Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

• To elaborate the challenges and potential of actual planning situations

• To derive trend-setting planning questions and to answer them with the means of modern urban planning

• To develop dedicated site-specific development strategies by discursively exploring different urban development guidelines (Asia-Europe) and to derive urban planning drafts from them

• Solve interdisciplinary planning and design tasks in international teams

• To adequately visualize and convey the results of the analysis and planning as well as creative implementation

Subject of course

The main teaching content is the confrontation with specific situations in urban conurbations as well as in urban peripheries or in rural areas. The drafting includes the critical analysis of the existing building, the discussion of general urban planning guidelines, the conception of site-specific development strategies, the development of urban planning drafts, as well as their visualization and presentation. The planning discussion ranges from the scale levels of regional and urban planning to questions from building typologies to urban design details.

   The actual work will be done by the students in a 2-week intensive workshop in September (probably 13.9.2020 - 25.9.2020). 

Since last year, the workshop is open to planning students. The lecture is done in cooperation with a lecture from the Architecture curriculum.

Both teaching staff and students are internationally staffed by partner universities:

  • Tongji University, Shanghai,
  • South East University Nanjing,
  • Univrsity of Shenzhen and
  • UNSW University Sydney.
