Tourism: New Uses for Old Territories

Postgraduate course. Face-to-face.

Presentation

5th EDITION
UPC School

This postgraduate course can be attended as part of the master's degree Landscape Architecture Extended or as part of the master's degree Landscape Architecture.

The graduate Course program is offered in response to a need to provide architects, and professionals related to the study of the territory, additional instrumentation suitable for the design of the landscape, in the specific subject of tourism treatment as a motor of territorial management. The course will be a choice of analysis and intervention on the landscape in a different way from the most common, derived from the study of the territori on a larger scale.
The demand for such studies is large and growing, and requires the proposal of a program like the one presented in order to output the current awareness of the landscape theme.

Aims

The academic objective responds to the current awareness regarding landscape issues and environmental intervention, in which different disciplines converge, some directly involved with the aesthetic and technical aspects of the intervention: the landscape, architecture, urbanism; others linked to civil engineering, agriculture and forestry; and other with scientific training in the fields of environmental science or planning to geography, economics, law, etc.
The master focuses on the design of the intervention and protection planning, but also in the transformation in natural and artificial landscapes. That is, in the design of parks and public spaces in the treatment of spaces that need to improve, be protected and restored, specifically in coastal systems and river areas, in the management and planning of the natural environment, and in environmental management when subjected to changes of use that substantially modify the area, as in the new agricultural and tourist areas.

Who is it for

The postgraduate course is aimed to young professionals who show interest in the landscape, especially in landscape graduates, university graduates in fields such as architecture, agronomy, geography, biology, engineering, etc. and graduates interested in landscape intervention.
Alternative also addresses to professionals trained in technical careers, that have followed their own training profiles related to this field (study abroad, postgraduate courses ...) sensitized by the intervention in the landscape.
It is aimed to young professionals and Spanish and foreign graduates who want to upgrade, recycle, deepen or broaden their education in the fields of instrumentation of design and landscape management. The studies facilitate the incorporation in interdisciplinary teams interested in this professional profile, with prior related training.

Content

Subjects

Taller D2. El Turismo: Nuevos Usos para Antíguos Territorios
9 ECTS. 63 teaching hours.

Second module of the Tourism Workshop: New Uses for Old Territories. A six-week course following the same line as the first module, working in places where the change in the use of the land strongly affects the landscape. Usually working in the same location, emphasising different aspects of the land and achieving projects which are different from the first ones but at the same time perfectly complementary. 

The workshop is structured around three basic areas of work and investigation developed at the same time: developing a deeper understanding of the complex effects of the tourism phenomenon on land and service industries through conferences by specialists in the field; systematising the study of landscape using conventional and non-conventional methods of landscape analysis suitable for the new generation of cartographers with the use of the Geographic Information Systems; and finally, exploring from inside the project the instruments for planning and management, trying out alternative materials and innovative touristic products.
Taller D1: El Turismo: Nuevos Usos para Antiguos Territorios
9 ECTS. 62 teaching hours.
First module of the Tourism Workshop: New Uses for Old Territories. A six-week course dealing with the ever increasing influence of tourism on the economy sector, but also its inevitable relationship with the landscape. Massive tourism, particularly the sun and beach model, has often been associated with property speculation and the exploitation of resources.
