This is the study programme for 2020/2021.


The course intends to develop knowledge and skills in working with spatial analysis and cityscape design. It contains the study of urban spaces and its identity, functionality, connections to urban structures, including of nature and programming.

Learning outcome

After completing the course the student should have
  • Knowledge about and sills withing shaping urban spaces, parks and green spaces
  • Understanding about external conditions that affect the design of urban space

After completing the course the student should be able to
  • Carry out spatial analyses of urban space, streets and places
  • Express different atmospheres through spatial compositions and form studies
  • Produce ideas and drafts - drawings and model studies of urban spaces
  • Specify drafts in terms of dimensions and materials

After completing the course the student should have general knowledge about
  • Presentation of ideas, drafts, analyses, concept proposals and model studies
  • Presentations of projects - orally and graphically with drawings, models and photo montages
