LARC 2140: Designed Urban Ecologies

Focuses on sustainable community/campus/neighborhood design at the intersection of large scale urban and environmental systems. Primary topics include mixed use programming in relation to systems ranging from zoning and transit to the material flows of human and wildlife habitats. This studio course introduces basic geographical information systems (GIS) and application of landscape ecology principles. Projects examine the role of landscape systems and the formation and reformulation of land development scenarios.
