Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for
participation in the module
The course module adds to integrated design knowledge obtained in
1st semester of the Master’s program in Urban Design engineering.
Therefore, the student is recommended to have knowledge, skills and
competencies within the urban design and engineering field
corresponding to the completion of the MSc01 level at the Urban
Design Engineering education.
Content, progress and pedagogy of the
This module focuses on theories and methods relating to site and
landscape, with the objective to investigate physical sites as
urban landscapes conditioned by spatial, functional, technical and
aesthetic properties. The course explores urban environments in
section as a mode of analysis and as method of designing; to
examine what is above and what is below the surface, as well as to
facilitate a transition from analysis to conceptual design in one
Students who complete the module:
- Must demonstrate proficient knowledge of site and landscape
analysis, site and landscape theories, and conceptual urban design,
observing technical, functional, spatial and aesthetic conditions
- Must be able to understand as well as academically reflect on
integration of selected technical, functional, spatial and
aesthetic conditions of sites to identify and discuss key
potentials, problems and concepts.
- Must master a wide range of methods and theories relating to
site and landscape analysis and conceptual urban design, herein the
spatial section as an integrated tool.
- Must proficiently be able to assess, select, adapt and apply
specific methods and theories in an integrated urban design site
and landscape analysis and conceptual design.
- Must be able to communicate site and landscape analysis and
conceptual design in proficiently written, visual, spatial and
- Must demonstrate proficiency in conducting a site and landscape
analysis, as well as a conceptual design, using the spatial section
as an integrated tool in the design process.
- Must independently, and in collaboration with others,
demonstrate responsibility towards integrating technical,
functional, spatial and aesthetic conditions of sites in an
analytical and conceptual urban design process.
