Teaching and learning activities

In person



Urbanism 3 teaching is developed in a continuous workshop where theoretical and practical learning is integrated. The workshop includes two parts.

Desing Workshop. Its objective is to project a large-scale area through the following phases:

  • Morphological analysis of the area. Interpretive and proposal-oriented reading at 1/25,000 - 1/10,000 - 1/5,000 scales.
  • Masterplan. General structure of the area at 1/5,000 - 1/2,000 scales.
  • Specific micro-project. Plan at 1/1,000 - 1/500 scales, cross sections at 1/500 - 1/250 scales and volumetry.

Theory Workshop. Its objective is to provide theoretical content, models and instrumental bases to develop the large-scale project of the Design Workshop. Theoretical sessions are supplemented with specific practical exercises to support the theory. The exercises are developed in class.

Evaluation systems and criteria

In person



The evaluation will be continuous, and the ability to express in a synthetic and ordered way the contents corresponding to each of the phases of the Design Workshop will be assessed. The assimilation of the theoretical contents, the reference models and the instrumental bases provided by the Theory Workshop, and its application to the large-scale project of the Desing Workshop will be especially considered.

The evaluation of the Design Workshop represents 80% of the final grade.

The evaluation of the Theory Workshop represents 20% of the final grade.

It is considered essential for passing the subject:

  • Attendance at workshops. Absences will always have to be justified and can never exceed 15% of the course attendance. If this condition is not met, the student will not be able to continue the course.
  • Deliver all the exercises of the Theory Workshop and have a positive assessment of the whole.
  • Deliver and approve all the exercises of the Design Workshop.
