The course proposes the adoption of a multi-methodology approach, debated in the management science literature (Mingers & Brocklesby 1997, Pidd 2004, Munro & Mingers, 2002, Franco and Lord 2010), such as the combined used of two or more methodologies (or part thereof) within a single, for tackling urban decision problems. The course illustrates how the notion of multi-methodology could be an effective means to tackle the complexity of real world situations where, besides the uncertainties referred to the ‘ordinary’ problems of modern and contemporary cities, there are in addiction new challenges for future cities. The first are connected to the fact that the project of an architectural/urban transformation has to do with uncertainties and implications connected to the working environment, values and correlated decisions. The latter refers to disruptive events around climate change, ICT, pandemics, at local and global scales, that are currently under debate in the cities and that represent a type of catastrophic event or just unknown in their effects. The specific methods proposed in the course are: Strategic Choice Approach (SCA, Friend and Hickling, 2005) and a Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA), with the support of visualisations. The module proposes theoretical lectures and an application of the methodological framework to a specific case study.

Modalità di esame:
Exam:
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam:
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
