About Urban & Environmental Theory Session

Organized in the framework of the MAS in Urban and Territorial Design, the sessions see invited guests address the theme of the semester: “Counterprojects of Coexistence”. The sessions, offering a combination of theoretical positions and professional design experience, address the challenges of spatial, social and energy transition through various contributions: from human geography, urban studies, spatial design, environmental studies and system thinking. Ranging in scale from the global to the local, focusing on the urban commons and ecological transition, each session sees the guests present their work followed by a moderated discussion together and with the audience.
