City of the Future

City of the Future is a multidisciplinary graduation studio focusing on the central question: how to design and develop in an integrated way a transformation area into an attractive future urban environment? It is motivated by urgent social / local issues varying among housing demand, social inclusiveness, new economy, climate adaptation, and the transitions in the areas of energy, mobility, circularity, automation and digitization.

Students of different MSc tracks will be dealing with various matters (e.g. spatial, policy, energy, societal) sharing insights and perspectives about the multifaceted future challenges of urban environments. Students will work together also in designing part of their own study pathway by means of workshops, lectures, excursions and other (extra)curricular activities.
