"The city is our living space, and so, it also serves us as a space for learning. While the modern city has evolved throughout the years, there was no corresponding educational framework that addressed what it means to live in the city and trained us for living in it. In the past, people had to learn basic skills for living in nature, like hunting, gathering, etc. Today we need to learn how to live in an urban environment and understand it. The curriculum we created focuses on aesthetics. But not in the sense of beautiful/not beautiful, but rather aesthetics that answers the question of how we use our senses and experience the space. In one word, our emphasis in the program is on observation.”
