Introduction to Urban Physical Design

URPL-GP.1620, 4 points.

Semester: Fall


Required for M.U.P. students.

This course will concentrate on design, research, interpretation, and analysis of urban spaces in the New York region, United States, and abroad. As inherent in an “introductory” course we will have limited opportunity to delve deeply into each topic, but will center discussion around a single focus – the forces that shape urban form. In the end, each of you will have developed a new awareness for the built environment and the critical elements in successful place making.
