Urban Design principles and perspectives are taught via annotated slide presentations - one for each principle, in a progressive sequence of layers resulting in a new and increasingly powerful way of seeing, evaluating, and imagining tbe potential of cities. Each presentation is followed by a question & answer session. Urban Design Studio Project exercises of increasing complexity are assigned and reviewed at the pedestrian scale, plaza scale, and district scale at the junctures between completion of associated lecture components. Advanced Courses focus on specific Urban Design Project Types particularly relevant in today's changing wirld - Transit-oriented District Design, and City Design & Urban Planning for the Innovation Economy.
