The aim of MUrCS is to integrate thematic knowledge and learning to address crucial technical, social, economic, ecological and institutional factors that contribute to sustainable, urban climate sensitive development and regeneration; thus, create change-oriented ‘new professionals‘.
Cohort 4 students demonstrated this via a Group project – masterplan for a specific area within the Huleva City suburban region of Aljaraque-Corrales that has a mix of urban/rural and industrial history, proximity to marine environment and key environmental and societal challenges.
Lay summaries of five student Groups are here.
Development project work
MUrCS intake 3 students were introduced to the suburban area of Mukkula, Finland, in autumn 2021 and worked in a development project to identify the strengths and weaknesses as well as the opportunities and threats of the area. They were also asked to constitute planning ideas for future development based on the Maptionnaire questionnaire with local residents and the interviews with local entrepreneurs.
