Geodesign A-to-Z: Evolution of a Syllabus for Architects and Engineers

The aim of this paper is to document and present a critical reflective review on the evolution of a syllabus1 of a Geodesign course at the Master level in an Italian Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering. The author discusses the urgency of fostering the uptake of such an approach due to the need of properly addressing Strategic Environmental Assessment principles which are nowadays mandatory in the planning practice in Europe, but often poorly applied. However, with reference to the Italian case study, evidence is given of low diffusion of teaching Geodesign. To address this issue, the evolution of a decade of a Geodesign syllabus for master programs in environmental engineering, architecture and civil engineering is presented highlighting opportunities for scalability, and demonstrating a workable way to introduce Geodesign teaching in architecture, engineering and planning schools where it is still lacking.
