Class Title Theories and Methods in Urban Design
Description Theories and Methods in Urban Design --- This seminar explores contemporary theories of urbanism as a lens for understanding urban design practice. Cities are both participants in, and resultants of, systems of economy and power. As such, they evince design relationships between their public and the prevailing economic and political systems. Drawing from architecture, planning, urban design, cultural theory, geography, sociology, political science, and ecology, the course presents the interdisciplinary cross-section of theories of urbanization that will be used to examine the methods that have been and are being used to design cities today, globally.
