Open Call: Postgradual programme Alternative models for livingOpen Call:
ALTERNATIVE MODELS FOR LIVING
CANactions School, Brno University of Technology - Faculty of Architecture, the City of Warsaw, the Museum of
Modern Art in Warsaw, and the Romanian Order of Architects Bucharest, are introducing a new educational
post-graduate program, to embrace and establish international knowledge exchange between institutions and
organisations based in post-socialist states, in order to tackle 'Alternative Models' – for Collaboration, Ownership,
Governance, Polycentricity – in urban scenarios across their regions. The consideration of political, social, cultural, and
historical background in these cities and regions imposes questions, problems, and challenges universal to all of these
The program is exposed to the context of four countries — Czech Republic, Poland, Romania and Ukraine — in order
to explore their approaches for creating liveable cities, with the aim of proposing alternative models.
During the Program, participants are going to work on one selected sub-theme under the guidance of the theme's
respective institution and mentorship, as well as the location of the physical workshop. The continuous learning
process provides the possibility of knowledge exchange between workshop groups, as well as institutions, experts, and
mentors. Applicants are asked to select one sub-theme which directly assigns them under the guidance of the
institution and mentorship of that theme, as well as the location of the physical workshop.
