EDAD409 The City: Interviews With Innovators In Design and City Process 3cr

This highly interactive lecture course seeks to
expose students to a group of experts who are
challenging the larger forces that affect
building design, including public participation in zoning
and city master-planning, economics, finance, and
development models, and resiliency and climate
change regulations.  Guest lecturers such as Dr.
Barry Bluestone, Dr. Atyia Martin, Chief
Resiliency Officer for the City of Boston, and others will
present their work and engage in a lively
interview-style conversation around how designers
can shape projects in intelligent and innovative
ways to deal with today’s complex realities.
Prior to the ‘interviews’, students are expected to
familiarize themselves with the work of the
visitor and compile questions that they will ask the guest.

Prerequisites: Knowledge in architectural design and Interest in planning initiatives in the cities of Boston and Cambridge.
