A forum for exploring how our individual career pursuits might be collectively focused toward the achievement of common ideals.

PEDAGOGIC STRUCTURE: Taught from the perspective of an urban scholar-architect, this course is organized around issues of Equity, Cosmology, Spirituality, Community, and Technology. These fluid points of departure are intended as guides for a spirited exploration of the explicit (and subtle) connections between people, land, and power in our cities and the specific effects of these linkages upon contemporary urban rebuilding. Intended primarily for students with non-architectural backgrounds, seminar explorations are aimed at providing a broadened philosophical understanding of the Who and Why of contemporary urban redevelopment policies — particularly as such policies impact on emerging back-to-the-city movements — here, and abroad. Building upon time-honored social intentions inherent in urban design and city planning practices, the seminar encourages each of us to gain a view of ourselves as vanguards and environmental stewards necessarily engaged in 'directed' change.
