Students in this class will think deeply about the design elements necessary to create a livable city. They will become urban planners who consider how a city is shaped by its natural borders and what impact urban sprawl will have on the surrounding environment. They will consider the needs of their citizens and look for innovative solutions to meet them, in every area from public transportation, public space and cultural identity. Students will examine cities from around the world, as well as studying urban space in Madison, to think critically about what ultimately makes a city livable. By the end of the course, students will have used this knowledge to create a model city.
