Simon Fraser University City Program – Urban Design Studio II: Synthesis of Urban Form (URBD779)

The second studio in the Urban Design Certificate builds upon the first by taking the process one step further to design and implementation. In this synthesis phase, participants will learn to build an urban design team and translate urban design analysis into preliminary concepts and choices for urban form, as well as to develop the ability to refine analysis and concepts into urban design alternatives that clearly address the elements of urban design. Learn to balance the physical considerations of place-making with the social and economic forces that also shape our future. This studio, with Burnaby’s UniverCity as the case study, provides an opportunity to take risks, experiment, and apply urban design skills and knowledge. It takes place Thursday to Saturday, June 7-9, 2012, 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. at the SFU Burnaby Campus, 8888 University Drive. Register at
