Course Description

This special topics course offers an interdisciplinary approach to investigating our built environment using a case study focused on a specific place each semester.

Students from a variety of departments engage in on-site exploration and in-depth research of a location in New York City. Faculty from the Library and Architectural Technology Departments are teaching the course this semester, and will thus focus course material through a lens of architecture, urban studies, and information studies.
