With a point of departure in amongst others the Danish office of ADEPT’s approach, ‘The city in the building and the building in the city’ (ADEPT 2012), it is consequently the aim of this article to show how workshops can help shape and develop a spatial and architectural approach to form finding in the urban design scale. Secondly, the article will also show students that working with urban design on a large scale are also about designing. Thus, urban design is perceived as a discipline bridging the scales from that of the building over urban space to urban planning. The author of this article sees this as a key challenge if urban design is to avoid becoming stuck within a paradigm of designing urban life(styles).
