Welcome to Design VII Urban Design

This advanced design course covers a range of urban and architectural design issues. Students explore both the theoretical and pragmatic aspects of design applied in an urban environment. This course incorporates previous studio and lecture coursework to tie together topics of urban planning, architectural design, environmental sustainability and historic preservation. Using New York City as an urban laboratory, there are three research assignments and two design projects, varying in focus, size and complexity. Students address developing programs, the design of open public space, massing, open private space and the analysis of larger scale projects. Students work in a variety of formats: individually, in pairs, and in groups. Hand drawing, computer drafting and rendering, as well as physical and electronic modeling will be utilized for presentations
