Course Content

The course addresses the complexities of designing the living environments of cities and develops an understanding on collective housing along with the corresponding programs of social facilities and activity patterns. While providing students with the basic knowledge on architectural typologies of housing, the course aims to handle the problem of housing as a practice of spatial planning and design in urban context. As an experimental workshop, the course searches for a constructive relationship between architecture and urban design by generating rich, diverse and coherent housing areas as alternative to the current discourse and practice of mass housing.
