Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study General programmes
Course summary Explore the connections and tensions between the social and spatial dimensions of urban development.
Course description This three-week interdisciplinary course unravels the practice, theory, policies and politics of 'placemaking,' taking Amsterdam as a site for analysis and action. Placemaking is more than a method; it is a philosophy for the development and experience of cities, combining disciplines such as sociology, environmental psychology, (micro)political science, architecture and urban design. Situating placemaking in a mixed academic context, this course focuses on topics such as public space, community, diversity and 'the right to the city'. Gain new insights into the fundamental choices and challenges involved in shaping the city. A core component of the Everyday City and Beyond programme is the RapidLab, a studio in which students work together on a specific case study in Amsterdam. Across the three weeks, students develop the practical skills involved in a placemaking process. From start to finish, these include research skills such as observation, mapping and stakeholder analysis, process management and communication, and visual/tangible presentation methods. The interdisciplinary groups spend the afternoons doing field work and following workshops on and off site.
