Mastercourse City and Technology- ‚Future Mobility and Urban Design ‘,
Barcelona, Spain 2016

Applied studies and course projects on the relationship between mobility and urban design

Course description: 

“Particularly the rapid developments in our digital and technological capabilities require a rethinking of individual mobility on the one hand and urban planning methods on the other. Creating new interfaces between the city context and innovative technologies is one of the challenges for the immediate future.  

This course is designed to give participants the theoretical (methodology) and practical tools (available technologies) to create new ideas, scenarios, and business cases for context sensitive urban mobility in a real-life project”

Applied studies and projects on dynamic urban mobility planning (methodologies and digital tools) 

Course description: 

“We explore ways to generate user and context specific insights and develop integrated design solutions that merge transport and urban planning with service design and market strategy thinking. We design mobility and its interscalarity components; from the shape of a curb or a curvature radii to an entire part of a city.

Through the deployment of modelling simulation, demand analyses methods, and GIS analysis, the course will focus on the way mobility is represented and will explore the transformative effects at hand“

Lecture on the harmonization of technology develepment, city planning cycles, and space programming

Abstract: 

Technological advancement and urban growth offer a vast array of new opportunities to urbanites to enjoy their way of living: digital communication empowers the individual and changes the overall business framework, data processing capabilities turn infrastructure into on-demand services, growing population numbers mean more social interaction and transactions.  

At the same time, the demand for mobility and consequently ‘space’ increase the pressure on land-use and resources alike. Balancing the interests in this highly complex and dynamic multi-stakeholder marketplace is key to a city that wants to serve and connect its inhabitants and constituencies. 

The fundamental shift towards a comprehensive designing of the urban environment thus requires a look at all the different components and how they can work together.
