Urban and Rural Design

The aim of this course is to understand the processes of change in the built environment and the relationships between the social, economic and physical factors associated with the sustainable development of the built environment. This includes understanding and engaging with the views and perceptions of, sometimes competing, development interests. To strengthen the development of an understanding of concepts such as urban form and urban structure, scale, proportion, serial vision, permeability, legibility and composition as well as developing skills in relation to the use of precedents and best practice. It also aims to develop an awareness of the value dimension of design activity and the ethical responsibilities of those involved in design and development in mediating between differences in contexts of power.
