Teaching methods

The course will consist in two main part:

The maps produced will be commented by the students (work in groups) and will open to the second part of the course;

- The realization of some actions/interventions in the campus open spaces, according to the analysis realized and the discussion we will have with the EPFL-UNIL services.
