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 fourth Round Table of the EPUM project takes place during the AESOP 2019 conference in Venice and aims to further continue previous discussions of the benefits and challenges of applying the different morphological approaches to the teaching of urban morphology.

The roundtable will focus on contributions that seek to carve out connec­tions between social life and urban form, raising THE following questions: How is urban morphology (re)defined with regard to relational conceptualiza­tions of space? How is it approached and taught across different institu­tions and schools of thought? How can blended or face-to-face learning methodologies help to circumvent the shortcomings in studying urban morphologies in higher education?
