After growth? a joint online course

Published at: 21 March 2021

After growth? a joint European postgraduate advanced online course on Contemporary European urbanism With M. Cremaschi, E. Verdeil Sciences Po Paris; C. Colomb, M. Raco, UCL London; A. Balducci, M. Bricocoli, Politecnico di Milano; T. Taşan-Kok, J. de Vries, University of Amsterdam.


A paradigm shift seems to be underway from traditional theories of urban growth, development and control to new options of planning for “slower”, “smarter”, and more socially and environmentally sustainable cities and regions. This jointly-taught European course will attempt to illuminate the practical and theoretical challenges faced by planning in the changing context of contemporary urbanism and its actual and possible role in reshaping European cities, regions and territories. The large cities where the participating institutions are based will be used as rich case-studies to explore those challenges.

The course will help students develop analytical skills and frameworks to compare planning systems, policies, practices and experiments in contemporary Europe. #planning #master #urbanisme #comparison #sustainability #cities
