PLAN-725A Parks & Open Space

3 Credits

This is a lecture and workshop exploring programming, planning and design concepts of urban open space. The scope of design projects becomes progressively larger throughout the semester, starting with small recreation areas, corporate plazas and cultural facilities, and leading to the programming, planning and design of pedestrian malls, waterfront rehabilitation and civic scale plazas. In conjunction with workshop projects, lectures with illustrative material are given on the specific issues of site feasibility, site programming, site planning, and design strategies.
