ARCH.3550 The City and the Environment (Formerly ARHI.3550)

Id: 040400 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


This course examines the many ways that communities, architects, and developers have responded (or not responded) to the American landscape and environment. It will begin with the earliest settlements established by the colonists, such as Havana, Cuba, and New York City and progress to the present with a special emphasis on Lowell and Boston. The course will not only examine specific cities but also architectural utopias, city planning, the national park system, sustainable design, and contemporary efforts to merge the needs of the city with environmental awareness.
