Urban Design

The course aims to produce students who can: think three-dimensionally and creatively manipulate space at the intermediate scale between architecture and planning; analyse the qualities of localities and places and respond to complex and often contradictory community aspirations; critically appraise development (built and proposed) and make suggestions for improvement, and develop improved policy and control practices; conceptualise and draw development proposals at different scales from the territorial to the block scale; be able to recognise and add quality in all development situations; test developments for their sustainability, economic viability and constituency; understand how to approach implementation through inter-professional and inter-agency collaboration and consensus building.
