PLAN 517 – Theory and Methods of Urban Design
Instructor & Supervisor: Erick Villagomez
Number of Positions: 1 (one)
Total Hours: 102 hours
Hourly Rate (Sep. 2019) for GTA I = $33.76; GTA II = $32.49

Application Closing Date: Friday, August 7, 2020 at 3:00 pm

As a course, PLAN 517 provides a preliminary overview of urbanism—history, theory, social science, etc.—mixed with some fundamentals of design. As such, a basic introduction to graphic techniques of representation (section, plan, model, 2D layout, etc.) is included as a part of the course. Be mindful, however, that this course is more concerned with “how to see the city as a designer”, how other theorists have seen the city, and becoming comfortable with multi-scalar thinking, rather than specifically designing the city or its spaces. That said, design exercises are also integrated within the course.

Graduate Teaching Assistant Duties:
This GTA position will require a number of duties including but not limited to online maintenance of the course content, design/graphic feedback to students, leading break-out sessions on design and theory related discussions.

Required Qualifications:
• Master of Advanced Studies in Architecture student or PhD student in Urban Design, Architecture or related field with an emphasis on/or interest in settlements.
• Strong knowledge of urban design/architecture theory and methods across spatial scales, different geographic contexts, and design disciplines
• Strong graphics and representation skills (drawing, painting, illustration, etc.)
• Experience with giving design/graphics feedback
• Urban design experience would be ideal.

How to Apply:
Please complete the attached application form and provide a current Curriculum Vitae (CV) indicating your academic and employment experience.

Application Deadline:
Please email all documents before Friday, August 7, 2020 at 3:00 pm to SCARP Reception (info.scarp@ubc.ca)
