Synopsis:

In the course of Urban Planning I, we teach students on how the cities were planned from ancient times to the present and how discipline itself have evolved in the course of time. By using the real examples, we describe urban planning as a complex process with numerous feedbacks that evolves in time and involves various actors with different values and interests and resources.

The course presents general principles and concepts of European spatial planning and planning system in the Czech Republic providing students with practical insight into relevant planning documents, legislation and institutions. Special lectures focus on actual topics: planning of urban ecosystems and participatory planning.

At the end of the semester students will be evaluated based on the presentation and discussion of their seminar work via TEAMS or in classroom. In their seminar works students will analyse and critically evaluate selected case of planning process in one of the following domains: Urban mobility, Housing, Public services, Ecosystems, Economic activities, Cultural heritage.
