Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The goal of the course is to introduce students to the methods and tools needed to describe urban and territorial systems in a knowledge building perspective. Adequate descriptions of territories and their dynamics are crucial to better understand and manage the continuous transformations of the built and natural environments and the urban and rural areas. Such knowledge enhancement is needed to support and address public and private decision making towards the better possible strategies and solutions to deal with the existing built environments as well as in the light of the development of new built areas, also in the light of the more recent approaches regarding sustainable development, urban and territorial systems resilience to disasters and regional quality growth.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

The course aims at make students acquire competencies and skills about the following:

Knowledge and understanding. The course introduces students to a selection of methods and tools needed to describe, design images, recognize and understand dynamics and transformations and develop scenarios for urban and territorial systems at different scales in a planning and project perspective.

Applying knowledge and understanding. Students will acquire capabilities to:

  • develop territorial analysis from the technical and operational perspective;
  • introduce approaches and key elements to recognize and evaluate transformations and phenomena regarding urban and territorial systems at the international, national, regional and local levels;
  • offer interpretation and operational keys to design and assess a variety of intervention scenarios for the management of the built environment in a sustainable, smart and resilience perspective.

Making judgments. Students will acquire knowledge and tools needed to carry out a comprehensive assessment of the complex system of components who characterize urban and non-urban territorial areas, based on the understanding of concepts and on the use of analytical and evaluation methods and tools.

Communication skills. Students will acquire the correct language in the field of analysis of territorial areas, becoming able to master complex data systems, to build images of territorial areas useful to support decision making processes and to suggest innovative solution for the sustainable and resilient development of territorial areas. Students will be requested to prepare a case following the methodologies which will be introduced during the course and explain the results of their analysis.


Argomenti trattati

The course approach looks at urban and territorial systems as an integrated and complex system of resources, activities, actors and physical structures that interact and continuously transform themselves in territorial frameworks made by continuously changing economic, social and natural environments. The adequate knowledge of the characteristics and dynamics of urban and territorial systems becomes therefore a crucial element to support and address public and private action on territories. A goal connected to public choice analysis and private decision making related to the organization of territorial elements, the functions of land and buildings use, the localization and dimensioning of infrastructures, the quality and characteristics of built environments.

From the public administration point of view, the availability of adequate knowledge of territorial features, strength and weaknesses, main opportunities, risks and needs is crucial to obtain reliable scenarios of future developments. A basis for decision making concerning policy action, governance, planning and management of urban and territorial systems.

From the private agents’ point of view, good quality knowledge of urban and territorial specificities, demand for building activities and services (with specific elements and qualities) and potential future developments are needed to increase effectiveness and efficiency in real estate management and other territorially-based activities and investments.

The course work will be developed on two main fields: territorial analysis from an operational perspective and interpretative keys and approaches.

Concerning the operational field, methods and tools will be provided to:

  • identify the elements which characterize urban and territorial systems;
  • learn how to highlight characteristics and main specificities of urban and territorial systems;
  • develop analysis of urban systems and territorial regions highlighting strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats as a basis to design scenarios and identify potentials for the future;
  • produce adequate reports of territorial state of the art, using adequate tools to process and represent quantitative and qualitative data;
  • evaluation methods: identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in the light of different growth models and the enhancement of the values of the natural and cultural environments protection, sustainable development and resilience.

Concerning the interpretative keys and approaches:

  • looking at urban and territorial systems as complex systems of resources: methods and tools to identify and describe the resource system;
  • draw attention on urban and territorial systems in terms of opportunities and risks, looking at the interests of both public and private stakeholders;
  • history and development models of urban areas and analysis of the built environment: dynamics, planning, policies, new approaches and interpretative keys;
  • deepen the knowledge on approaches, models and interpretative keys looking at the maximum possible protection and valorization of natural and social capital, cultural heritage and public goods in a sustainable development and territorial resilience perspective.

Prerequisiti

Bachelor in which basic concepts of the evaluation and design of the built environment and territorial assets have been tackled in one or more courses.


Modalità di valutazione

The exam is made up of two parts, different for students which will decide to make a group class work, based on an experimental territorial analysis developed on a case study, and students which will decide not to make the class group work

Students doing the group class work:

  1. First part: a written exam. It will be based on the reading of 2 books from a bibliography list which will be provided at the starting of the course and the lessons given during the course. Students will have to discuss a subject and/or to answer to a question in 60 minutes. This will represent 1/3 of the final marks

  2. Second part: presentation of the class work. The presentation of the class work will be a 20 minutes speech with slides for each group. This will represent 2/3 of the final marks

Students not doing the group class work:

  1. First part: a written exam. It will be based on the reading of 2 books from a bibliography list which will be provided at the starting of the course and the lessons given during the course. Students will have to discuss a subject and/or to answer to a question in 60 minutes. This will represent 1/3 of the final marks

  2. Second part: a written exam. The students will have to answer to open questions based on the reading of another book from the list which will be provided at the starting of the course and the articles and other materials from the lessons which will be uploaded in a dedicated folder in the course on-line site, in the BEEP Platform. This will represent 2/3 of the final marks

Evaluation criteria will include the mastering of a correct professional language and critical understanding of concepts and their application in the examples carried out during the course. Students will have to demonstrate:

* the acquired knowledge about the topics of the course, with particular attention to theoretical and applied aspects of territorial analysis and to the understanding of the different approaches, methods and tools.

* their capabilities to apply the acquired knowledge and skills discussing examples, answering to questions and developing the group class work.
