Community Architecture Studio

Cities are a rich record of the past and are often seen as a collection of districts and neighborhood communities. These places compose a mosaic of opportunity that can profoundly shape our future. 

In this course, you’ll become familiar with American cities and explore how districts and neighborhoods can promote benefits and positive outcomes for the community. You’ll work collectively to formulate a design response to the prompt: How can cities be reimagined to better address our needs and interests?
