Course Description

The course applies sustainable design principles to selected urban sites with the objective of creating meaningful places of residence, work, shopping and entertainment for current and future communities. Student teams select a site and work on its redevelopment. Students learn to do urban design analysis, research relevant history, demographics, and the market environment, develop a program of uses, propose a design using SketchUp, apply LEED for Neighborhood Development criteria, present their project to the class, and produce a final planning report. Lectures, readings and assigned papers are designed to inform the planning and design process.
