The main objective of the curricular unit Espaço Espaço, Urban Environment and Safety is to enable the student to acquire knowledge about the built space and the urban environment that ensure the knowledge of the relationships that these factors establish with safety. In this sense it is important that the student becomes familiar with the built environment (territory), establishing relationships with security. In order to achieve the objective, it is important to transmit to the student: - The notion of territory, not only in its physical, but also social and administrative dimension; - The notion of built space; - The forms of representation of space (from a perspective of reading, but also of production - perception); - The risks (technological, human and social), their prevention in urban planning and security; - Urban design and safety (equipment and security feeling); - Security in buildings;

Teaching methodologies and assessment
The classes will be presential and, after a theoretical introduction, will be made the relation of this theory with the practice proposing the accomplishment of practical exercise, with presentation, for application of the concepts. During the school term, a visit will be proposed - both public space and built space - allowing the verification of the factors taught. The applied methodology will allow the student to understand the subjects using practical examples. The evaluation will consider, in addition to the participation in class and interest of the students: - the accomplishment of specific practical work, individual and in group - with its presentation / defense whenever applicable; - the writing of a written test on the subjects taught, which can be replaced by practical work.
