POSTPONED - Welcome to Urban Design with 3D Cadastre and Property Rights (2021)

Description: The development in mixed cities shows an ever-increasing focus on that mix different functions; businesses, different ownerships to homes, restaurants, cafes, shops etc. into the same urban area, all the way down to a mix of multiple features in the same building.  

The mixed city is both the realization of world goals (UN´s SDG) and local implementation of the city of the future. That is about developing cities in a sustainable way, socially and functionally, which ensures that creation vibrant and safe cities with a CO2-reducing lifestyle and shape. A mix of several functions in the same building presupposes a mixed ownership, which in turn presupposes property boundaries in three dimensions (3D property). 

The course enables the participants to use cases from the real world to examine institutions and public and private engagement in 3D real property. 

As a part of the course, the participants will be introduced to theories of property rights, theories of land administration and the social domain cadastral data models. Cases from Sweden, the Netherlands, Australia and Demark are presented which illustrate that cadastral management are closely linked to different institutional and regulatory models and actors in the different countries.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
