Designing Healthy, Inclusive Places

Our teaching and learning efforts aim to further your understanding and skills to design healthy and inclusive cities. Our group offers an urban design studio, seminars, individual research modules and lectures as part of the urban design and planning team. You will learn to contextualize design problems in wider theory, historic and urban context and relevant practice examples, and will use techniques to change the perspective, i.e. »to slip into the shoes« of specific user groups, for example by using an aging suite or navigating the city as a person with a disability. We are keen to be creating opportunities for students to exchange their ideas with stakeholders and support you to develop your concepts and prototypes with the local community.
