InstructorMichael von Hausen, MVH Urban Planning and Design, Inc.

Our buildings and spaces need to fit our urban, social, and economic environments. This intensive urban design course draws from many disciplines—architecture, ecology, economics, engineering, real estate development, landscape architecture, planning, and sociology—to find that fit.

Drawing on the experience and insight of many specialists who play a role in urban design, as well as our students' individual and collective knowledge, we’ll use the city as our studio for the careful examination of space and built form.
