LIB/ARCH2205ID Almeida SP22

This special topics course offers an interdisciplinary approach to investigating our built environment using a case study focused on a specific place each semester. This course combines physical examination with information research and data collection using methodologies developed in multiple disciplines. Students from a variety of departments engage in on-site exploration and in-depth research of a location in New York City. In this section of the course, students will explore public spaces and sites along the south Brooklyn waterfront. We will examine issues related to ecology, urban planning, and social justice.
