What is City Design?
Pollution, congestion, security, energy or even well-being and health: the city of tomorrow is facing new challenges that redefine the design of homes, offices, public spaces and transportation that must be connected, multimodal and accessible to as many people as possible.
City Design addresses the rapid evolution of cities and their organizations; as well as the issues of tactical urban planning, adaptation of spaces, the connected city (smart city) and the fundamental role of the designer in the changes to come. The anthropocentric logic also integrates the fundamentals of an inclusive design that aims to start from the needs of individuals in their diversity.
- Street furniture(s) and micro-architectures,
- Scenography and layout of commercial, residential and office spaces
- Transportation of goods and people
- Development of infrastructures and temporary or permanent pedestrian spaces
Programs in City Design at L’École de design Nantes Atlantique
This program entirely taught in English encourages the exploration of French culture in an applied interdisciplinary context, and offers a great opportunity to carry out design projects in a multicultural context.
Within this program, students will be able to choose to work on projects linked to City Design.
Specifically tailored for international students who hold a Bachelor degree in design or equivalent, this program allows a good integration and a better approach of the methodology as taught at school through design practices.
