• This is Hello Wood’s tenth year organising summer universities and creative festivals for architects and creators, for you and for ourselves, thereby establishing an alternative architectural-educational platform and the foundations of a community!

  • Join us! Compose, present and build your own statements! Sketch the outlines of the kind of installation which represents a theme you find important, a theme which architecture, architects and this community of builders in the making are able to actively contribute to.

Alfredo Brillembourg 

Professors of Architecture and Urban Design ETH Zürich / GSAPP Columbia University N.Y.

Oren Liebermann

Professor of Architecture The University of Salford

Davide Trabucco


He received his Bachelor of Art and Architecture in 1984, and in 1986 his Master of Science in Architectural Design from Columbia University. In 1993, he founded the Urban Think Tank in Caracas, Venezuela. Since 1994, he is a member of the Venezuelan Architects and Engineers Association.

In the 1990's he established offices in both Frankfurt and Berlin. He has held teaching positions and professorial chairs in various institutions, and has been both Professor of Architecture and the Dean of the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture at the Arts University Bournemouth, UK (2009 – 2015). He was also Head of Architecture at Canterbury (University of the Creative Arts).

Oren was Hello Wood’s special guest lecturer in 2018 during the Cabin Fever Summer School at Csóromfölde.

He studied Architecture at the University of Ferrara and works as an artist to many projects. He took part in the group exhibition “Unfolding pavilion” during the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of the Biennale in Venice.  Since 2015 he has curated an online image research project:, which has had great echo online. 

Davide plays with the visual dialectics between recurring shapes in the fields of art, design, architecture. His  work focuses on the concepts of form and space, which he often uses as a critical investigation of the way we live and the images that accompany our daily life and our habits.

Since 2012 he has been a fellow at the Fondazione Collegio Artistico Venturoli in Bologna, where he has his own studio.
