What do Architects and Urban Planners do?


Are you interested in studying architecture or urban planning? This course will help you understand what spatial design professionals really do, so you can decide if this is the right profession for you. First, we’ll learn about the built environment, and the kinds of challenges and opportunities that architects and planners grapple with. Then we’ll discuss five short examples based on real projects. In each example, we will focus on the role played by different spatial design professionals, including urban planners, urban designers, landscape architects, architects and interior architects. You’ll gain a good understanding of what each spatial design profession does, so you can make an informed choice about what to study. The course will also be useful for anyone who needs to interact with spatial design professionals, and would like an insight into their different roles.
