Urban Architecture

Urban Architecture-Building Cities  

Almost everywhere in the world, the design process is undertaken by adults, while the end- users are often children, such is the case in parks, public areas and schools.

Why are homes located in a specific area? Why are shops, libraries, schools, businesses or factories located in another? How did someone decide where the roads would go, and how many lanes each road would have? How much park or open space is available to play in? Can you easily walk to a bus or train to get to your destination?

These are the questions that are going to be discussed during this program.  Each week we’ll focus on an element of Urban Designing of a city and children will build city district with simple materials.
