Class Title Theories of Urban Design
Description The seminar is designed as a critical and collective inquiry into theories of urban design in order to develop an in-depth, interdisciplinary approach toward a more meaningful urban design for the future. Through a series of readings, discussions, case studies, presentations, and research work, students focus on deficiencies and opportunities in current urban design approaches, and formulate their own perspectives and strategies of urban form intervention, based on a critical understanding of the fundamental nature of cities versus the nature of thinking in the field of urban design.
