Theories of Urbanism

This course introduces the histories, theories, and policies that create urban environments in a global context, along with a set of tools to measure, assess, and design within them. Cities in this case are considered not only by their apparent built forms. Students are invited to look holistically at cities and their position as part of a complex web of consumption and production, including the ecosystem services and multiple networks that support their existence.
