Emerging Perspectives on Urban Morphology: Researching and Learning through multiple practices

EPUM 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.

PORTO INTENSIVE WORKSHOP – EMERGING PERSPECTIVES ON URBAN MORPHOLOGY

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 of the Porto Intensive Workshop is to effectively combine different morphological approaches – historico-geographical approach, process-typological approach, space syntax and relational approach – in the analysis of the physical form of the historical kernel of Porto and of the main challenges that it faces today. Drawing on the results of this workshop, the Nicosia Intensive Workshop will go one step further applying these combined approach in the design of one particular area in the city of Nicosia.
