RBST 3400 Design Urbanism

Though the use of seminal writings on urban design ideology presented by architects and historians in the 20th century such as Bacon, Lynch, Koolhaas and Gandelsonas, students will be challenged to consider these significant foundations in order to apply a broader awareness of urbanism to their own architectural design process. Concurrently, methodologies of research and analysis that employ both conceptual and intuitive systems of investigation will be exercised as a critical means of observing, documenting and communicating about the city and the architecture that contributes to its form.
