The EPUM project brings together different approaches on the study of the physical form of cities through innovative teaching. The project includes two intensive workshops, the first in Porto, Portugal, in September 2018, and the second in Nicosia, Cyprus, in June 2019. The main goal […]
Emerging Perspectives on Urban Morphology: Researching and Learning through multiple practicesEPUM is an international research project which aims at the integration of different urban form research and teaching approaches through pedagogic innovation and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The activities of this 28 months project (2017-2020) are funded by Erasmus+ and focus on the development of an innovative, open and inclusive system of teaching and training in urban form from a multidisciplinary perspective, capable of enabling the current and future generation of planning and design professionals to address comprehensively and effectively the variety of issues and challenges faced by contemporary cities. This website provides information about the project activities to partners and to other parties interested in the work of the project.
Mapping the state-of-the-art in urban form studies. EPUM partners worked collaboratively to identify and map the essential information on four different approaches to urban morphology, through a comprehensive literature review. Outcomes of this effort include four briefing papers describing each approach. Briefing Paper 1: Historico-Geographical […]
The first Round Table discussion of EPUM addresses the educational aspect of urban morphology. It aims at raising and debating issues around how urban morphology is approached and taught across different institutions, starting from how the basic definition of urban morphology varies across different organisations […]
A new seminar offered by TU Wien during the Spring semester 2018, will develop a dialectics between people’s unequal experiences of urban form and the spatial dynamics of constituting, negotiating and mobilising difference, considering systems of class, culture, gender, ethnicity and other. However, it will also reflect on the research practice as a means for curbing or fostering people’s social, cultural and political agency to transform spatial form.
The kick-off event of the international project “Emerging Perspectives on Urban Morphology: Researching and Learning through multiple practices” took place between December 12th-15th, in London, UK.
