The French-American Online Design Schools Workshop is a collaborative workshop in which teams will be created with mixed groups of students. The main “studio” will be in homes, studios, and from the safety of where students have been sheltering. Students must do design from where they are, with whatever they have at hand.

French and American schools participating collaboratively and synchronously online over 3 days, in teams of three or four selected students (11 teams, for a total of 35 students). The goal is to open a dialog between the students from both sides of the Atlantic and with different backgrounds, and therefore the team will include students from different schools.

Design professors from ENSAD (France), PARSONS The New School (USA) and SVA (USA) will lead the workshop with students from their schools and Ecole ESTIENNE (France), ENSCI Les ateliers (France), ESAAT (France), ENSAAMA (France), Strate School of Design (France), PRATT Institute(USA), RISD (USA) and SAIC (USA).

Friday May 29th, 12-2pm ET / 6-8PM Paris time: 11 teams will present their projects.
The Jury Review will be conducted by Allan Chochinov, and will include Sophie Larger, Laurent Clavel and Anne Claire Duprat (French Embassy), Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat (WantedDesign), and guests from the design industry: Amelie Du Passage (Petite Friture), matali crasset (designer), John Edelman (former CEO, Design Within Reach), Julie Lasky (editor, critic and writer).
