Primary Instructor:

An in-depth exposure to American and international urban planning, architecture, urban design, and landscape architecture that is environmentally sustainable and resilient, as well as culturally enriched, aesthetically accomplished, socially equitable, and economically viable.

The built environment accounts for approximately half our planet’s energy consumption and carbon footprint, and strongly impacts global climate change and resource depletion, both of which can be dramatically reduced by good design and planning that also improve the quality of life, health and community for humans and other species.

The lectures, class discussions and readings will include a wide range of scales and topics, such as ecological footprints, passive solar design, social and economic justice, suburban sprawl, waste and water management, agriculture and food, cultural norms, alternative urbanisms, and energy- and environmentally-conscious buildings, cities and landscapes, as well as related regulations, policy and best practices.

Intended Audience:

ELIGIBILITY – Up to 80 undergraduate students from any pre-major or major with priority given to Pre-Architecture. Graham Scholars, PitE, and RC Urban Studies students.

Class Format:

It is a readings- and lecture-based course
