In the first part of the studio we focus on analyzing and designing streets, blocks and urban places, which are put together in a repertoire book. In the main part of the studio the purpose is to design a new urban structure (streets, urban blocks and plot division) for an urban area designated for intensification. The main goal for the new urban structure is to serve as a framework for a liveable urban area for mixed uses, with a clear identity and with high quality public and private space. The aim for the new urban structure is also to create added value for the adjoining areas. The project is to be presented in general overview plans and more detailed plans and perspectives for a part of the area.
