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: fieldwork; identification of prospective principles.

Post-extraction territories in transition

The Seminar proposes a European and transatlantic dialogue around the questions of the social and ecological transition (post-carbon) of marginal spaces, and territories of exploitation as the ancient coal territories on the two sides of the Atlantic.

Tentacular Writing. A peer-to-peer Writing Retreat

This summer school renegotiates the ways we perform writing, as a format and as a practice. In the set-up of a collective retreat in the Swiss Alps, in a non-hierarchical learning format, a group of peers is invited to shape an academic community, work alongside and discuss their work-in-progress.

Hidden rivers

Hidden Rivers aims at fulfilling the need for an interdisciplinary understanding of the problematics surrounding urban streams, through ecological, hydrological, and spatial relationships found in riverscapes.
