Description

Using the climate change crisis as its central theme, Sustainability by Design explores the relationship between the urban form and the demands it exerts on the planet. Developing an understanding of the cultural, ecological, and built networks that make up the city, you will learn how the urban form is the result of policy interacting with technology and landscape capacity. You will become proficient in looking at the physical form of cities and proposing how their physical form might be adapted for improved ecological function, affordability, and quality of life.
