Aims

This module combines the strategic approach and the physical design, paying particular attention to the changes of the territory. The study is combined with courses on the theory of regional planning, regional economics, landscape ecology, methods and tools of regional design. The projects are based on information prepared in advance, so the students can manage to face rapidly the topic and work on their proposals in depth. The main issues to consider are the approach scenes, the new models and techniques to deal with territorial design, the use of heritage resources to improve local development, the importance of the morphology of the territory as the main criterion of design, or how mobility and infrastructure should be addressed to help regional development with environmental conscience.
