Place making is a project-based course that deals with the development of cities and urban areas.

Learning outcome

The goal is to create a basic understanding of place making in urban areas in terms of:
1. Understanding of how plans are developed and are legally binding.
2. Gathering and analyzing data.
3. Proposing plans and designs connected to different stages in the urban development. (Concept studies, zoning plans and design catalogues.)
4. Developing critical thinking about urban design and planning.


Planning in developed areas/existing environments is a complex and multidisciplinary task. The course deals with planning and/or renewal of areas in existing cities and towns. The course studies the aesthetic, technical and functional aspects of planning, programming and implementing of projects in municipal or private sector.
