Applications are open for the program offered by the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya

The Master in Regenerating Intermediate Landscapes at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) in Barcelona trains students in an emergent field of urbanism and regional planning devoted to the regeneration of complex contemporary landscapes. The studio-based program provides a unique methodology that encompasses practices from urban design to landscape architecture and works at a scale between neighborhood and region. It addresses very diverse challenges such as preserving cultural landscapes, regenerating informal settlements, retrofitting sprawl, designing waterfronts or transforming highways into civic axes, all with the aim of building a more efficient and sustainable metropolis.

Our design-based methodology is applicable to both the built and natural environment and is based on the traditional core values of European planning such as the care for local identity, ecology and social equity. The program offers the uniqueness of the architecture practice in Barcelona, in which architects are responsible for the design of all urban scales and planning, as well as a projectbased planning practice which has led to Barcelona’s well known urban transformations. Overall, the program integrates current research by international experts into a comprehensive, interdisciplinary and holistic approach where economics and management combine with ecology and culture.
