ICE Urban Design and Planning

ICE Urban Design and Planning announces a themed issue for 2016 regarding urban design education.

For the first time in human history, the majority of the world’s population lives in urban areas. From European and North American post-industrial cities to expanding mega-cities in Africa, South America and Asia and from established and new ‘global’ cities to the many forms of urban sprawl, settlement patterns across the world are undergoing rapid changes that carry profound implications for people’s relationships to community, culture, politics, the economy and the environment.

The 2015 Urban Design and Planning themed issue will include papers about the ways urban design education are preparing the next generation of urban designers to address the global conditions noted above – and others as identified by authors.

The deadline for abstracts is 1 November 2015. The deadline for manuscripts is 1 February 2016.
