This unit addresses history of urban design and planning with particular focus on concepts of urbanity, design and complex relationships between urban and architectural scales. An overview of the development of ideas in planning and design is provided with analysis and discussion on future strategies and directions of urban, architecture and cities. Attention is drawn to the relationships between architectural and urban scales and their positions in terms of progress, culture, tradition, sustainability and future.
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. Analyse and compare various theoretical approaches to design, planning and architecture;
2. Apply theoretical positions in the critical evaluation of places and architecture;
3. Illustrate and debate the complex values in design of cities and architecture; and
4. Report and conduct individual research and develop analytical skills in writing essays on selected buildings, theory and history, using appropriate conventions of research and writing.
