ARCH 4935/6935

The seminar’s objective is to provide students with a series of insights into the potentials of ‘Socioecological Urbanism’. A term that refers to a specific reformulation of today’s discipline and practices of ‘urban design, also called ‘urbanism’ in some parts of Europe. This reformulation broadens the role of architecture as a discipline to question the morphology, programs, and urban integration of today’s modernistic archetypes of the infrastructures of the city.
