The module addresses the transformation of the built urban environment in which the notion of the compact city is a driving force. Emphasis is on integrating engineering techniques and urban design. In this context, the focus is to identify potential in existing built environments and to employ techniques for e.g. densification, climate adaptation and social inclusivity. These will be put into perspective for developing engineering based solutions to environmentally responsible design strategies and interventions.
