The Visiting school is an extraordinary travel, learning and networking experience as well as a credential for graduate studies and career opportunities. The course is focused on speculating architecture for MARS. The Wadi Rum desert, where Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian’ was filmed, is resemblant of Martian landscapes.
