Urban Planning and Territorial Development
Course Leader:
conf.dr.arh. Mihaela Negulescu
Teaching Staff:
Mihaela Hermina NEGULESCU Associate Professor PhD. Architect Urban Planner
Learning outcomes:

• Developing the holistic thinking and the skills in systemic, integrated approaches in spatial planning, taking into account its relevant determinations and influences from and on different other domains of the human development
• Achieving cross-disciplinary knowledge and logics, relevant for the spatial – urban and territorial- planning
• Developing the critical thinking, the appetite and abilities for long-life-learning, the adaptability to change by professional logic (not only accumulation of information)
• Understanding the role of the urban planner in interdisciplinary teams
 • Achieving a holistic thinking and a cross-disciplinary perspective on urban mobility issues (a systemic approach to mobility determinations and impacts from/on the different domains of human development: social, economic, natural and built environment)
• Achieving advanced skills for a new, innovative LUM (Land Use & Mobility) planning. This cross-disciplinary approach aims at: 1. Understanding how to conceive and plan urban forms (at different territorial levels) so as to be achieved spatial prerequisites for a sustainable (re)modelling of the mobility 2. Achieving a higher awareness of accessibility(ies) features and roles in urban dynamics, and also a better conceptual and methodological capacity for properly addressing it in spatial (regional and urban) planning
• Understanding the ideological, theoretical and practical changes in approaching urban mobility towards the logic of sustainability
• Acquaintance with the institutional, legislative and regulatory framework having relevance for the coordinated planning of urban form and urban mobility
• Understanding the role(s) of the urban planner in interdisciplinary teams for planning urban mobility (SUMPs teams)
• Achieving skills in planning mobility infrastructure
• Achieving a appropriate referrential framework for planning sustainable mobility, through a comprehensive and critical approach of specific best-practices in EU countries


1. THE NEW PARADIGM OF URBAN MOBILITY – ideological, theoretical and practical evolutions; “From a traffic logic towards a holistic approach of mobility”; “from the city unconditionally adapted to car’s growing requirements, to the city for peoples” / 2 hours
2. IDEOLOGICAL, LEGISLATIVE, REGULATORY AND FINANCIAL MOBILITY & TRANSPORT EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK - (the policy and regulatory documents, programs and funds) / 2hours
3. NEW CONCEPTS, METHODOLOGIES, MODELS AND TOOLS, OPERATIONAL FRAMEWORKs, for sustainably planning and remodeling mobility – SUMPs guidelines and existing best practices / 2 hours
4. KEY / INTERFACE CONCEPTS FOR LU&M APPROACH - (accessibility, distance-time, isochrones); How to use and/or (re)shape accessibility(ies) in urban planning / 2 hours
9-10. CASE STUDIES / best-practices of mobility reshape within different categories of urban operations, in different urban contexts / 4 hours
11. MANAGEMENT OF URBAN MOBILITY, integrate planning and sectorial policies - general approach (to be developped in „ Mobility policies and plans” couse)/ 2 hours
12. ROAD AND TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE, at different territorial levels (European, national, regional, local) – general approach / 2 hours
