Urban design and healthy cities

Air pollution, water access, sound and light, gentrification, inclusive design and equity in cities are growing challenges.

The Barcelona Urban Design Summer Program 2020 will center around urban health. Dense city neighborhoods will be mirrored with trips to the Pyrennes mountains and L’Empurda along the coast. A trip to the Alhambra in Granada will also explore Muslim and Jewish Traditions. Pritzker Prize RCR Arquitectes studio, associated gallery and works in Ripoll and Olot are visited as an example of top architecture and landscape design practice. The program will teach investigation and DESIGN methods for data-driven design including the use of mobile phones, Grasshopper / GIS and low-cost Arduino microprocessors are changing the way architects understand cities.

Summary

This nine-week summer urban design program in the Catalan city of Barcelona, Spain offers students insight into the measurement and design of urban relationships. In-situ work allows the integration of both existing and newly acquired datasets using architectural scaled software Rhino Grasshopper, associated plugins and custom scripts. These new design methods are supported by interaction with interdisciplinary local experts in planning, urban ecology, architecture, robotics, transit and landscape architecture. Classes meet at the CIEE study center in the heart of Barcelona near Plaza Catalunya. The location is ideal to experience urban living but near a beach.

Location: Barcelona is a world city dedicated to both urban design and the progressive application of computing to affect the everyday lives of people. The trust of the Catalan people in collective values is physically evident in the way they approach public space. Each year the city hosts the Mobile World Expo and Smart City Expo World Conference. Urban design in Barcelona is studied within three urban structure types: 1) the maritime metropolis planning of the 13th century gothic quarter and surrounding autonomous towns; 2) Ildefonse Cerda’s 19th century chamfered example grid extending the city ten fold and 3) contemporary planning strategies from the 1992 Olympic Games through the recent 22@ information activities district. Today the city integrates ideas of the autonomous village, the structure of the grid and contemporary planning into new ideas using smart city technology to plan pedestrian islands of ‘self-sufficient cities’ known as Superilles, or Super Blocks.

November 19 5:30 p.m.–6:30 p.m.
White Stag Block, White Box

Zannah Mae Matson, University of Oregon School of Architecture & Environment Faculty Fellow in Design for Spatial Justice; Visiting Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture

Focused on research into Colombia’s Marginal de la Selva, this talk explores themes of coloniality, the representation of landscapes of extended urbanization, and infrastructures of counterinsurgency to offer insights into how designers can read the spatial imprints of power within the landscape. The methods and research presented examine how centering the study of infrastructure in spatial research and design work can be a way to understand how power operates unevenly at different spatial scales and unexpectedly across messy temporal dimensions. Considered visually, the representation of infrastructural landscapes will be further discussed as a significant site of powerful narratives that are told and untold through contested visuality.

The event is free and open to the public. Light food and refreshments provided.
