Courses

Theory of urbanism

Theory of Urbanism deals with models, projects, tools, planning and design techniques from the XVIIIth Century to the present day, by linking theoretical discourse and design, text and image. Urban models and projects are the testing ground of ideas and concepts in the form of spatial themes.

UE J : Territory and landscape

EU J introduces students to territorial analysis at the large scale, in the light of a research hypothesis. A sequence of operations is proposed: survey and description; identification of spatial principles (forms, rationalities and dynamics); comparison of different urban situations.

Hidden rivers

Hidden Rivers aims at fulfilling the need for an interdisciplinary understanding of the problematics around urban streams, through ecological, hydrological and spatial issues for urban rivers located in Lausanne; with the goal of generating new methods of conceiving the space of metropolitan rivers.
