ASBN16 Sustainable Urban Landscape (15hec)
The semester in Sustainable Urban Landscapes deals with urban design in a wider perspective â€“ the whole urban landscape. Sustainable Urban Landscape starts out from the fact that cities of today are no longer isolated, but must be treated on a regional scale. This idea has produced new concepts such as The Network City (Manuel Castells) and The Regional City (Peter Calthorpe), the implication being that collective transports, roads and other infrastructure must be integrated and planned together with the urban structure.
Sustainability is not only a matter of environmental fit and effectiveness, it also implies the concept of Liveable Cities â€“ cities that are attractive to live and work in. How can we create cities that are at the same time environmentally sustainable in the long term, inclusive, socially diverse, and attractive to live it? This studio-based course introduces a design project beginning with the regional landscape scale. Students propose strategies for growth and move through scales down to the detailed design of urban landscapes.
