Formal Analysis of Cities

The course introduces students to disciplinary approaches to urban design. Students learn how to read the city - its architecture, its content and its form. The main aim of the studio is to study various architectural typologies and their socio-economical and political ideas. Students will conduct a thorough formal analysis of the several urban projects and learn how different typologies are manifested in different cities. Students will develop critical thinking, acquire techniques of analysing and representing urban design ideas.
