Future cities and their imaginable designs bear more than their expressive outlooks. Design of cities do not initiate with the essence of how cities look alone, but eventually arrive to the point that that image of cities is questioned if serves to be the starting point of design process. That is, “we don't design to make things [future cities] look good; we don't use that as the starting point.” (Excerpt from Jake Dyson on ‘CSYS task light’).
This advanced module seeks to analyze and examine design and innovation that envision from variegated perspectives to improvise form, functions and meanings in strategic biomimicry urbanism that make up the basis for cities future.
This module emphasis the process of how current cities and architecture works by examining and analyse city design, infrastructure components, system and function, future operation design, space exploration and design, and particularly “find ways to dramatically improve them, with efficiency, with [technology] engineering, and with innovation.”[Emphasis added].
The elective has the following objectives:
1. Familiarize with urban design thinking and identify existing problems in cities;
2. Learn to integrate and devise appropriate tools to optimize evaluation on tenets of design principles and elements in current cities; and
3. Learn to redesign current cities with innovation in order to understand cities future.
