The course gives an introduction about the city region as a relevant scale for regional and urban development. The city region as a system og areas, functions, centres and interactions is the main topic of the course.

Learning outcome

After the course the students should have
  • knowledge about the city region as a concept that integreates the city with the larger context of regional interactions
  • an understandign of the city as a dynamic area where external and internal forces influence and change dwelling, working and traveling patterns
  • an understanding of the role that land use and transport planning has in terms of achieving urban sustainable development, reduce environmental issues and increase societal safety
  • knowledge about the defintion of dwelling, working, communitng or identity regions

After the coruse the students should be able to
  • develop scenarios and proposals for different future prospects of the city and the region
  • develop masterplans based in statistical data and prognosis
  • develop design programs for central areas in the regional and urban system
  • use GIS tools and make SWOT-analyses

Students should have general knowledge about
  • oral, written and graphic presentations about topics that relate to the city region, regional planning or long term land use and transport plans
  • discussions and arguments relating to urban sustainaiblity and relating measures and their relevance and effectiveness
  • independent investigations into the future of urban and regional development
