Equipment and Context

The course offers the necessary instruments to provide a general vision of the role of street furniture in shaping public space and at the same time incorporate the criteria to develop an urban equipment product in the context of a public space project. Complementarily, work on skills in the representation and communication of an urban furniture project.

The contents of the subject are developed in the first part of the course with greater dedication to theoretical tasks such as lectures and the analysis of the public spaces under study, complemented with individual exercises of intervention strategy in public space. As the course progresses, the theoretical sessions lose weight, and more time is devoted to the workshop and to the corrections of projects.

Throughout the course, different authors or representatives of publishing companies are invited to present their professional experience and, occasionally, a visit to a manufacturer and publisher of urban furniture is scheduled.

Learning aims

Train the student in relation to learning to look at and read the public space and know the relationship that occurs between urban elements and the city both from the demand that it generates and from the capacity of those to make new spaces emerge and create a city.

Analyse how to adapt to spaces with specific conditions and become familiar with the basic principles of urban elements as a product.
