This upper-level seminar focuses on green sustainable cities’ planning concepts and initiatives by comparing American and European cities. It explores environmentally friendly dimensions of urban form, design, transportation, sprawl, urban ecology and restoration, energy and material use, green architecture, environmental justice, and social equity. Readings, writings, discussions, planning exercises, case studies, and field trips allow students to understand sustainable urban patterns and dimensions. Each student will have an individual research project, which involves data collection and analysis, identification of urban and environmental problems, and recommendations.
