Utopias  for
the  present

Flattening two curves: university in times of climate crisis and corona pandemic.

The Klimaschau shows the range of potential that could be tapped during the Klimasemester in summer 2020 at the University of Applied Sciences in order to collectively address the challenges of the climate crisis and develop transdisciplinary approaches and sustainable actions for the here and now.

Live event 07/17 – presentations of the courses & projects of the climate semester

On July 17, 2020, the results of the climate semester in the summer semester 2020 at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences will be presented live on Zoom, bringing the topic into discussion.

Ain't that good news

Ain’t that good news – Designing a visual newspaper section

How do we imagine dealing with climate and environmental issues in the section of a daily newspaper? What could such a visual series contribute to the topic, what should it trigger in the reader, what could its visual design look like and in which media format would it ideally transport its content?
Nutrition, climate and environmental protection

Nutrition, climate and environmental protection

What are the most climate-friendly ways of nutrition?
Stranger Living

Stranger Living – Are Dumb Cities the New Smart Cities?

What can a good, climate-friendly life in the city look like beyond the mainstream trends of future mobility and smart city concepts, and how can alternative scenarios be made tangible with the help of prototypes?
Educational architecture

Educational architecture – Participation in school building construction

How should we learn and teach in the future and which constructional effects will result from this?

Nuances and polarities of colours

Climate change can be observed in nature and is at the same time a hyper-object that eludes concrete imagination. Subjective color sensations and the parallel examination of climate research and its visualizations led to nuanced individual representations and team projects.
Slow Planet

Slow Planet

What could life on a post-pandemic Slow Planet look like?
Automated Stroll

Automated Stroll – Urban, design and strolling workshop

Strolling workshop, Foot Camp, teaching canapé? The experimental seminar provides compact, active and public skills in the following areas: Strollology, urbanism and architecture, design history and theory, prototyping, transdisciplinarity, mobility and automated driving, social movements, public engagement and participation. How can we respond to climate change and related technological innovations?

Resilience and transformation of urban structures

Resilience describes the ability of a complex system to return to the initial state despite strong external disturbances or to establish a new system state which even shows an improved system behaviour compared to the initial state.


What will the wind turbines of the future look like?
Planetary Scrollytelling

Planetary Scrollytelling – Visual data essays about system earth

How can the concept of planetary boundaries become tangible with visualised data and concrete examples?
Marina Tkhorzhevskaia
