Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Urban typology 1 provides a conceptual basis for urban architectural designing, focused on spatial, organizational, functional and operational, qualitative and quantitative aspects of individual types of urban structures, as various parts of settlements. Theoretical principles are based on the knowledge of historical development of urban structures and contemporary requirements for their development and transformation, including technical, environmental and social challenges. Particular emphasis is placed on current trends and the process of designing residential structures.
