      Course Description
    Urban Design 1: Understanding Urban Form is a multidisciplinary course with its roots in architecture, urban planning, and environmental design. Intended to be an introduction to urban design, the course is open to students who are interested in neighborhoods, cities, and larger metropolitan regions. Investigates the question of urbanism in general, and how the urban designer could be effective in improving the quality of life of cities through facilitating urban reinvestment and encouraging urban sustainability. By improving visual and physical quality of the built environment, urban design attempts all to make neighborhoods and cities beautiful, livable, as well as socioeconomically and culturally stronger.
