Place Alliance Summer School 2016

The very first Place Alliance Urban Design Summer School was held on 15/16/17 of September 2016 at University College London, and attracted 43 delegates.

The intensive three-day course provided a grounding in ideas about the nature, role and contemporary relevance of urban design and aimed at breaking down the barriers between built environment professions.

Each day focused on a different stage of the design process, from analysis to design concept, to coding and design review.
The programme was structured into a series of masterclasses over the three days, along with other activities such as workshops, site visits and networking.

The “Place Alliance Summer School Diary 2016” provides a summary of the Summer School daily activities in which we hope to have captured the spirit of the event and the energy and creativity of those three days. You can download a copy here.
