Course Description

Public building is the most common building type in our daily life as well as the container of the urban public life. Following the population and technology growth, the large public building is becoming the important part of the urban development, thus an important opportunity to change human’s lifestyle. Today, to take the large public building as the research object, to study their develop history, to discriminate different theories and thoughts, to review the gains and losses in different typical cases, and then, to prospect the future development is good to help students to start a preliminary thinking of the rule and trend of contemporary large public building and even the future city. This course is mainly focused on four topics: higher, bigger, more complex and denser, and introduces the main develop stages and theories of the world wide large public building as well as discusses the future development of high density sustainable vertical city. Despite of 4 topic lectures, this course arranges 5 special lectures to analyze the typical large public buildings in history. This course also arranges 3 case study courses, which allows students to share their research about the typical cases and discuss with classmates and teacher, and 1 field trip, which brings student to visit and investigate the real projects in the lecture within Shanghai urban context.
