Regenerative Cities & De-Urban Design (Online Certificate Course)

Summary information

Regenerative Cities & De-Urban Design is a brand new design discipline that emphasises the effects of the recent massive urbanisation in transforming our world from a microbic scale to the global one. De-Urban Design re-imagines progressive changes in human settlements on an urban scale and envisions future cities and neighbourhoods as ethical, equitable, and ecocentric living habitats.
