Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Taught thematically each lecture provides an opportunity for the student to learn about key issues underlying the development of modern city planning. The lectures begin by setting out the origins of the subject and then move on to the generics of the aesthetics, architecture, design and layout standards underpinning the application of such measures in the development of modern city planning. Each lecture refers case study material drawn from the experiences of modern city planning under the city beautiful and garden city movement in the capitals of Europe and North America. The tutorials reflect on these applications and the standards of architectural design they have laid out for the development of modern city planning.

Formative Assessment:
The provision of formative feedback is a key component of the LTA approach underpinning this module. Each tutorial allows students to engage with and reflect upon module themes via a series of different learning tasks. These provide opportunities for the module tutor to help with your understanding and interpretation of module topics. This happens in class time and in response to the issues raised in class. Formative feedback arises via the discussion and analysis of tutorial questions, practical examples/cases and associated reflection on a range of learning tasks.

Summative Assessment:
The assessments take the form of an essay designed to evaluate the student's understanding of planning and development. The assessments are set for weeks 8 and supported by tutorial classes designed to give the students an opportunity to plan their work, receive constructive criticism and act upon the comments received. The assessment shall address LOs 1-3. The assessment draws on literature found in textbooks and journal articles planning and development. The final assessment shall take the form of an Exam covering LOs 1-6.

The internationalist style and crisis of late modern city architecture, design and layout.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:

LO1: understand the aesthetic dimensions underlying the architecture, design and layout of the modern city.
LO2: know about the “city beautiful” and “garden city” models underlying the development of modern planning.
LO3: account for the alternative aesthetic, design and layout standards each of the models offers for the development of modern city planning.
LO4: develop an insight into how the development of modern planning has transformed the architecture, design and layout of city and personalities who have been key in developing these standards of modern city planning.
LO5: apply this critical insight to explain the crisis of the 'internationalist style' in modern city planning and challenges this poses.
LO6: critically reflect on the aesthetics, architecture, design and layout standards underlying the
development of modern city planning.
