ARCHEA_Architectural European Medium-sized City Arrangement
The Open Space of the European medium-sized city is recognized as a psychological, sociological and aesthetic High Quality Space. For this reason it can be assumed as a resource to conserve and develop consciously and as model to value the livability of the urban anthropic environment inside a Global Strategy of Sustainable Development.
The ARCHEA project relays on a constructive cooperation and integration between five Universities, research institutes and organizations all providing strong expertise in the field of urban studies, urban space quality evaluation and Distance Learning.
Indeed the project proposes to develop, test and implement an Higher Education programme structured in a flexible blended learning path on study, quality evaluation and the design of the Open Space of the European medium-sized city, which mixes e-learning courses (OER-MOOC) and practical activities planned for the phisical mobility (Intensive Programmes for Learners, i.e. Architectural Design Workshops).
A platform available for a wide number of people which will have the possibility to gain skills on study, quality evaluation and the design of the Open Space of the European medium-sized city. A high number of students will benefit the courses on e-learning platform as these courses will be recognized and validated as ECTS by each partner institution.
Modular resources that can be used and re-used to support learning activities for Urban Design study and for Architecture of the city. Since the main outputs the project foresees are teaching materials that will be available as “open learning objects”, a wide number of persons besides students, such as private and public operators in the field of urban planning and design, will be potential beneficiary.
Students can participate to practical activities organized by the partner universities. The project includes the organization of two Intensive Study Programmes as part of the flexible blended programme taking the form of Architectural Design Workshops focused on developing skills and knowledge on topics treated in the e-learning courses. Architecture students will be selected through an open call.
Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union
