A journey to a largely unknown country:
The bachelor thesis of the summer semester 2019 was preceded by a guided excursion to Cuba, which lasted several days and was attended by a large number of students as well as employees of the Faculty of Architecture of the RWTH Aachen, the Faculty of Architecture of the FH Aachen and the Faculty of Spatial Planning of the TU Dortmund.

In addition to design workshops, lectures and guided tours, a drawing excursion was also part of the programme. The participants were guided by Prof. Thomas Tünnemann, who teaches design at the FH Aachen.  Drawing tools were ink, charcoal, watercolour, pencil and gouache.

In the summer semester of 2019, drafts for an underused railway station area were developed on the basis of the findings of the excursion. These student works, in the course of the bachelor's theses, as well as further impressions of these courses will be exhibited from 23 October in the Ludwig Forum Aachen.

This exhibition will be accompanied by an introductory lecture by Prof. Dr. Jorge Peña Díaz of the CUJAE University in Cuba.
