Many LTU students have gone to Germany - to do an internship with a German company, to learn the language at a Fachhochschule (a university of applied sciences) or to take a couple of classes there. Chris Nichols, (photo) e.g., studied Transportation Design and did an internship at VW and he gave a presentation via Skype from Germany. He is now working at Ford (Chris on YouTube). Kevin Meligan is at the Fachhochschule in Erlangen (near Nürnberg, in Baveria) close to the German roots of his family. And let's not forget Mechthild Heerde-Olind, who was born in Germany and eventually also got an M.A. in Architecture at LTU (Linkedin Info)

the idea of the Austrian architect, philosopher, and 'humanist' Friedrich Hundertwasser (Wikipedia Info). It is an attempt to build a more 'human'-friendly apartment building. Explore his concepts. Ideas like these point out the importance of designing our buildings and cities in a way which makes people feel more at home and which is more in tune with nature (->Urban planning - explore the new projects which might benefit Detroit and a lot of other cities)
