The Urbanism track of the official MBArch, taught at the ETSAB, continues the experience of the official Urbanism Master of Research, with a long tradition and international recognition.
It covers, from different perspectives, the analysis of urban phenomena. It combines research with design, specialization with interdisciplinary approaches and theory with practice, offering new interpretations and areas of original reflection.
This track offers the necessary training complements for the PhD Program in Urbanism, distinguished since its inception with the Mention of Excellence, and opens therefore the possibility to continue with doctoral studies in Urbanism.
The growing complexity of urban phenomena and their interactions, the impact of new communication technologies on the relationship between city and territory, the increasingly important role at international scale, of large cities, require the elaboration of interpretation and intervention methods and instruments adapted to the new realities.
This line aims to train professionals to face the challenges of this contemporary urbanism and to attend to the development of new analysis and project tools to intervene in diverse contexts.
Barcelona constitutes an example of the best practice of urban planning in the world, perhaps the most interesting example of regeneration in the Western world today.
