about this course

Festivals contribute immensely to the human culture and the social structure that builds our communities. But the peak of cultural co-ordinance and a true sense of community – involving a spectrum of people, from kids to elders, how their traditions enable usage of space, etc., are seen at the market places. Setting different templates for multi-cultural festivities across the world, the interaction between the produces and user, the needs of the people and the demands of successfully celebrating a festival can be seen here. 


Urban Festivals have always played the role of key public places and activities in the evolution of cities and placemaking. These include hosting festivals in urban spaces – streets, thoroughfares, plazas, avenues, parks, verandas and most importantly the stores and markets. 


After cities getting hit by the pandemic, the only are with constant movement was the market areas, especially for festivities. In an attempt to retain traditions and culture in trying times like this, the need for responsible behaviour has increased exponentially.

The important question is how spaces with such high density could be redefined to celebrate these festivals even during a pandemic.

This International Design Studio aims to bring students and mentors across the world to understand and work on Indian, Korean Festivals and Ramadan in Dubai and how they can be rethought of in the new normal. 

Each participant will be guided by mentors across India, Dubai and South Korea, with multiple sessions and lectures on Cities and Festivals, Urban territory and spatial configurations of society and festivals in the Indian and Korean context – through various case studies and field exercises that can easily be conducted from home.
