Building Bridges between Urban Morphology and Urban Design - Sveriges ArkitekterSveriges Arkitekter

Open lecture by Stephen Marshall, Bartlett School of Planning, University College London. ​Urban morphology and urban design are, or should be, closely linked; however, the nature and necessity of the link is not always clear. For example, to what extent does urban design need urban morphology, and vice versa?

​– In this lecture I investigate different ways of interpreting urban morphology and urban design and how they might better be linked. First I consider the nature of urban morphology and urban design and their essential similarities and differences. In doing so I consider one as a science while the other is more of an art, or political act. Also considered is the extent to which morphology is academically grounded, while design is essentially practice oriented.
