This course examines how theories and debates in urban design have been implemented historically in the development of cities, and in the development of the culture of cities. This course will look intensively at how such issues as ghettoization, poverty management, and management of transportation networks, as well as disaster management has penetrated the cultural imagination, and how that cultural imagination then reshapes our relationship to the city.
