Geoff is pleased to carry on lecturing at the Mundus Urbano master’s degree course at the Technical University Darmstadt, Germany in May 2020! Due to the corona-virus restrictions, the classes were undertaken online with the high motivation of the students of the programme.
The class was made up of 21 students from 13 different countries and very interdisciplinary backgrounds of (architects, environmental planners, civil engineers) and the week consisted of two parts.
In part one, daily Zoom sessions addressed the challenge of improving access to affordable land and housing and group work to analyze a situation based on real experience and prepare detailed design and financial proposals.
In part two, discussions, an exercise, and a film were seen issues of land tenure and property rights. This included a review of the literature, a methodological framework for analyzing existing tenure categories and a range of policy options.
At the end of the class, the presentations were given by the student groups and discussions were made with Geoff!
