Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the principles, formalized instruments and recent approaches of urban development, the history of planning cultures and the development of social changes in time in the context of the Central to South East European urbanized areas.


Subject of course

In order to bring together the two foci of the development of planning culture on the one hand and the effects of socio-political change onto space on the other hand, the course conceives urban space as a transitory social plastic, shaped by various socio-political and cultural factors. The two lines are presented as mutually affecting each other, exemplified through a series of case studies. The course transfers historical and theoretical knowledge in lectures, while the case studies are developed in seminars together with the students, who, actively retrace a specific situation in time, so as to look how changes in politics, in society, and in planning culture affect the social and the material production of space.
