Course description

This course is designed to introduce students to ideas and concepts that help explain the multi-faceted forces that shape cities, their growth and urban life within them. The course will use a workshop format that includes brief lectures, readings and discussions, field trips, and a sequence of exercises to learn the basic methods and collaborative processes used in urban studies and planning. Students will not just learn about issues related to urban sustainability and equity, they will also explore ways to engage and act to build better places. Projects completed during the workshop will be exhibited, and grades will be based on overall performance in the workshop.
