Brief “… because collage is a method deriving its virtue from its irony, because it seems to be a technique using things and simultaneously disbelieving in them, it is also a strategy which can allow utopia to be dealt as image, to be dealt in with fragments without having to accept it in toto, which is further to suggest that collage could even be a strategy which, by supporting the utopian illusion of changelessness and finality, might even fuel a reality of change, motion, action and history.” ROWE, Colin, KOETTER, Fred, “Collage City”, p.149, the MIT press, 1983. According to Schwarzer: “Today’s cities no longer make sense. Maybe they should not make sense. Like post-modern society at large, cities are paradoxical and ambiguous, constantly mutating under the impact of new life-styles, fashions, technologies and view- points. They are the site of highly diverse interactions, rapid ¯ fluctuations of capital, hazy physical boundaries and seemingly irreconcilable architectural and urban movements.” SCHWARZER, Mitchell, “The Contemporary City in Four Movements”, p.127, California College of Arts and Crafts, 2010. We challenge you to creatively debate the city using the collage technique, exposing a criticism/satire of the existing reality and/or an alternative proposal to that reality. This should go along with a short description of your proposal, no more than 150 words.

What They Say

Manish Sonal, India
Winner of KTH Masters Challenge 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at KTH
“I was always reluctant in applying to foreign Universities due to my financial constraints. Today I am pursuing my Master’s in a subject which I love and feel more confident about my future.”
Saravanan Yuvaraja, India

“GE Light the Way Concepts for the future of Office Lighting Innovation Challenge Competition was one of my best life time experiences. This challenge had given me a chance to know exactly, what the organization is looking from the innovative student community for creating smart and sustainable world in the future.”
Arlisa Febriani, Indonesia
Winner of the Blue Bag Competition 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at Lund University
Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
Avon Haughton, USA
