Free Course in Urban Design – Walk, Experience, Design
The goal of the Urban Design: Walk, Experience, Design summer course – 2018/19 Edition – is to deepen the students knowledge and professional skills in urbanismo, and particularly in the sub-areas of urban design and requalification of deteriorated/underutilized áreas of the city. Starting from physical-spacial (field analyses), social (community of users and representatives), economic (market demands), and historic studies of the area, students will explore the existing potentials and develop strategic solutions for its development.

Utopias are often set outside scientific time. They can be set in the past or future, or even in mythical time. They comprise constructs of our imagination that can provide escape from everyday life. Yet by doing so they also highlight issues that render our world and our everyday life rather problematic. Can utopias therefore be considered as tools to improve this world? Or are they merely reactions against it?
