Public space and places, especially street space, are essential elements of the public realm in cities, towns, and villages. They are also the most valued spaces from a neighbourhood perspective. The design of urban, suburban, and rural places for meaningful public use and enjoyment is the focus of this urban design course.
The course will be highly interactive, mixing presentations with discussions and exercises, so that you can develop effective ways to approach the design or redesign of the public realm. You’ll develop the fundamental urban design skills of observation, analysis, documentation, idea generation, design development, and effective graphic presentation.
