Course content

Government advises that good planning and good design are inseparable; this course focuses on urban design as a part of town planning: you will study alongside postgraduate town planning students. Initial units cover the wider context of and the evolution of ideas of urban design; the core of the course is project work on sites where there are current urban design issues and we have links with the planning authority or a 'client' - we have worked on the hinterland of Bankside, Great Yarmouth Sea Front, and Central Hackney .
