The Integrated Urban Planning course aims at giving students an overview on the transformation of the city and of planning approaches from the XX Century, looking in particular at the evolving relations between the city and forms of production.
Moving from an introduction on the origins of urban analysis, both from a physical and a social point of view, and on a reflection on the constitutive link between urban settlements, local societies and production patterns, the course will then focus on the recent transformation of workspaces both in metropolitan regions and in rural or inner areas.
The focus of the course will be the role of new workspaces in metropolitan regions and in rural and inner areas: this means that students will learn how to frame the relevant urban, social and economic transformations that have characterised the shift from an industrial to a post-industrial society in the last decades of the XX century, to then explore the many ways contemporary cities are shaped by production and consumption patterns, with the related phenomena of urban transformation, territorial fragility, risk of gentrification, substitution of existing populations, and spatial segregation. Invited guests, guided visits in Milano, and in-class exercise will allow students to study consequences and transformations occurring in contemporary cities.
Finally, the course will focus on the characters of new workplaces, in their relationships with their location, urban typologies, local economies and communities.
The course will be organised on a combination of ex-cathedra lessons, fieldwork and class exercise. Teachers will provide required readings at the end of each class.
Modalità di valutazione
There are two modalities for the evaluation, for attending and non-attending students.
For attending students, there will be a two-stage evaluation:
Group-work exercise (3 students per group) (40% of the mark): a. in-class discussion of a paper agreed upon with the teachers, b. and the delivery of a final presentation on new workplaces.
Individual exercise (60% of the mark): a. delivery of an individual critical essay and a short oral examination based on the topic of the essay.
For non-attending students, there will be the delivery of a critical essay on a topic provided by the teachers, and a final oral examination on the contents of the course.
