The content of the PM Laboratory

Along the PUPT training path the Project Management Laboratory is conceived as an opportunity for
students to reflect on viable and necessary reformulations of urban design activity in front of
the complexity of the contemporary city scenario.

The students are induced to face real difficulties and problems connected to the policy demands
emerging from critical and over-pressed metropolitan spaces and from territories under
transformation.

Particularly,
    in the first part of the Laboratory work through methodological lectures and case-studies
       presentations the teachers will accompany students to analyze problems of a specific area
       and to set up a work project;
    in the second part of the Laboratory work the teachers will assist students to develop their
       work project mainly through weekly reviews.
