Subject of course

Gender planning takes into account different demands and interests in the everyday life of different user groups at all planning levels and improves quality awareness in planning processes.

The current situation of gender planning in rural regions of Austria is to be examined across studies in spatial planning and architecture.
Existing gender planning approaches and projects (strategies, plans, concepts, ...) should be surveyed.
This is to take place on several planning levels of spatial planning/regional planning/urban planning (political public processes, urban development) as well as urban development/architecture (design, structural spatial design).
- Country
- Region
- Community
- Quarter
- Building site

Students are required to identify fields of intervention. Approaches and projects should be researched.

Results are to be documented and visualised in a structured way.

Teaching methods

- The students work as a "peer group" which supports and advises each other in the development of criteria and the research and documentation of the topic.
- The seminar enables the students to work in a largely self-organised, interactive and practice-oriented way.
- Creative development, visualisation and research through desk research and surveys/interviews.
- The results are prepared for a website.

Mode of examination


Additional information
