REP-732 Urban Design for Developers Competence

3 Credits

This course provides students with a critical understanding of the practice of urban design and how urban design relates to the development process. The course begins with a review of the history of urban design and key urban design typologies and methodologies. It then considers the design issues related to the Layers of the City (buildings, public realm, circulation, and infrastructure) that are typically the object of urban design. Case studies illustrate how the Layers of the City are integrated with and supported by development projects. Lastly, the course evaluates the tools and methodologies used for generating urban design proposals, regulation urban form, and programming urban space.
