Learning Objectives

  • Laboratory of Urban and Regional Planning

    The “Laboratorio di Pianificazione Territoriale”, is aimed at providing students a set of analytical tools to analysing different features of city and territory and deliver a project on a specified area that is assigned at the begin of the Laboratory. During the Laboratorio students will analyse the assigned area with a set of traditional tools (land use maps) and more innovative techniques (land cover analysis). The laboratory is fully integrated with the “Pianificazione Territoriale” module.

    The course is structured in frontal lectures, exercises and supplementary seminars. Lectures frame the relation between theoretical and technical issues that characterise spatial planning. Best practices will be offered in the supplementary lectures. During the Atelier, students will be guided by teachers in a completing a set of assignments on urban analysis and design.
