About this Event

Urban morphology and design intuition

Sometimes it is not obvious why a place works but you just sense that it does. That feeling – an intuition – is the product of our finely tuned capacities for sensing the character and quality of places. How do we make best use of them for design? This talk will explore the relationship between design intuition and urban morphology as a set of systematic tools for understanding the built environment and argues that each is stronger when supported by the other.
