Summary

Knowledge of how to articulate the "urban transition" is today urgently needed. The course reflects on the possibility of designing an urban space without negatively impacting on its water quality.

Content

Keywords

City-Territory, Urbanisation, Water cycle, Land use, Transition

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Assess / Evaluate a territorial condition
  • Sketch a design strategy
  • Describe an urban space
  • Analyze an urban water-cycle

Transversal skills

  • Plan and carry out activities in a way which makes optimal use of available time and other resources.
  • Set objectives and design an action plan to reach those objectives.
  • Communicate effectively with professionals from other disciplines.
  • Take responsibility for environmental impacts of her/ his actions and decisions.
  • Demonstrate the capacity for critical thinking
  • Demonstrate a capacity for creativity.

Teaching methods

The course will consist in an "Interdisciplinary Fieldwork Campaign" in which the students, supported by the teachers, will "experience" (on site), draw and critically analyze a portion of urbanised territory (previously selected).

A set of interdisciplinary, original maps, will be produced and commented by the students (work in groups). By the end of the week the students will be able to collectively reflect on "ad hoc" eco-urban design strategies, aiming at reinforcing the "ecosystemic functioning" of the analyzed territory and related water cycle.

Assessment methods

A final presentation and a small report (work in groups) will conclude the course and guide the evaluation.
