Call for participation: Doctoral Course, Urban Regeneration and Industrial Heritage / EDAR

23 and 24 February 2023
Foyer SG, Campus EPFL 
Le Locle/ La Chaux-de-Fonds, Neuchâtel


15 PhD students attending the course will be selected based on a motivation letter and CV. Please send your proposal to 
[email protected] by January 15th, 2023.

The course Urban regeneration and Industrial Heritage seeks to tackle the challenges of industrial sites reuse, considering governance and heritage issues for territories. The aim is to combine current debates in the three polytechnics and different expertise to understand contemporary challenges and practices. 

The course explores different approaches to industrial heritage, from governance strategies to design and reuse processes, as well as the social and political implications of the urban and architectural legacy. The course offers a cross-disciplinary debate on current issues and challenges in the frame of a dialogue between the three polytechnics: EPFL, PoliMI and PoliTO.

Four axes guide this interdisciplinary course:
  • The urban regeneration and reuse of industrial sites: including the legacy of worker's social housing and other infrastructures;
  • Governance related to tangible and intangible industrial heritage policies at various scales: from grassroots to international regulations, and the discourses around its recognition;
  • The circulation of production models and transmission of technical knowledge to deconstruct dominant narratives;
  • Rethinking environmental and social sustainability:the impacts of industrialization and the new tools addressing the socio-ecological transition.
The application is open to PhD students in the fields of Architecture, Urbanism, Social Science, and Heritage Studies interested in industrial and post-industrial contexts.
