Aim of course

In the past decades, the tasks, scope of action and instruments of local planning have undergone a fundamental change. The prime focus nowadays is less on building cities from scratch and/or fundamentally remodelling their structure and more on shaping the development and design of the existing built environment. Spatial planning is required to help safeguard the existing urban structures in a sustainable manner and develop them in an innovative, forward-looking way. In in order to do this it is necessary to recognise the forces that shape the city and control and organise them through appropriate use of effective instruments. As a consequence, foresighted planning necessarily presupposes knowledge, expertise and a sense of responsibility on the part of the planners.

Subject of course

The objective of this series of lectures is to impart the necessary knowledge and capabilities with regard to the perception, usage and modification of cities and urban spaces. The lectures will focus on the following topics: - the history of the idea of the city and the effects of urban planning models on the morphology and structure of the city and urban living environments; - the readability and identifiability of the spatial and functional building blocks that make up the urban spatial and land use structure; - the development of the planning apparatus and an introduction to 'hard' and 'soft' instruments for dealing with planning tasks and problems. Using examples taken from municipal planning practice, the lectures build on one another and are designed to help sharpen students' awareness of the issues involved and familiarise them with the basic principles and instruments of local planning. The overall aim is to give students a solid basic overview of local planning.
