Advanced Seminar: Urban Nature and City Design >> Content Detail



Students should choose a case of their choice to research in order to present their findings for discussion. The subject may be historical or an example of contemporary theory and practice; it may relate closely to a student's thesis. The choice of case and topic will be made and developed in consultation with the instructor. A paper, posted on a Web site, is required. Students will also keep a weekly journal of reflections on readings and class discussions. All work is courtesy of the student named, and used with permission.
