The seminar is an observatory of contemporary urban development.
By analysing concrete examples and cases identified, developed and illustrated by the students, it aims to understand the processes underway, with a particular focus on the urban fringe, where the city of tomorrow is being built. It addresses issues of architecture and urban planning, as well as notions of landscape, identity, atmosphere and use. Through these different approaches, and with an emphasis on drawing, the students draw up a critical portrait of our urban environment and the spaces in which we live, on an intermediate scale where architecture and urban design are inseparable.
Lectures and seminars. Observation in situ, collectively and individually, followed by discussion and debate. Individual and group work. Lectures and presentations are given by teachers and invited guests. Students contribute to the compilation of an analysis of urban space in Geneva through a representation in the form of thematic representations.
