Studies completed 5

Áedán finally completed his final exam at the ETH this summer and now rejoices in the title of “BSc ETH”. Congratulations!

There is unfortunately no picture as there is no ceremony or (so far) certificate to show for more than three years of study.

Meanwhile, Seán has started studying Psychology at the University of Bern after stopping his studies at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences.

Jacqueline and David spend a weekend in Engadin

We snapped up the chance to stay for a couple of nights in a friend’s house in Ardez. After nearly twenty weeks in lock down and home office, it was nice to get out of the house, even if it meant a three hour train journey with masks in a very full compartment. The village of Ardez is very pretty and calm and we did a couple of pleasant hikes to Lavin and Ftan. The weather played along too!

Summer can really come now – roof canopy renovated!

After eleven years the roof terrace canopy had finally had it. The new one is made of more robust material and has new gliders so that it is a lot easier to pull. And the yellow colour is just great!

Silver Wedding Anniversary!

On 23rd June 2020, David and Jacqueline celebrated their Silver Wedding. And on 26th June, a splendid celebration meal took place in “Isebähnli” with Seán and Áedán. Thanks, Áedán, for organising that!

David celebrated the completion of further studies this summer. Having gone back to university at the age of nearly sixty, David has now successfully completed his full MAS Strategic Design course at the Zurich University of the Arts, with distinction.

Here is a link to the thesis: Global Warming – Action, not Apathy and to the University announcement.

This follows completion of three Certificates of Advanced Studies in the past nearly three years:

  • CAS Design Cultures in the summer 2019
  • CAS Design Technologies in the summer of 2018
  • CAS Design Thinking in the spring of 2018.
