BACHELOR OF BUILT ENVIRONMENT IN URBAN DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT (BBENV. UDD).

Urban design is the process of shaping the physical setting for life in cities, towns and villages. It is the art of making places. It involves the design of buildings, groups of buildings, spaces and landscapes, and establishing the processes that make successful development possible. It is concerned with arrangement, appearance and functionality of towns and cities with particular interest in shape and uses of urban public space. It is therefore founded upon the social, environmental, political, aesthetic and economic importance of design in the public realm, serving the public interest. It focuses on the intersections between architecture, landscape architecture, planning and geography and infrastructure.

The four year Bachelor of Bachelor of Science in Urban Design and Development Course as offered by the Department of Urban and Regional Planning is project based with URBAN DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT as the central discipline. To this end, the Course Structure is pivoted around the design studio with lecture inputs in supporting subjects, aided by tutorials, seminars, field exercises and workshop instructions.

The Course aims to equip the student to comprehend urban design and development in order to carry out the following responsibilities:

Developing ‘visions’ for places – using creativity and imagination to invent or re-invent the environments we live and work in.

Designing built spaces – from whole towns and neighborhoods to individual streets or squares.
Advising on the design of developments and regeneration projects.

Researching and analyzing places and people – understanding the physical, political, economic, spatial and psychological context of the places you work with and the people who use them.

Influencing people by using your skills and knowledge to help others make better decisions and teach them how to make successful places.

Developing guidance and policies relating to the built environment.

Community consultation – helping the public to take part in planning and designing their neighborhoods.

Graphic representation – from sketching and technical drawing to using the latest technologies and packages in visualisation and computer aided design.
