The 9th student Schlaun Competition Münster Train City was launched in August 2019. The jury did not meet until October 2021 due to multiple postponements caused by the lockdown. Out of a total of 87 entries in the urban design category from Hanover, Dortmund, Cologne, Wismar, Oldenburg, Darmstadt and Munich, three prizes and special mentions went to our students of the MSA in Münster. Congratulations to all the prize winners!
The Master Lectures take place in winter and are targeted at students in the Master’s programme. Current trends, new paradigms, burning issues and challenges of shaping urban futures are presented for discussion. The list of guests since 2017 can be found here in the archive:
