CONTENT

The course gives insight in a broad range of contemporary Dutch perspectives on urbanism and the role the urbanist plays in the field of work. By means of a series of lectures by different specialist and offices, a variety of projects will be show and discussed. Apart from the content of (recent) projects, lecturers are also asked to give previews ‘behind the scenes’ how their approach can be successful, but also what kind of challenges they face. The students are challenged to develop their personal attitude toward urbanism by means of collectively mapping out the differences between the lecturers and individually position themselves within this professional debate.

 

During the first lecture on the 15th of January the course and assignments will be further introduced. Apart from pro-actively attending all the lectures the main assignment is to design a diagram in which the different roles an urbanist plays are elaborated and in which each lecturer is positioned. Before the final evening students also individually write a paper which has to be presented in ‘Pecha Kucha-style’ during the final discussion-evening.
