Why choose this course?

These include green and water infrastructures, resilient and adaptive city strategies and the detailed design of places for people.

The module addresses project(s) at the strategic planning and regional, city scale. The module involves students both independently and in teams in the proposal of scenarios for development or regeneration at the strategic scale, and demands a critical comparative evaluation of the scenarios. Students are required to develop independent proposals based on this analysis and exploration. The module involves a study visit and engagement with appropriate agencies and players as appropriate and relevant. Topical issues and agendas are specifically highlighted. Group and interdisciplinary work is a very important component of the process because of the scale and breadth of investigation. Students individually develop detailed proposals within the wider terrain.
