Lehrinhalte

This course will concentrate on in-depth aspects of public space as a location for events. Particular city areas and their distinctive patterns will be investigated. Particular consideration will be given to the dis-course about the differences between regions and cities. Particular attention will also be paid to the European Union's attempt to create new urban space designs such as the so-called macro-regions. With reference to base data for demographic change, concepts of glocalization will be discussed, in particular the implementation of urban structures within regional spaces. Selected examples of new urban architecture will also be explored, as well as the positive and negative aspects of the so-called “Bilbao effect”.
