Teaching activities by OST

OST offers two Master course:

Urban geography

The course is conceived as an in-depth reflection about contemporary global urbanization, comparing actors, strategies and problems in European, Latin American and African cities. The aim is to offer architecture students theoretical and empirical insights about social problematics related to cities – public space, citizenship, right to the city, participation – with a comparative perspective and through an assessment between European and global South cities.

Spatial development

The course is a seminar in which the student must show commitment and imagination. The goal for the student-architect is twofold: a) to acquire the basics of spatial planning in Switzerland and Italy; b) to master GIS tools for project implementation (practical work in groups).
