The chair of urban design gives students the understanding of urban space, starting from the elementary language of space and atmospheric surroundings. Then it goes further on how to make assessments by taking the most appropriate tool of assessment including conducting interviews, taking pictures, sketches, GIS data, and so on, to translate the different problems according to detail assessment made, how to make rules or design frameworks according to problems assess and make visions and proposals according to the analysis framework.

Research:

The Urban Design Chair aspires to research on urban design interventions. For this understanding and interpreting environmental factors is one relevant for the industry in providing a more sustainable urban design strategy. Under this, there are contemporary and hot issues like climate change that need due consideration in order to cope up with the contemporary urban design challenges in this era.

The other factor is the issue of identity, which has to do mainly with the issue of maintaining and preserving indigenous qualities in urban design. This aspect is highly manifested by the nature of social spaces, which need to be studied and be given due consideration in order to come up with urban design solutions that are contextual in nature. A more bottom up approaches have to be given due consideration to come up with sustainable urban design solutions.

The chair offers to all interested researcher an opportunity for support in higher studies as Master and PhD thesis.
