 2015 

Excerpt

India is poised to undergo an urban transition and must chart an urban development trajectory that will help achieve the aims of equity, inclusion and environmental sustainability. Some of the most significant challenges in this relate to the design and planning of settlements. Given this background and the need, the paper attempts a re-imagination of the design professional. It then presents pedagogic approaches and curricular elements for educating such professionals. The paper concludes with a case study of the Masters in Urban Practice (MUP) curriculum being developed for the Indian Institute for Human Settlements.
