This seminar takes a two part approach to learning about environmental dynamics as they relate to cities. Each week we will discuss readings that relate to ecosystem science and urban design frameworks. These classes are supplemented and reinforced with local and global examples. We are interested in how different frameworks are used to describe the complexity of our urban ecosystems. Our goal in this class is not only to become literate in the frameworks but to become sophisticated in our ability to integrate, given urban potentialities, ecology and urban design frameworks as tangible, spectacular and operational. Assignments will include two written papers plus the use of fieldwork, simple drawings and online tools to observe and engage change in a New York/New Jersey neighborhood.
