UPM-621 Urban Placemaking and Management

3 Credits

This course surveys recent prominent theories of urban spatial design-ways of reading, understanding, and designing urban space-and asks: What works and what doesn't, and why? It is an introductory urban design course for students from a range of academic and professional backgrounds. Through seminar format discussions supported by visual media, intensive readings of progenitors' original writings (and plans I designs), critiques by respected urban scholars, and case study analyses, the course exposes students to a wide variety of urban spatial theories and typologies.
