Cities change over time.  Time is a crucial element in the formation of cities and the main recurring theme throughout this course. The course will focus on urban transformations and explore methods and tools to document, categorize and represent urban change, which is often intangible and difficult to grasp. Methods that planners and designers can use to make informed speculations will be examined, to understand past processes as well as shape future directions of development. A critical approach will be developed by the students towards future-facing design challenges in the purview of the built environment professions. 

Open to MUD students and other SALA graduate students.
