Abstract: We have reached a point where the whole of the built environment has been claimed as the historic environment and all development is subject to the standards of sustainability. At the same time, urban design has reached a plateau of institutionalisation. Karl Kropf delves into the body of urban morphological theory to explore the substance of urban design and find new points of reference for debate and new sources of energy and impetus for design.

Biography: Karl Kropf is a Director of urban design at studio | REAL and a member of the Urban Morphology Research Group at the University of Birmingham. He also teaches a module at Oxford Brookes University on using the built environment as a design resource. His varied activities focus on the interplay between theory and practice and using one to inform the other. Kropf co-edited the book Theories and Manifestoes of Contemporary Architecture and is currently working on a Handbook of Urban Morphology.
