InstructorGerry Mulholland, GP Rollo & Associates, Land Economists; Michael von Hausen, MVH Urban Planning and Design, Inc.

Traditionally, there has been a significant gap between financial analysts and urban designers. This course helps close this gap by introducing the important relationships between economics and urban design.

On the first day, we’ll introduce the tools and techniques of land economics analysis. On the second day, we’ll focus on applying these tools through a variety of current case studies that are relevant to urban design and planning practice.
