Semester Course
Fall 2013 URPL-GP.1620.001 Introduction to Urban Physical Design

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.

Spring 2010 URPL-GP.2680.001 Advanced Urban Physical Design

Building on the skills introduced in Introduction to Urban Design (URPL-GP.1620) this course will concentrate on developing an understanding of how to develop a design methodology that includes the use of digital, analytical and graphic tools to enhance their knowledge of sustainable urban design. The focus will be on urban spaces and communities in the New York City area and region. Work will be split between individual and group work; enabling students to enhance their own knowledge of the design techniques and methods while the group work will allow for development of the iterative design process necessary for sustainable urban design solutions.
