The Inclusive and Sustainable Cities program with the Rethink the City course plays an essential role in exposing students and professionals to different contexts and practices. Learning from the Global South from a critical perspective is key for urban practitioners who wish to have a greater impact in reducing inequalities whilst shaping the future of cities.

Ramiro Levy , Co-founder and Coordinator of Cidade Ativa

To be able to provide adequate housing that will improve the living conditions of urban communities, it is crucial to understand the consequences of design approaches. Designing good and affordable housing is a major challenge for architects all over the world. The course Global Housing Design within the Inclusive and Sustainable Cities program provides clear and valuable insights on design decisions – not only to (future) designers, but also to planners and policymakers worldwide.

Francine Houben , Founding Partner and Creative Director of Mecanoo Architects

The Global Housing Design course within the Inclusive and Sustainable Cities program is extremely relevant, especially given the housing crisis that most countries in the world face today. By focussing on the dependencies of housing design, this course humanizes the production of housing and places it in its specific socio-economic and cultural context.
