CONTENT

This introduction to Urbanism shows the different perspectives we can have on urbanism. Each week we will explore a new approach to observe the city, to see how all these approaches interact with each other (or not). Different theories will be explained using examples in the time span from the ancient Greeks moving towards scenario planning for the future. Every week we will practice the theory on the case of your own neighborhood. In the end of the course you will hopefully have different look on those every-day seen streets and places!

Themes that we will discuss are for example morphology; the importance of the sub-surface; public-private debate; urban metabolism and the energy transition. You can shape your opinion about these themes in the course, as we will add discussions sessions when needed.
