CUE Workshop on ‘New Directions for Urban Planning Education in India’, to be held by the Centre for Urban Equity (CUE) and Faculty of Planning, CEPT University on November 22-23, 2017 in Ahmedabad.

Wed 22 November 2017, 10:00 am – 06:00 pm

Thu 23 November 2017, 09:00 – 02:00 pm

This workshop is organized as part of “Building Inclusive Urban Communities” (BInUCom), a project funded under the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Program in the field of Capacity Building in Higher Education and anchored at the CUE, CEPT University. In this project, 4 Indian Higher Education Institutions collaborate with 3 European universities. The general aim of the project is to increase the relevance of architecture and planning studies in India for their wider socio-economic environment, especially by developing indigenous case studies and learning materials for the Indian context. This workshop focusses on the Planning Education.

The past two decades have witnessed an array of critical debates and perspectives on the role modern urban planning since its birth in the industrial city in the late nineteenth century in the global north, its transplantation in the global south and the impacts and the future role urban planning can play in bringing about inclusive, just and sustainable urban trajectories. In the global south, critiques have focused on how modern urban planning in the colonial period created dual cities based on colonialism’s divisions of class and race/ethnicity, which then continued in the post-Independence era through the continuities of both colonial-era planning legislation/ mechanisms/institutions and modernist visions rooted in notions of spatial order. These critiques have called attention to how urban exclusions in these cities are etched by modern urban planning in terms of formality/informality and legality/illegality. The debates have then translated into discussions on the content and pedagogy of urban planning education.

This workshop is an attempt to bring them together and contribute towards continuing the discussions about new directions that urban planning education needs to take in the specific context of India.

This research has been carried out under the Building Inclusive Urban Communities project, which is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union
