The courses will consist of both lectures and open discussions where the students will learn how to form and express their professional opinions about various aspects of urban design and it will hone their analyzing and critical skills. Overall the course will place significant emphasis on showing and studying real life examples of cities and public spaces from all over the world and researching the contemporary design principles and ideas. Students will also learn about how the urban design can influence the people, their behavior within the city and their life.
