Studio: Land Use & Urban Design PLAN-820
This course combines basic principles and practices of city planning and urban design to a specific topical project. Physical, social, economic, cultural and political factors are considered in order to produce a workable plan and viable design. Projects are selected from actual planning/design situations in urban and/or regional contexts and require documentation and development strategies for political discourse. In addition to typical studio work, there are lectures, site visits, written reports and input from official and community representatives.
