This studio-based design course offers students the opportunity to conceptualize, plan, and test urban design scenarios and solutions on variously sized tracts of land. Throughout the semester, students will be introduced to different building types, vehicular requirements, transportation integration, and regulatory frameworks that all affect design decisions. Additionally, students will study the interaction of costs and design, and the methodology a developer might use when deciding whether or not to pursue a project. Students will work individually and in teams on four separate and sequential "sketch" problems. At the completion of each problem, students will present their work at a class review session. During the semester students will also be asked to review various historic plans, and to make presentations and critiques of these plans. Familiarity with digital design software is an advantage, but is not required.
