Syllabus

 

The syllabus builds upon the theoretical discourses and examples of urban renaissance and neighbourhood renewal discussed in the earlier module Urban Regeneration.

This project-based module is intended to develop skills of analysis, interpretation and policy prescription and plan-making, with an emphasis on either urban renaissance or neighbourhood renewal.

Projects are undertaken in small groups and each has a brief drawn up jointly by students, a supervisor and a ‘client’ (who could be a local authority or other public or private agency) commissioning the project.

The content of projects varies from year to year to ensure topicality and may have an area focus or a thematic focus depending upon circumstances.
