NCKU Curriculum Map
1. 2.

The purpose of this International Urban Planning Studio is to help students get familiar with different planning systems and the implementation tools and practices. Each year the studio site will be based on the particular studio theme and chosen by the instructor and host institution. In the past we had studios on: Redeveloping the historical core of Korat, Thailand; developing an Agriculture-oriented enterprise zone in Seattle, USA; Working on the post-disaster reconstruction in Sichuan, China. The scale of the studio project might be varied from year to year, but in general it would be of interest to students with a prospective or current specialization in international planning, urban redevelopment, urban design and/or real estate development. Through a series of pre-assigned readings, seminars, field visits, meetings, Charrette and group works, the studio aims to assist students to gain prerequisite knowledge and get familiar with the procedures for operating international planning. Students will review existing master plans and initiatives, and ultimately develop several alternative scenarios for the comprehensive, integrated urban development of the entire project site. The studio participants would also be asked to develop comparative insights and lessons relating to current debates over the particular type of development in Taiwan. Partnering up and collaborating with the host institution students will be expected to challenge students to express their professional knowledge and skills in a non-native language. Through this studio, we expect student would see the world through a professional lens of urban planning and be sensitive to the context and the particular dynamic in urban development in different social, cultural, economic and political system.
