  • Urban Design
  • Urban Planning
  • Urban Studies
In this course, students will further engage design within varying scales of urban landscapes, within the framework of a neighborhood or other defined urban precinct. Students will develop a critical understanding of the urban context and a designer’s role in unearthing, framing, understanding, and influencing human interactions in urban natural and built systems. Starting with a multi-scale analysis, and continuing with developing concepts and visual responses to specific questions, students will map their own urban trajectories, practices and experiences, as well as those of other human and non-human actors in the city. In parallel with analyzing theoretical and built works, students will engage in multi-scalar inquiries and will deploy photography, video, diagramming, three dimensional modeling and online forms to document and represent their proposals in context.
