The Urban Design Master's Degree Program

This integrative, multi-disciplinary programme builds on the knowledge-based design project, with the objective of enriching the quality of the environment in cities through innovative design that relates to the theoretical study of the spatial structure of the form of the city. Situated in the city of Jerusalem, its multifaceted environment provides a living laboratory for diversified urban subjects, from world-level conservation elements, through the rehabilitation of the inner city to restoration, renewal and new development on the outskirts of the city. These uniquely-Jerusalem phenomena weave together an unusual, seemingly unequaled diversity of ethnic, religious and cultural populations. The studio classes will analyse and address other urban environments that possess noteworthy complexity.
