Lernergebnisse

Nach positiver Absolvierung der Lehrveranstaltung sind Studierende in der Lage

After successful completion of the course, students are able to:

  • understand the core concepts of nanotourism

  • understand the current state of tourism and the role of architecture within it

  • develop levels of critical thinking

  • understand ideas in context

  • develop systematic research methods (sourcing, comprehending, distilling, communicating)

  • formulate, present and discuss arguments based on evidence and reason

  • develop public speaking and presentation skills

This will be achieved both through written, graphic and oral work. As work will be done in English, it will prepare students to express and develop their thoughts within the context of an international scientific discourse.

 

Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung

'Tourism is the march of stupidity. You’re expected to be stupid. The entire mechanism of the host country is geared to travellers acting stupidly. You walk around dazed, squinting into fold-out maps. You don’t know how to talk to people, how to get anywhere, what the money means, what time it is, what to eat or how to eat it. Being stupid is the pattern, the level and the norm. You can exist on this level for weeks and months without reprimand or dire consequence. Together with thousands, you are granted immunities and broad freedoms. You are an army of fools, wearing bright polyesters, riding camels, taking pictures of each other, haggard, dysenteric, thirsty. There is nothing to think about but the next shapeless event. “

 – Don DeLillo, The Names

The seminar will critically and systematically examine the contemporary notion of tourism through its resulting environmental, social and economic impact around the world and will evaluate its role and relevance for our planet in crisis. In particular, the seminar will source and analyse existing as well as new tourism alternatives through the lens of a concept called ‘nanotourism’.

nanotourism is a constructed term describing a creative critique to the current environmental, social and economic downsides of conventional tourism, defined as a participatory, locally oriented, bottom-up alternative. 

It operates as a social tool to stimulate mutual interaction between provider and user by co-creation or exchange of knowledge. It is not about scale, but is more an ability to construct locally-specific, responsible experiences from the bottom-up, using exclusively local resources.

Ultimately, nanotourism is beyond tourism: it is more an attitude to improve specific everyday environments and to stimulate new local economies.

A series of individual and collaborative presentations will focus on developing a collective, critical discussion based on the following criteria, which constitute the dictionary of what nanotourism is and is not.

critical I conformist

confronting current realities and presumptions of tourism

site-specific I site generic

extremely responsive to contexts, therefore perpetually unique

educative I non educative

stimulating knowledge exchange and creating development

inventive I conventional

progressive, adding new values and creating fresh potentials

responsible I irresponsible

non-intrusively related to the community and environment

bottom-up I top-down

processing local information to form higher level systems

local I global

produced with local support and supporting locals

participatory I passive

fostering co-creation and exchange between users and providers

social I unsocial
collaborative, community oriented and relating to people
