The course is a continuation of previous courses in urban planning in the context of physical planning. Its main focus is on the implementation of structure plans and, in particular, on ways to acquire and secure public spaces provided for in the plan.
The course is structured in a series of lectures of a theoretical content and practical application exercises. The exercises include two main (Recomputation Acts and Acts of Application of Urban Planning Studies) and some special topics. The aim is to acquire special knowledge on the issues of extension / revision of structure plans, through the implementation of the two Acts mentioned above.
Successful completion of the course requires that students have already acquired the knowledge of extension / revision of structure plans taught in the previous Town Planning Studios.
