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.

The EPUM project organises a second International Workshop in Nicosia, Cyprus, in September 2019. Having as a starting point the complexity of factors that have shaped the city though time, the Nicosia Intensive Workshop seeks to understand conditions of the unsettled that have shaped the city’s urban form through time and the respective challenges posed today. The main goal is to effectively explore the potential application of combined morphological approaches – historico-geographical approach, process-typological approach, space syntax and relational approach – in the analysis of the physical form of the divided, historical core of the city and of the main challenges that it faces today and subsequently, in the design of one particular area adjacent to the city’s Buffer zone.
