summary This paper aims to address design education issues, with a focus on the way the contemporary metropolis is conceived. We understand the reality of the contemporary metropolis as an amalgam of specific issues that transcend local and regional contexts, converging into the categories of the so-called ‘global cities’. These new urban realities derive from territories originally controlled by other logics, and are now in new stages of post-industrial development. Thus, we notice the presence of large peripheral areas where existing industrial activities initially took place, which were later transformed and migrated, leaving behind urban fragments that are taken over by informal activities. Such sites are often crossed, when not ‘on-winged’, by transport infrastructure, increasingly essential to the growing intensity of metropolitan flows. Working with this new reality clearly means first and foremost to reexamine the tools and traditional methods of design and representation of the architect and urban planner.
