Notice to ERASMUS students attending the Urban Design of City Centers module [CAD map]

Dear students,

We have successfully obtained CAD maps of your sites for the Urban Design of City Centers module. However, we have also been informed by the City Hall Surveying Department that we cannot simply post the map to our site for all to download freely because of licensing requirements. Therefore, we would like to ask You to select one person from each group and have that person write us an e-mail to our contact address: kontakt@a52.pl with a request and we will send the maps to those persons via a reply as soon as possible.

Please note that the maps are for educational use only and may not be shared with persons who are not currently studying at the Cracow University of Technology.

Kind regards,

Krzysztof Barnaś

SHARE Talks Kraków 2019
A visionary approach to the Future of Architecture!

SHARE TALKS Kraków 2019, with the theme “The future of Architecture”, will take place on
the 22nd of October at the Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology, Kraków. This edition is a closeup of the way architecture is evolving, and it brings lectures from an international panel of speakers. The event is organized alongside The Faculty of Architecture and Fine Arts, Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Krakow University, with the support of IARP Kraków, SARP Kraków, IARP Katowice and SARP Katowice.

Part of SHARE Architects 2019 European program, SHARE TALKS Kraków 2019 will feature lectures from international speakers followed by debates on the theme “The Future of Architecture”. The event will also host the launch of the book “Designing the profile of the future architect”.

Dear Erasmus Students, feel free to join the conference!

Urban Design of City Centres – welcome!

FOCUS – Urban design project presenting a design proposal of the development of a fragment of urban space

SUBJECT AND GOAL OF THE PROJECT, BASIC INFORMATION

Subject

The project’s subject is the development of an architectural and urban conceptual design proposal of the development of the space of a selected area on the urban and architectural scale. The assumptions concerning the land use programme of the proposal should take into consideration the specific conditions of the selected location.

Goal

The goal of the design task is mastering basic skills concerning the design of mixed-use urban complexes that, as a result of the assumed programme of development of various forms of use and the adopted functional and spatial solutions, are meant to:

  • play a significant role in the development of urban services,
  • affect the improvement of the quality of the space of the selected area and its surroundings,
  • obtain a clearly defined identity of the place.

The compositional assumptions of the project are to be coherent with the results of individually performed studies of the development conditions of the selected site. These studies should take into consideration the distinct characteristics of the space, its so-called urban buffer and the consequences of significant compositional and functional linkages between the proposed complex and the surroundings. The territorial and factual scope of the analysis of the context is determined individually (in cooperation with the design group instructor).

The proposed massings of new buildings should form a harmonious whole. They should refer to valuable elements of the existing urban structure. When developing new urban forms, the students should pursue the design of attractive public spaces so that they can become an important element of urban composition both on the scale of the proposed complex and in a broader context.

 

TASKS

 

  • analyse local conditions that are the consequences of a location’s distinct characteristics
  • define a draft land use programme of the space of the proposed city centre (with the placement of selected public and commercial services) and analyse its placement conditions through the lens of the principles of urban design
  • design a layout of buildings and public spaces that form an interesting urban composition;
  • ensure comfortable functional linkages, appropriately to the adopted programme of land use (the proposed layouts are to be functionally and technically correct and be concordant with the precepts of sustainable development);
  • design a legible circulation system that ensures good accessibility to the proposed area of the city centre, provide the safest possible internal connections, good permeability and concordance with the precepts of sustainable mobility.
  • provide a general outline of the architecture of a selected fragment of the proposed centre.

 

PROJECT SCOPE

The presentations should be prepared in PowerPoint, on a maximum of 4 slides each (the first two presentations, the third can utilise more). The first two presentations will have a strong emphasis on factual elements and solutions – so don’t go overboard with fancy graphics because it will only be a waste of time – we will not be grading the presentations based on how pretty they are. They have to be well thought out and legible.

The first presentation should feature an analysis of your project’s site from a planner’s/urban designer’s/architect’s point of view, focusing on the following elements:
– the location of the site within the city and its relationships with the city’s key elements (the city centre, major circulation nodes, significant structures/sites)
– the relations between the site and the areas in its immediate vicinity (circulation, access, visual elements, landmarks, barriers, building morphology, density, major functions, greenery, public spaces,etc.)
– functional and formal analysis (urban morphology relative to land use, the forms of use of buildings, building height, topography, composition, public spaces, circulation, etc.)
– analysis of the positive and negative elements of a site (areas in poor technical condition, underdeveloped areas, areas without spatial order, well-structured areas, areas that can serve as attractors/development stimulants, areas with good architecture, also – public spaces etc.)
– brief SWOT analysis
– brief conclusions in the form of a couple of sentences describing the problems the area has that can be addressed through an intervention (e.g. residential areas without clearly demarcated private/public zones, lack of public spaces, lack of basic services, spatial disorder etc.)

The entire presentation should take you no longer than 10-15 minutes to deliver.

Sheets:

  1. Linkages with the city, content-appropriate scale
  2. Synthesis of urban conditions—1:2000 (current land use within the borders of the site and within its urban buffer, physiognomic assessment, assessment of the cultural and natural environment, circulation scheme, assessment of the technical condition of buildings and greenery)
  3. Conceptual urban design proposal—drawn to a scale of 1:1000 or 1:2000 (can include schemes and ideograms, e.g. functional scheme, urban composition scheme, circulation system, greenery, public spaces, etc.)
  4. Conceptual architectural and urban design proposal of a selected fragment of the site, drawn to a scale of 1:500 (site development, general layout of ground floors)
  5. Technical sheet—cross-sections, facades, urban detail, drawn to a scale of 1:500
  6. Perspective views of the selected fragment, visualisations
  7. Conceptual sketches.
