The third of the series:
This was for me one of the modules which actually showed us the practical application of Urban Design and the various faucets that affect it. The role play of different agencies was evident during the entire module.
The best part of the module was that we had lecturers who were expert in the different faucets of urban design for eg: public realm, community issues, economics, health, transport. Also the various personal experience shared by them was instrumental in making all of think as to the extents the disciplines demand from an individual.
But on the contrary we do generate Design solution, in academic programmes , which are based on these principles, but at the same time are overlooked in order to have a better design. However the extent to which we can tweak the design can be judged from such a module series.
