Elements of Urban Design is an advanced core studio for the post professional programs in urban design. The studio introduces a wide host of ideas, strategies and technical skills associated with current thinking on urbanism, and speculates on the designer's projective role in analyzing and shaping complex metropolitan systems. Rigorous research informs a series of interrelated exercises that construct diverse hypotheses about new formal and experiential urban identities across multiple scales of intervention and development. Prerequisites: Enrollment in urban design programs or completion of studio series GSD 1201-1202 or 1211-1212.
