URP 530 – American Planning 1900-2000


This course examines the development of American City planning in the twentieth century including consideration of pre-1900 and non-U.S. influences.  We will emphasize the physical design of cities over time, the role of policy and ideas about urbanization.  The course will include visual case studies of U.S. cities to illustrate the patterns of urban planning.  We will examine the impact of events, issues, strategies, and planning practice throughout the century.  The class is intended for planning students and architects; it is also open to students in non-planning fields such as natural resources, engineering, and the social sciences.
