlin University of Applied Sciences. 

The program, which will focus on “re-urbanization and sustainability,”  is the first offered by SAUDLA in partnership with the German institution.  It begins June 19 and runs through July 14.

“Travel and study abroad continues to be a significant factor in deepening and broadening our students’ intellectual growth,” said Alan Feigenberg, Professor of Architecture, who organized the trip and will accompany the students. “The program will provide our students an opportunity to develop professionally through an international perspective.”

Participating CCNY students will study and learn in collaboration with their German counterparts while sharing their unique skills and understanding for urban development.  They will also attend talks and lectures by German professors and distinguished professionals that focus on Berlin’s history, the reunification process and the city future as an urban center.

Working in conjunction with their German counterparts, they will develop design proposals for development of a site in downtown Berlin, while placing special emphasis on urban design and sustainability.  The proposals will be reviewed and critiqued by a panel of professors and distinguished professionals and will be exhibited both in Germany and at CCNY.
