The course is an introduction to the planning and design of the urban landscape, emphasizing the spatial quality, scale and texture of cities. Urban form is studied as a complex system of building typologies, public domain, civic space, infrastructures and ecosystems. Students critically analyse cities as expressions of human responses to environmental conditions and processes. The course also focuses on the roles of landscape architecture and landscape planning in sustainable/green cities. Assessment tasks include seminars, international case studies analysis, and a major research paper.
