Networked Urbanism: Design Thinking Initiatives for a Better Urban Life

Networked Urbanism was a series of studios in the Urban Planning and Design Department at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design that occurred between 2010 and 2014. Taught by Belinda Tato and Jose Luis Vallejo of Ecosistema Urbano, the studio aimed to bring network-design thinking to the forefront of design disciplines, and strove to solve real-world problems on the ground, providing an alternative to the traditional approach of designing urban environments from a bird’s-eye view and a single designer’s perspective. This book encompasses the results of many years of student research and hard work.
