Within our series »Elements of the urban space« we will focus on urban housing. In the parishes Niederdorf, Sihlfeld, Unterstrass, Fluntern und Hirslanden, we will look at numerous housing types on the level of the metropolis, the neighborhood, the building and the urban detail. In doing so, we aim to gather criteria, that are fundamental to an urban living situation.
The aim of the seminar series is to provide a sound methodological approach in analyzing urban space on the scale of the metropolis, the neighborhood, the building and the urban detail. Through a series of neighborhood walks and excursions to the four major city archives, our students gain a methodological approach to city analysis. In the discourse of the seminar, we will gain fundamental criteria for the design of urban situations.
Our students will be provided with all material in digital form.
We will provide our students with a selection of literature and all necessary planning documents in digital form.
