Urban environments lie at the heart of many of the greatest and most pressing global challenges we face today, from climate emergency, to social justice, health and the growth and distribution of wealth. The design of urban environments must therefore account for this global dimension as well.
The challenge is how, despite constraints and differences, to design our urban environments at a local, national and even global scale, to account for issues of health, justice and climate change in a syndemic (coordinated and coherent) and geographically significant way.
I propose that a redefined urban design, based on the pursuit of resilience and funded on the study of urban form from an evolutionary point of view, can help address the challenge. I will present the work of the Urban Design Studies Unit at the University of Strathclyde and its most recent advancements in both a descriptive and normative science of cities.
