What is Urbanism at TU Delft ? (v. 2016)

Published on

This is a presentation where I introduce basic ideas on what is Urbanism at TU Delft and how it is taught. This presentation cannot be seen as the official view of the university on the subject. It is my interpretation of the course and reflects my understanding of the integration of the human sciences, the physical sciences and most particularly DESIGN in the course given at TU Delft. In this presentation, I take special care of explaining what are "objectives" of urbanism, so as to give prospective students a good notion of the tasks ahead.

Design Human Sciences Physical Sciences AR2U090 Methodology for Urbanism *Logics of Enquiry In this exercise, you will need to‘locate’yourself inthe hypothetical triangle that composes URBANISM at TU Delft. According to your previous education and aspirations for the future, where would you be? Mark a cross inside the triangle and write your name and country of origin near that cross. Would you add another element to this geometrical form? Is it a polygon? A square? What other categories would you add, if any? Urbanism?
